In order to alleviate overcrowding at other campuses, this 38,000 SF adaptive re-use project involved conversion of an existing gymnasium and former Austin HS building, at the ACC Rio Grande campus, for reuse as office and classroom space, including the addition of a floor within the original building shell.

The original Rio Grande Campus was leased by ACC in 1975, and purchased in 2004, to serve the urban portion of the college’s service area which serves over 7,100 students.

This project received an award for Project of the Year “Best Adaptive Use”, awarded by the Heritage Society of Austin.
