Posted by Austin Luxury Realty on Monday, March 7th, 2022 at 9:16pm.

Welcome home to understated elegance, incredible views, and access to the best Austin has to offer. Welcome to The Independent!

The Independent is affectionately known by locals as “the Jenga tower” or the “Tetris building” due to its unique shape and artistic aesthetic. At 690 feet, the building is visible from almost anywhere in the city and ranks as the tallest residential tower west of the Mississippi River. From this incredible height comes unbelievable views you won’t find in any other homes for sale in Austin, TX.

As if that wasn’t enough, the comprehensive amenities at The Independent span over 20,000 square feet of space in the building. Through the ingenuity of design and construction, the tower offers two amenity floors that are cantilevered from the building, meaning residents get unobstructed panoramic views of the Austin skyline while enjoying the lounges and outdoor living spaces offered there.

The Independent is clearly set apart from every other high rise in Austin, making it a prime spot for luxury homes in Austin, TX.  With more than 20 different view-optimized floor plans and 370 units, this deluxe high rise delivers the best of luxury inside and the best of Austin outside its 301 West Avenue doors in the Seaholm District of Downtown Austin

Amenities at The Independent

The amenities at this 58-story marvel span over 20,000 square feet. On the ninth floor, you’ll find an infinity-edge heated pool that emerges from the building and overlooks Lady Bird Lake and Shoal Creek. Nearby is the exquisitely manicured outdoor lounge and fireplace that share in the incredible views.

For all the families that call this tower home, there is an activity room and playground, along with a dog park, grooming station, and lounge. Down the hall, you’ll find the club room ready for your next party and the coffee bar with guest suites nearby.

As you move up in floors, the amenities move up in luxury. The 34th floor offers a fitness center that’s cantilevered over the building's edge, a yoga and barre studio with a deck, and an exclusive lounge. You'll also have access to a 25-person theater with floor-to-ceiling cityscape views, a business center, and a 16-person boardroom with two additional conference rooms.

For relaxation and entertaining, the 34th floor is also home to a state-of-the-art chef's catering kitchen, a private dining space, and an exterior outdoor lounge with several fireplaces.

Let’s not forget about the views. Every unit at The Independent offers some of the most protected views you can feast your eyes on in ATX. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide strategic peeks and panoramic views from every floor.
