Austin Playhouse Arts Center
In April 2019, Austin Playhouse purchased a 2.8 acre site located at 1717 E. Anderson Lane along the 183 frontage road in northeast Austin.
We engaged Forge Craft Architecture to design a welcoming and accessible arts center that will serve as a creative hub for Austin artists and provide tremendous growth opportunities for both Austin Playhouse and AP’s partners in the arts.
The facility is fully permitted and shovel ready.
Austin Playhouse has already completed Phase 1 of the building campaign by raising $1,500,000 for land purchase, initial architectural drawings, engineering plans, a feasibility study and project consultants. We are in the middle of Phase 2 with a $7,500,000 goal that includes site development and building construction.
On December 14, 2023, Austin City Council approved a $4,500,000 investment in this project. The full blog post on this contribution can be read here.
