Briefing of the Lone Star District Project generally located at 500 and 600 Lone Star Blvd. within the Inner City TIRZ in Council District 5.

SUMMARY:

The Lone Star District is a 32-acre mixed-use development that will include multi-family housing, retail space, commercial space, entertainment, hospitality, office space, and open market space. The core of the development will be the adaptive reuse of the historic Lone Star brewhouse. The project will be built in multiple phases starting in the fourth quarter of 2021 and continuing for approximately a decade. The total built space will exceed 1,000,000 square feet and include approximately 1,282 housing units of which 20% (approximately 256) will be affordable.

The Lone Star District redevelopment-with a total development cost of approximately $709,267,533-will have both an economic impact and a community impact. During construction, the project is estimated to create approximately 3,900 direct jobs and 7,734 indirect jobs.

New public greenspaces will also be created and additional portals to the Mission Reach Trail.
