My project is centered around the houses and businesses of Burnet Rd. This section of North Austin has been home to many local businesses and restaurants for decades. Recently though, incoming residents, often non-native Texans, have been steadily developing new houses and businesses in the area. The unforeseen side effect has been rising rent costs and reduction of business for some of the more eclectic shops that were once iconic. This has forced many closures.
With this in mind our project aims to document stores, houses, and attractions that might be under threat in the area. We believe this will serve to preserve the Austin that has been so widely known, but is slowly fading.
