After broadcasting from leased space for 52 years, KMFA is getting a new permanent home. We have purchased land adjacent to the Rebekah Baines Johnson Center (RBJ Center) as part of a mixed-use development just east of I-35 on the north shore of Lady Bird Lake. The planned 18,000-square-foot building will open in late 2020, tripling the size of the current KMFA studios and allowing for new amenities including performance and recording spaces.
The redeveloped RBJ Center will open up myriad opportunities for growth and engagement. The new "urban village" will be home to retail, offices, market rate rentals, and affordable housing on its 17.8-acre site.
Details about the individual interior spaces and fundraising campaign are forthcoming. For more information on how you can support our future home, contact David Hammond, Director of Development.
