Imagine Austin

As demonstrated in cities around the world, soccer can truly galvanize a community. That was the intention behind bringing Austin its first professional sports team, Austin FC, and redeveloping an underutilized site into a state-of-the-art soccer stadium. The new stadium provides unparalleled benefits to the community and creates a world class match-day experience in fast-developing northwest Austin.

Q2 Stadium is the catalyst that converted McKalla Place, a former industrial site, into a thriving community space for sports, parks, performances, and events that celebrate the city’s heritage and culture.


CAA ICON represented Two Oak Ventures since the inception of this project. In the beginning stages, CAA ICON provided Strategic Advisory and Feasibility and Planning services, followed by Project Management services for the development of the stadium.


Strategic Advisory

CAA ICON provided Strategic Advisory services for Two Oak Ventures including lease negotiations and deal structure comparisons.

Feasibility and Planning

Our team also provided Feasibility and Planning services including a Project Development Plan, which included assessing potential sites, strategic planning and financing support, and economic and fiscal impact support. Once a site was chosen, CAA ICON worked with Two Oak Ventures and numerous consultants to develop and produce a Proposal and Development Plan to the City of Austin for final approval.

Project Management

On August 15, 2018, Austin City Council voted to move ahead with negotiations for the MLS Stadium at McKalla Place. CAA ICON provided full Project Management services for the design and construction of the new stadium.
