Project Description

3515 Webberville Mixed-Use, “The Duke,” is a sustainable urban project located in an up-and-coming area just east of downtown Austin, Texas. At 4-stories and 44,000 square feet, this mixed-use space consists of 34 residential units with heavy timber and cross-laminated timber (CLT) structural systems exposed throughout.

The ground floor contains 10,000 square feet of shell retail space, while the three upper floors will house apartments, a rooftop terrace, and a PV solar installation. An exterior cantilevered steel stair sets off the otherwise organic façade.

WGI is providing structural and civil engineering services for this project, which is still in construction, with expected completion by the end of 2022.

PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS:

  • First commercial building in Texas to use CLT as both gravity and lateral system
  • 1-hour CLT floors with exposed ceilings
  • 7-ply CLT transfer floor at Level 2
  • Hybrid mass timber and stick-framed structure
