Austin Music Hall slated for demolition
Wednesday, July 8, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano
As reported by the Austin Business Journal yesterday, Austin Music Hall will soon be no more. According to the article, the music venue will be demolished to make way for a 28-story office building by Austin’s Cielo Property Group and Dallas-based Tier REIT. Demolition of the music hall will begin in January, and the project is expected to be completed in 2017. Reaction on social media was swift and reflected shock – the venue was built in 1995 and underwent a costly, multimillion-dollar renovation that was completed in 2007.
