BACK TO SCHOOL: Austin school district debuts headquarters while others open new schools

After nearly 35 years in its prime real estate spot downtown on West Sixth Street, the Austin school district this year will uproot its administration building and debut a new headquarters.

The former Southfield building, which will be the district’s new headquarters, sits on the northwest corner of Interstate 35 and U.S. 290 in South Austin. Shaped somewhat like a bat wing, the renovated nine-story building will feature an atrium, a 640-square-foot employee gym and open collaborative spaces on every employee floor. The first two floors are designated public spaces, including the district’s new school board room. The superintendent’s office on the ninth floor overlooks the Austin skyline and St. Edwards University.
