Austin Proper Residences

A quiet buzz has started about the Austin Proper Residences.  A combination of Luxury Residential Condos and a Hotel, much like the W Hotel is being built with an estimated completion date in 2018.

Located on the old Greenwater Treatment plant on the Corner of Caesar Chavez and San Antonio Streets in Downtown Austin on the edge of the 2nd St District.  It’s going to be adjacent to the 360 Tower, Independent and the Seaholm Residences.

You can reserve a unit today.  The smallest ones are $681,000, and 981 square feet.  At almost 700 per square foot that’s the highest price for a downtown condo presale on record.

That is a spacious 1-bedroom, and will have finishes picked out by a leading designer, Kelly Wearstler, who is a top 100 interior decorator according to Architectural Digest magazine in 2016.

At the top, both literally and figuratively, the penthouses on the upper floors of this 33-story tower have been selling for up to $8-Million dollars.  These 5-bedroom luxury dwellings on two floors are nearly 6,800 square feet, which is huge, by anyone’s standards.

Just between you and me, when did a building have more than one penthouse?  I may be old school in my thinking that only the top floor of a hi-rise is the Penthouse.  Now, it seems Austin buildings can have multiple penthouses on the top levels of a downtown tower.

As for the amenities, the Austin Proper Residences will have a separate, private entrance from the hotel guests, with a dedicated doorman and concierge planned.

The private resident’s pool,  (the hotel guests will have access to a 2nd pool), should  have amazing views of Ladybird Lake.
