Sneak Peek Into Austin’s New Luxury Apartment Buildings

Posted by on Thursday, January 30th, 2020 at 2:51pm.

The iconic Austin skyline is going to change dramatically in the coming years. With more and more people flooding in, the buildings just keep growing! And, luckily, our realty experts have the rundown on some of the most highly anticipated buildings opening soon!

Here are a few buildings we’re most excited about. 


5th and Lavaca

The tower being built at 5th and Lavaca is going to measure at just over 500 feet, meaning its 45 floors will tower over the surrounding buildings. In addition to 10 full stories of parking, the current plans have restaurant space on the ground floor and two floors reserved solely for resident amenities.

If you’re looking for an apartment with easy access to Rainey street and Austin’s best restaurant scene, this is the place to be! 


The Independent

You have probably already noticed 301 West Avenue’s “Jenga Tower” in downtown Austin. The Independent is 58 stories with 370 units; about halfway up the tower, there is an amenity truss, which has some premiere amenities for tenants, including a lounge, board room, yoga studio, fitness center, and even a movie theater. 

If you do ever have to leave your apartment, you’ll be a block away from shopping, hiking, & Austin’s new central library.


6X Guadalupe

Right at the intersection of Austin’s most famous streets, 6th and Guadalupe, this complex is hoping to change Austin’s skyline along with how residents live in the building itself. While it will still boast plenty of luxury apartments and a slew of amenities, the building will also multifamily, office, and high-end retail space.

Top Amenity Trends

Each downtown Austin luxury apartment building has unique amenities that you will love. If you have particular amenities you require, just let our talented realtors know and we will find the perfect highrise for you! Popular amenities include:

Fitness Amenities

Nearly every downtown Austin luxury apartment building features various fitness amenities, which may include gyms, yoga studios, weight rooms, and lap pools. 

Community-Oriented Amenities

Green spaces and rooftop shared space allow residents to get some much needed fresh air. Game rooms and lounges provide a comfortable community space where neighbors can interact in a fun environment. 

Coworking spaces and conference rooms are also becoming popular additions as remote work takes off. Since Austin is start-up central, residents love being able to have meetings and work in a separate area away from their living space, but still close to home. 

Pet Amenities

Dog parks, pet concierges, and even pet spas may be available in luxury highrise apartments. Depending on your location, you can also get easy access to Austin’s Green Belt for the best dog walks in town!

Luxury Apartment Technology

Austin is a tech-focused city, and downtown luxury apartments reflect that. You can find amenities such as electric car charging stations, state-of-the-art movie theaters, and Google Fiber in beautiful downtown living spaces. You can also find many smart home features in the individual units such as smart locks, nest thermostats, and integrated security.
