AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Austin-based firm Urbanspace Real Estate + Interiors, who has helped shape the downtown Austin skyline for over 20 years, has announced their newest endeavor - The Modern Austin Residences. The Modern will make its mark on the Austin skyline standing at 55 stories with 345 market-rate residences. The condominium tower address, at 610 Davis, is located in the Rainey Neighborhood.
Urbanspace, known as the market leader in condo tower sales and marketing in Austin, is ready for the opportunity to be in the driver's seat for this tower. After working with thousands of condo buyers over the past two decades and consulting on numerous towers, CEO & Founder Kevin Burns has put together what he referred to as an “Austin Dream Team” of condo design, construction, and sales experts.
Brad Nelsen of Nelsen Partners who will be serving as the design architect commented, “The design of the Modern has led us through a unique and extremely detailed process of collaboration. Rarely do we have a client/developer that shares the same level of passion and thoughtfulness on every detail as does our team. The result is a collaboration of architecture and interior design that has produced the pinnacle of residential building design in Austin.”
Scott Tomhave, Vice President, Austin Area Manager at Flintco, the general contractor of the building noted, “We are excited to be working alongside Urbanspace during preconstruction for The Modern – our third high rise condominium project together in downtown Austin. They’ve assembled an amazing team of best-in-class design professionals who are creating an environment that will resonate with urban lifestyle buyers.”
Brandon Townsend, Associate Principal with Page/ , the firm serving as the architect of record, added, “We are excited to join Nelsen Partners, Flintco and the rest of the talented consultant team to deliver The Modern as part of the changing Austin skyline. Careful consideration has been given to every aspect of the project. From locating the pool deck for ample sunlight and fantastic views; to the thoughtful finishes within the unit, The Modern will redefine classic design with timeless elegance.”
Notable towers Urbanspace has represented in Austin include Seaholm Residences, during which the entire building was reserved within 3 days The Independent was 97% reserved in the first month of sales and was 99% under contract when the first homes closed. Urbanspace is currently selling 44 East Ave, which is over 90% under contract, with move-ins beginning next summer.
Sales for The Modern will commence Q1 2022, with groundbreaking scheduled for late March of next year. Interested parties can register their interest ahead of time to take advantage of pre-construction pricing at MODERNAUSTINRESIDENCES.COM. Urbanspace will also serve as the exclusive sales and marketing brokerage for the vertical community.
Urbanspace started its sales and marketing experience over 15 years ago with Milago, also located in the Rainey District. The Urbanspace team is excited about how the neighborhood has transformed and is proud to have played a role in it. Burns noted, "Bringing a concentration of residents to the neighborhood that had a vested interest is part of the reason that Rainey Street began to change. The Rainey District now has the best of both worlds, the connectivity to nature, the vibrant nightlife and culinary scene and the walkability to the business district. Rainey is now going through the next phase of evolution with developments such as The Modern Austin Residences and 44 East Ave, which materially enhance the neighborhood's fabric while helping city-wide issues by bringing additional housing to the urban core.”
Urbanspace, a long-time supporter of local charitable organizations such as Waterloo Greenway, The Trail Foundation, and the Parks Foundation, is contributing $350,000 to the Trail Foundation, helping fund the programming at Waller Beach Park for the next decade, and worked with Austin’s Great Streets Program to enhance the pedestrian experience around their site as part of their development FAR allowance. In addition, there will be 20 onsite affordable housing units within the community plus over one million contributed to the affordable housing foundation.
While designing The Modern Austin Residences, Burns was mindful to retain elements of the site that patrons have enjoyed. Container Bar Owner Bridget Dunlap, behind Clive Bar and Lustre Pearl, both adjacent to The Modern Austin Residences, will take the basement hospitality space for her next concept. "Container Bar had a good run, but I'm excited for what's next. 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." Urbanspace's Hospitality arm of the company will also open a concept on the ground floor similar to their first hospitality venture, Codependent Cocktails + Coffee, located on the ground floor of The Independent.
