One of the most exciting aspects of officing in the center of Austin’s urban core is that we have front row seats to all of the new and exciting projects happening in our metro. Just next door it has been fun watching the progress on The Bowie, a 36-story mixed-use apartment tower whose site is located at West Fifth and Bowie.

The Bowie is being designed by Dallas-based architecture firm HKS Ink, whose portfolio boasts a long list of distinguished high-rise towers including The Ashton and Frost Tower. Harvey Cleary is the General Contractor and Endeavor Real Estate Group is the Developer.

7th & Rio Grande Apartments

Scroll Down For Updates... 

   

The luxury apartment tower under construction at 7th and Rio Grande, nicknamed 7Rio, originated as a 32-story high-rise condo venture scheduled for a fall 2009 completion under Dallas-based CLB Partners.  However, this intended endeavor did not come to fruition, and the current developer, CW Capital Partners and investor Behringer Harvard, purchased the site in 2011.  

The site spans three lots at the Southeast corner of 7th street and Rio Grande, and is currently assessed for $1,584,365.  The site plan permit was signed and approved by the city of Austin in December of 2012; nearly one year and five months after the

Hotel Van Zandt finally broke ground in late August of this year - over six years after the site was purchased by JMI Realty.  The 16-story, 320 room Kimpton Hotel was originally planned as a 29-story hotel and condo tower, but developers recently decided to narrow the project’s scope. The trendy lodging will be situated adjacent to The Shore Condos, at 605 Davis St., and call the ever-growing Rainey Street District it’s home. A well-rounded assortment of amenities, including 12,000 square feet of meeting space, 1,300 square feet of exercise facilities, a 6,800 square foot pool deck and bar, appeal to a

March 20, 2014 

The development of 214 Barton Springs has been a long time in the making! The site was formerly owned by Crescent Resources and intended to be a condo project called Aquaterra. Once the recession hit though, this venture was put on hold and Crescent Resources eventually decided to sell.

In late 2012 Hunt Cos. Inc. and Street Lights Residential purchased the property with a new vision. The project was revamped and rebranded as a luxury apartment tower with a unique yet sophisticated name: The Catherine.

The grand lady will reach her full height at 19 stories tall, with 14 stories of residential sitting atop 5 stories of parking garage. The

It was over two years ago that the Queen of Rainey St. development, Bridget Dunlap, originally announced her plans for Container Bar. Kevin Burns, our Urbanspace CEO, actually owns the property site at 90 Rainey St., and the team has been patiently waiting, along with the rest of Austin, to watch the venture come to life.

The proposed bar will be uniquely constructed out of refurbished 8’x8’x40’ shipping containers, stacked one on top of the other. Plans include space for a courtyard patio and balcony. The bar was originally set to open in August 2012, but has been pushed back and pushed back again (for

The Seaholm Redevelopment is destined to have some fun neighbors to the East!

8th & Nueces: Aspen Heights Apartments

At the end of November 2013, engineering firm Bury Partners submitted a site plan application for 805 Nueces St. for apartment developer, Aspen Heights.  The project is currently named 8th and Nueces and proposes a 200 unit apartment complex.  The 22-story high rise will be designed by Rhode Partners and is scheduled to get started middle of 2014.  Apartment renderings have been released to the design commission by Rhode Partners.  Even though Aspen Heights is typically known for developing student housing for colleges around the nation, the location and high end building detail in the renderings lead us to believe this project will not be following suit.
