3-story project planned for South Congress

The former St. Vincent de Paul thrift shop, which had been a fixture on South Congress Avenue for more than two decades, is about to take on new life as the space is renovated and a three-story building with shops and offices is built next to it.

The project, called Saint Vincent, is expected to break ground in the first quarter of 2017 along a section of South Congress that is seeing a burst of new development, with some businesses relocating or closing.

The property is valued at $2.7 million for 2016 by the Travis Central Appraisal District. The project will include about 30 spaces of surface parking. The existing entrance off Congress will be eliminated and the new entrance will be on East Gibson Street. A second building at the back of the property will be razed.

South Congress is a popular destination for locals and tourists, and not everyone is a fan of some of the new development planned in the area — including one mixed-use project that will displace several local businesses.
