The newest high-rise coming to Austin’s Rainey Street District has made the move from renderings to reality.
Developers have officially filed site plans for 48 East confirming a 35-story, 246-unit apartment building at 48 East Avenue, which will deliver protected views of the rising and setting sun.
Specifically, the project will have:
- 169 x 1-bedroom units
- 64 x 2-bedroom units
- 6 x 3-bedroom units
- 11,250 square feet of ground floor retail
All-in-all we’re looking at about 267,750 square feet of development. No word yet on when ground will break or units will become available for early reservation.
A couple of weeks ago, Austin Towers tipped you off that the design of the building had gone from “blah” to “bam” after the developer switched architects to STG Design.
The newly filed architectural plans confirm that the “bam” design is locked in, and are rather striking. In a stroke of marketing genius, the building will look the best when driving by caught in traffic on I-35.
While more details emerge about 48 East, the “other” Rainey Street District tower, 70 Rainey, is still expected to happen.
