Project Catalyst will be a “Second Domain” on East Riverside

Will Project Catalyst be a second Domain?

Plans are afoot to build a huge new development, Project Catalyst, on East Riverside at Pleasant Valley. It’s been referred to as a second Domain, Austin Towers reports.

Project Catalyst, will cover 97 acres, about 1/3rd the size of the Domain. There are several tracts involved, with the biggest currently occupied by the Ballpark Apartments. Those apartments will be demolished to make way for the new development.

Buildings with heights up to 10 stories can be constructed on the site, much higher than anything else in the area. The developer filed a Traffic Impact Analysis filed with the city which outlined what will be included in Project Catalyst. It’s set to have 4,709 apartment units and 600 hotel rooms. There will also be 3,987,300 square feet of office space and 436,250 square feet of general retail space. Finally, there will be 60,000 square feet of medical/dental space.

The project is practically next door to the new Oracle Campus on Lakeshore Drive.
