KRDB’s “SOL 2.0” condos coming soon
A innovative retail and condo mixed used development focused on sustainability is in the works on across the street from the State Cemetery, east of I-35, at the intersection of MLK Jr. Blvd and Leona St.
This will be KRDB’s next iteration of its first Solutions Oriented Living — SOL — sustainable development built in 2012 three miles east from downtown. That 40-unit, $10 million project has gathered a lot of good praise, including from the New York Times.
The next iteration — simply called the “MLK Mixed Use Project” — will be a 25,000 square foot project on a half acre plot. The unit specs and prices have not been released yet, but we’re expecting news to be forthcoming now that the project is getting underway.
The land in question is currently occupied by a single-story home, which by the looks of it has been decline, and this project looks like a quality build. As East Austin develops, its important for innovative projects like this to continue to take root, and I’m excited to see the outcome.
Two townhouse condo developments spouting on E. 12th and E. 7th
Almost 70 condominium units are in the pipeline at two separate developments taking root at E. 12th and Walnut, and E. 7th and Chicon.
The Lofts at 12th Street consist of a 27-unit luxury condos in a five story building brought to bear by NAPA Ventures, a prototypical Texas real estate investment company. No details have been announced on the size or specs yet.
A short jog south, from Lofts, the Eastline — developed by PSW Real Estate — will consist of 48 townhome style residences on an elevated courtyard above garage parking and 5,000 sq. ft. of first floor retail space. The project features 1-2 bed units, and in the neighborhood of 1,000+-square-feet. Prices points have not been released yet.
New office and retail near I-35 with eye on design
A 128,0000-square-foot commercial/office building with underground parking is moving forward to fill a surface lot, just east of I-35 at 901 E. Sixth Street.
The project, being constructed by Austin Fairchild Management Company, will go in just opposite the 5-story residential building at 900 E. Sixth Street. At 5-stories itself, the commercial building will create quite a gateway heading from downtown to East Sixth.
No renderings have been released, but the designers are local firms Thoughtbarn and Delineate Studio, who also designed the Fair Market project developed by Austin Fairchild. Delineate Studios are also the creative minds behind Fourth&, a micro-loft condo development at Fourth & Chicon.
