Does anyone know if this small building is being sold with the seaholm powerplant property across the street or is not part of the power plant?

That would make a heckuva restaurant location with a Happy Hour deck.

It's the old intake building for the power plant, and it's not included in the redevelopment of the powerplant.

The city is exploring doing something with it, though. You can read all you could ever want to know about it on this PDF from the city web site:
http://www.austintexas.gov/sites/def...gation_Web.pdf

Among the proposed uses would be restaurant, art gallery/museum, combination of those or other multi-use, and even residential.

Also, directly to the left of Seaholm in the pic (across the railroad tracks) they are currently under construction on an 18 story residential building.

Cool, thanks for that VERY detailed report

Personally I think it's ugly and that there shouldn't be any buildings on the Lady Bird Lake waterfront.

That used to be the Cedar Door, used to like that location much better than its current location downtown.

I have many fond memories of the Cedar Door at that location. Of course, everything around that area was completely different and a totally different feel. No condos, no pedestrian bridge, lots of trees on that lot, no traffic. I actually haven't been inside since they moved, but I pass by it a lot. Seems like a good location.

Nope, wrong location. See the previous thread on TJs for a map of the development project at Seaholm.

I also have some fond non-memories .

The Seaholm site for Cedar Door attracted the college/slacker crowd mix, but when they moved it downtown, it has become (in my few visits) more of a place for lawyers and those that want to marry them.....way too upscale. I am sure it is great for business, but just not what it used to be.
