Seaholm Website Updated With New Renderings

Update: Seaholm will have condos for sale

The latest aerial perspective rendering of Downtown Austin’s Seaholm redevelopment hints at a 27 story building.  Admittedly, this has been off my radar for a little while. The project design has gone through multiple iterations but is still expected to host residential condos for sale in addition to a hotel and retail.  I’m pretty enamored with the latest design.  It shows a variety of uses, building heights, and a great park-like lawn.  

Part of the site is encumbered by a Capitol View Corridor.  As shown, the new high rise would chew into the views of 360 Condos residents with units facing southwest.  I suspect that’s trivial though, considering the positive lifestyle impact the Seaholm development will bring to the area.

The website indicates there are “Only 80 upscale condos & penthouses… perched atop the ultra chic boutique Seaholm Plaza Hotel, the condos will have protected views over the lake, the hill country & downtown. All will be luxuriously appointed with high-end finishes and will include the full use of the hotel services including spa, concierge, room service & housekeeping.”

Back in January, the Statesman provided a nice interactive map of the entire redeveloping “Seaholm District”.  It’s worth checking out again.

  1. any idea on when construction is going to begin on the hotel or an expected completion date?

    At the plaza lofts, the W wiped out much of my long range view to the south, but I loved it. The point of living downtown is big buildings. Now I look at a big building and I like it. If I wanted a long range vista, I would have stayed in my old house overlooking the hill country.

    Except, perhaps, for those 360 Condo residents who will be losing their view … and of course, the loss of monetary value that goes with the loss of view..
