The Brodie Oaks PUD is approved

Turning a shopping mall into a city.

The Brodie Oaks PUD is approved

OK folks, as of press time City Council still had not acted on the police oversight resolution, so I'll fill you in on that Monday.

City Council unanimously approved the long-anticipated Brodie Oaks PUD this afternoon, authorizing developer Barshop & Oles to redevelop the 42-year-old shopping center at the intersection of S. Lamar & Ben White Blvd into a dense, mixed-use neighborhood with lots of green space.

Or, as James Rambin of Towers Austin put it:  "transforming Brodie Oaks from shopping center to city."
