Austin Design Week | JR Gideon & Clayton Taylor

Today we will be talking to Clayton Taylor and JR Gideon who are jointly working on the Eastbound project, a new mixed-use development in East Austin. This project is designed for open-air business-ready gatherings on a large scale and incorporates the current trend of destination mixed-use. Additionally, we will be speaking about how real estate professionals are already transforming where we work and how this has changed during the pandemic. Both of our guests have impressive professional portfolios, Clayton is the Founder and Principal at architecture firm West of West based out of Portland Oregon and JR is the Development Associate at Lincoln Property Company in Texas.  

The Eastbound project has reflected the growing and shifting center of development projects during the COVID pandemic. During quarantine, disruptions and supply chain shortages have exposed vulnerabilities in the production stages of development. Clayton and Gideon discuss how they were able to overcome these challenges in order to continue moving this project forward. Join us on this week’s episode as we learn more about our guests’ current projects and examine the impact of COVID on the development of the Eastbound project.
