Burt-Watts Industries Inc. broke ground this week on the Sally and Mack Brown Rise School of Austin at 4800 Manor Road in the Mueller development.
The 25,000-square-foot facility, which will serve children with developmental disabilities, was designed by O’Connell Robertson.
The private nonprofit it not releasing the cost of the school, though some published reports estimate a value of $5.6 million.
The building provides a permanent home for the school and is expected to open this summer. Until recently, Mack Brown was the University of Texas’ football coach.
