AUSTIN -- The last remaining structure at the former Holly St. city power plant was torn down Thursday.
City council approved the plan to tear it down in May at a cost of $10.8 million.
$7 million will come from Austin Energy's budget. The rest pays for asbestos removal that has delayed that project.
Plans for the nine acre site are still being discussed and recently included a park with an arts center. That idea was rejected by neighbors who said it would increase traffic in the area.
The final master plan still needs approval from a number of boards and commissions before the council votes on it.
Austin City Council could vote on the final master plan for the new Holly Street Park as soon as this summer.
