A new, exciting development will soon be taking shape along the Red Line. Next week, Foundation Communities will break ground on the M Station, Austin’s first tax-credit funded, LEED-rated affordable apartment housing development. The M Station will be right across the street from the MLK, Jr. Station providing access to rail and bus service.
According to Foundation Communities, the M Station will be a model of eco-friendly, transit-oriented development and affordable housing that includes a childcare center, a Community Learning Center and a neighborhood computer lab.
The ground-breaking ceremony takes place next Wednesday, May 12 at 4 p.m. at 2906 E. MLK Blvd, followed by a neighborhood block party from 5-8 p.m. at the Redeemer Presbyterian Church (2111 Alexander St.).
