The Modern Austin Residences | Development

Kevin Burns Reveals New Details About Rainey Street Skyscraper, Including Name and Project Team

The tower formerly known as 9092 Rainey, which has been in the works for several years, officially has a new name and new project specifications.

 

The Modern Austin Residences will have 55 stories featuring 345 market-rate residences and 20 affordable housing units. Austin’s Urbanspace Real Estate + Interiors is developing the project.

The affordable housing units will be available to people earning 80% of median family income, which is $98,900 in the Austin metro. The market rate units will start in the $400,000 range for a one-bedroom unit. Three-bedroom units will go for $1.6 million and above.

These updates, provided by Urbanspace CEO Kevin Burns, come just a few months after Austin City Council approved a density bonus for the project, allowing the building to go higher than typically allowed. At the time, the tower was planned to be 51 stories high and to contain 400 total units.

Burns said some of the extra stories were added to improve the look of the crown of the building by hiding water cooling towers and other mechanical features. He said they ended up reducing the number of market rate residences but maintaining the same number of affordable ones.

Many have wondered about the fate of Container Bar, the popular bar made of shipping containers that sits on the project site. Burns said the bar will close just before crews break ground on The Modern, which is set for late March 2022.

However, Bridget Dunlap — who owns Container Bar as well as Clive Bar and Lustre Pearl — has signed on to run an entertainment space in the basement of the building.

“Container Bar had a good run, but I’m excited for what’s next,” Dunlap said in a statement. “This next concept will fill a niche that Austin is missing in the music/hospitality scene, and I’m glad to have the opportunity to stay in our spot.”

Nelsen Partners will be the design architect for the tower, Flintco will be the general contractor and Page will be the architect of record. Urbanspace will handle sales and interior design for the tower.

Sales are expected to begin at the start of next year. Burns said it will likely take two and a half years to complete construction. He projects they’ll finish in the second half of 2024.

Original plans for the tower included hotel space and permanent residences, but Covid-19 forced the developer to rethink the plan.

“The fact of the matter is what my company knows inside and out, backwards and forwards is high-rise condominiums,” Burns said. “So it allowed us to really focus on what we do best.”

Urbanspace has been tapped to sell the condos for other high-profile Austin towers, including The Independent, which has an onsite coffee and cocktail bar on the ground floor, similar to what is planned for The Modern. But The Modern Austin Residences represents Burns’ first foray into high-rise development.

Calls for denser housing within the city limits have grown louder amid the city of Austin’s persistent housing shortage. In June, the Austin Board of Realtors reported that the city had only 0.7 months of housing inventory on the market. That means if no new houses were listed, the city would be completely out of available housing in less than a month.

“We couldn’t beat the timing as far as the current market demands for products in Central Austin,” Burns said.

Rainey Street, in particular, has transformed considerably in recent the years. In the mid-2000s, the neighborhood received Central Business District zoning, making it easier to build big in what was once a residential area. The street is now known in large part for its bars, which largely occupy former single-family homes.

“Rainey street is evolving for families from all different walks of life, for those that want to ditch the car and be able to walk to everything,” Burns said. “I’m excited to see not just my project but the other projects that are going up in the area that are really going to create an incredible experience, not just for those that live there, but for the entire city.”

Austin’s Top Chef Competitor to Open Mexican Eatery on Rainey

Austin’s Top Chef Competitor

to Open Mexican Eatery on Rainey

 

 

For a taste of the Yucatan, head to Rainey Street District, run by an Austin-based top chef.

Chef Gabe Erales, currently the 18th season contestant of Bravo’s top chef and master of Mexican cuisine, will open his first restaurant – a Mexican-inspired restaurant called Bacalar, which draws influence from different regions of the Yucatan peninsula where Erales has his family .

Bacalar, slated to open next fall, will anchor the ground floor of 44 East Ave Residences, the sleek skyscraper currently under construction on the shores of Lady Bird Lake.

Bacalar is a partnership between Erales and Austin-based owner and CEO of Urbanspace Real Estate + Interiors, Kevin Burns, and the company’s lead designer, Merrill Alley. Burns and Alley, who recently launched Urbanspace’s first hospitality concept, Codependent Cocktails and Coffee in the Seaholm District, bought the first floor retail space at 44 East Ave and sought out Erales for the new restaurant partnership.

“I’m very excited to partner with Urbanspace as my relationship with Kevin and Merrill have shown me their true potential in developing projects that are not only unique and exciting, but also a milestone for the Austin community.” says Erales. “I’ve been a close friend of Merrill and her family for 10 years. During this time we exchanged our professional passions, dreams and goals and at the same time witnessed our professional growth. I knew that one day we could create something special together. “

Erales’ previous cooking stints in Austin include chef work at downtown Comedor and local favorite Dai Due Taqueria.

Although the new restaurant’s menu is still under development, the concept is based on Erales’ family memories of Bacalar, the historic and stunning Mexican lakeside town north of Belize, including its good experiences with local flavors and cuisine. Bacalar will also draw on the concept of “La Milpa”, with Erales emphasizing the personal relationships with the farmers he sources from and the ingredients he will highlight in his dishes. And you can bet the menu features odes to traditional Mexican corn and chilli, two of the chef-selected ingredients.

“We love working with passionate, talented people, and Gabe really is the best of the best,” says Burns. “His attention to detail in the preparation of his dishes matches the attention to detail we bring to the environments we create. This concept is about creating an appealing and harmonious setting in which Gabe’s talent takes center stage. “

While fans of Erales’ food will have to wait about a year to dine at Bacalar, they can catch him at Top Chef, the high-stakes culinary competition that airs Thursday night on Bravo.
