Brandywine to Convert Broadmoor Campus in Austin into Mixed-Use Development

by Taylor Williams

AUSTIN, TEXAS — Brandywine Realty Trust (NYSE: BDN) will convert IBM’s Broadmoor campus in Austin, which spans more than 65 acres and houses more than 1 million square feet of office space, into a mixed-use, transit-oriented development. The first phase of the redevelopment, which is expected to be complete by early 2019, will revamp two office buildings. The overall project will create more public green space, walking trails and recreation areas to leverage the property’s proximity to The Domain, a shopping and entertainment destination that connects to the campus. Brandywine acquired Broadmoor, which has been discussed as a potential site for Amazon’s HQ2, about three years ago. The campus was developed as a build-to-suit for IBM, which still occupies most of the space, in the early 1990s.
