UT Office Building

In 1997 , according to the Campus Master Plan, the University of Texas at Austin began developing the Superblock north of Dean Keaton and west of Speedway. Five acres of the block were designated for two parking garages and two office buildings. The master plan projected the closing of Wichita Street to become a pedestrian mall. The buildings flanked a central green space surrounded by mature live oaks. Topographic site changes required the use of dry stack retaining walls to provide stable areas for plantings. Coordination and phasing of the project spanned four years.
