2010 South Lamar Blvd

This is the project at the southwest corner of South Lamar Blvd and Hether St, formerly the site of La Feria Restaurant. As of Aug 2019, it was slated to become adminstrative offices (28,332 sf) for JUUL Labs with the plans for finish out currently under review by the City. The original restaurant/retail uses for the ground floor have been eliminated.

Groundwater Issue

During the construction, underground water was discovered. There has been an ongoing dispute as to whether to call it a spring or simply underground water. In any case, this water flows into the subsurface garage and accummulates. Every 60-80 minutes, a sump pump comes on and discharges this water for about 5 minutes. Initially, this water was discharged to the grassy area west of the building and then seeped across the sidewalk to the gutter where it flows down the gutter to South Lamar, crosses Hether near the crosswalk, and then continues north on the west side of South Lamar to the stormwater sewer inlet.

Then, the owner put in a pipe and discharged it to the concrete drive where it runs across the sidewalk to the gutter and then again flows down the gutter to South Lamar, crosses Hether, and flows down South Lamar to the stormwater sewer inlet on South Lamar. The constant water flow is causing significant damage to the street.

A number of complaints were made, and they were issued a Notice of Violation. The nearest stormwater inlet is on South Lamar at Caliber Collision which is claimed to be too far way to tie into, and the City of Austin South Lamar CIP will not be installing any new storm drain pipe in this area. The owners applied for and received approval on June 10, 2020 for a Site Plan Correction to allow the water to sheetflow through a pseudo-loading zone to the gutter. However, the water will still flow down the gutter, cross Hether, and flow down South Lamar.

The City apparently has no further plans to deal with this other than approving the Site Plan Correction even though the issue described in the NOV (not tying directly into the storm sewer) does not seem to have been addressed.
