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.
