Austin’s “second downtown” is about to get a whole lot bigger.

Work has gotten underway on a new neighbor for North Austin’s mixed-use Domain and Domain Northside developments.

Construction just began on the first phase of Uptown ATX, a $3 billion, 66-acre master-planned neighborhood. The project will dramatically enlarge Austin’s so-called “second downtown,” along Burnet Road near North MoPac Expressway. 

Uptown ATX, formerly known as Broadmoor, eventually will feature nearly 7 million square feet of offices, apartments, stores, and hotel space, as well as a new MetroRail station. The site already is home to IBM’s Austin campus.
