AUSTIN - Construction has begun on Austin ISD's 68,000-sf districtwide performing arts center, which will house a 1,200-seat auditorium, a 250-seat black-box theater, sound and lighting demonstration classrooms and a recording studio for student use. Located at 1500 Barbara Jordan Blvd., the center is slated to open in January 2015.

Director of Fine Arts Greg Goodman said the center will include a dedicated dance space, art gallery, library, dressing rooms and theater rehearsal space.

The district paid about $4 million for the 4.46-acre site in the Mueller development. The construction budget for the building and 400-space parking garage including design costs, permits and fees is $36 million. Construction will be funded by a 2008 bond.
