Austin Business Journal

The University of Texas has selected architectural firm Page Southerland Page Inc. as the project architect for the new UT System headquarters building that will be located on Seventh Street between Colorado and Lavaca Streets. The Austin firm was selected from 12 proposals for the $102.4 million project


The 258,000 square foot building will consolidate operations that are currently spread amongst five aging buildings. Once completed, the high-efficiency downtown headquarters are expected to save the university between $2 million and $8 million per year because of reduced maintenance costs, energy savings and revenue generated from leasing space in three of the buildings currently used for UT Systems operations


The finished building will be nine stories including six levels of parking. Page Southerland Page has completed projects for UT in Austin and elsewhere, including a student apartment building located at 2400 Nueces Street, and an engineering research building for the University of Texas at Arlington


As part of the demolition for the new building, UT buildings at Colorado and Lavaca will be leveled. Claudia Taylor Johnson Hall and Ashbel Smitih Hall will remain UT System property and available for redevelopment including retail use. O’Henry Hall at West Sixth and Colorado streets will be available for lease
