The first condo high-rise announced since 2007 will be downtown Austin’s Seaholm condos. Officially called the Seaholm Residences, the style of the condos are planned to be “industrial chic” and include the expected bundle of highrise common area amenities, including and exercise and conference rooms, pool, and gym.
280 Units are scheduled for completion in 2015.
- Studios begin at $270k
- 1bds begin at $300k+
- 2bds begin at $450k+
- 3bds begin at $1.1mm+
We’ve speculated for years about when the next condo high-rise would be announced in downtown. Seaholm was always a leading contender, in addition to thinking that an apartment building would convert. The latter option not as viable because these days it’s easier to just sell the whole apartment building.
The building is oriented lengthwise to the north and south, much like 360 condos. We haven’t seen floor plans, but we expect units with southern facing glass towards the lake to be priced higher, relative to the rest.
***As of 10/29/13 all 280 units have been reserved and buyers are being placed on a wait list. I’ll be updating downtown buyers as new information is released, contact me here to get updates.
