A bicyclist, residents and shoppers walk past a grocery store in the Seaholm District, a former industrial section downtown Austin, now an EcoDistrict, featuring condos and mixed use retail stores and restaurants.jpg
The Seaholm District is named after the decommissioned Austin Energy Power Plant’s Generator Building, which in turn was named for former City Manager, Walter Seaholm. This historic, art-deco style building sits at the heart of the District. The District boundaries are Lady Bird Lake to the South, 5th Street to the North, Lamar Boulevard to the West and San Antonio Street to the East. It’s a part of Downtown where the typical city street grid is a bit disjointed, but it would equate to approximately 30 typical City blocks - stock image.
