Austin’s newest entertainment and sports venue is home to the city’s Major League Soccer team. On 26 acres, the LEED Silver 410,000-sq-ft stadium has permanent seating for 20,000 as well as club seats, lounges and luxury suites.
The site required removal of a substantial amount of soil. And because the design and construction of drainage required accommodating a nearby rail track, reconfiguring drainage from nearby sites and accommodating future development of adjacent parcels, the team worked with the city on a multi-acre drainage design covering 75-plus acres.
The project was delivered in March 2021 in time for the start of the MLS season.
