Several existing trees will be removed in order to construct the project. The City of Austin, along with the Waller Creek Conservancy, will be relocating some of the larger and/or heritage trees to Waller Creek. The suitable pecan trees on Lot 7 will be removed and cut into slabs for use in the new buildings.
In addition, A Request for Proposals (RFP) was issued, inviting the general public to bid on relocating the trees not already slated for relocation or repurposing. No responses to the RFP were received.
Lastly, the project will plant over 300 new trees, more than double the number on the current site, in order to provide a more pedestrian- friendly environment. TFC and Master Architect Page have been working with the Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center on the selection, placement, and installation standards for new trees and other landscaping.
