Austin City Council Approves Relocation of Historic Home on UT’s West Campus for Student Housing Development

by Katie Sloan

Austin, Texas — The Austin City Council has approved the removal of a restrictive covenant on the historic Dabney-Horne home located on the University of Texas at Austin campus, allowing it to be moved less than a mile from its current location at 507 West 23rd St.

After the Dabney-Horne house is relocated to 901 Shoal Cliff Court, owner David Kanne intends to sell the site to Johnson Trube & Associates, an Austin-based developer with plans for a new student housing development. The proposed project will provide 670 beds to students, of which 10 percent will be offered as affordable housing.
