Real estate investment firms NitNeil Partners of Atlanta, GA and Seamless Capital in Austin, TX are partnering on another joint venture. The new project will be inside an Opportunity Zone at 853 Airport Blvd., north of the Cesar Chavez area in East Austin, TX. The plan is to replace an old, first-generation facility with a new 112,000-square-foot structure on a 1.5-acre site. Construction is expected to end in December 2024.   They previously developed a four-story building with 100,000 square feet of climate-controlled units in an Opportunity Zone in the Mueller neighborhood.
