The project is a 466-bed private student housing development 2 blocks from the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. The half-acre, high-density site will consist of studio, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 bedroom apartments ranging from 554 square feet to 1,546 square feet. The 466 beds will be housed in a 16-story high-rise structure with 4 levels of parking below grade. It will contain 167,437 square feet of rentable space.
The project is located about 0.2 miles to the west edge and 0.4 miles to the center of campus. Students will be able to walk or ride their bicycles to school. The Austin CapMETRO system provides multiple bus routes that stop nearby, offering convenient access to the Central Business District and the Downtown Entertainment District, each just over a mile away. It is within minutes of Shoal Creek, a natural conservancy with multiple hiking and biking trails, allowing pedestrian access to the natural amenity of Lady Bird Lake.
The University of Texas at Austin, with 51,000 enrolled students, is the flagship institution of the University of Texas. Its ongoing investment program includes construction of new research, educational and administrative facilities for the Dell Medical School, Medical District Master Plan, McCombs Business School and the Engineering Education and Research Center.
