CIM Group, Seaholm Power Sell Seaholm Mixed-Use Development in Austin
AUSTIN, TEXAS — CIM Group and Seaholm Power LLC have sold the Seaholm Power Plant mixed-use development located at the southwestern edge of downtown Austin. The centerpiece of the project is the 126,000-square-foot, repurposed power plant constructed in the 1950s. The redeveloped Seaholm Power Plant includes four floors of office space designed for its major tenant, athenahealth. Boiler Nine Bar + Grill, a 10,000-square-foot restaurant spanning all four levels, is also part of the redevelopment. Boiler Nine’s concept at Seaholm includes Deck Nine Observatory Bar, a rooftop bar with views of Austin and Lady Bird Lake, and The Boiler Room, a den located on the lowest level of the power plant near the original boiler room. The five acres surrounding the power plant have been redeveloped into a mixed-use space with a 1.5-acre public plaza and multifamily residences. The property also includes a 68,000-square-foot office building and 33,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space anchored by a Trader Joe’s. Construction began on the Seaholm Power Plant project in April 2013, with athenahealth opening its doors in February 2015.
