While many of DAB’s friends will be sad to see Bail Bonds (777-7777) office go [sarcasm], we are interested in what is planned to replace it: 908 Nueces Condominiums.
908 Nueces LLC purchased the site in July. The address for 908 Nueces LLC on the deed records matches up to several entities, but it looks like the management of 908 Nueces LLC is a company called Scotia Western States Housing LLC, based in Tucson.
Through a little research, we’ve confirmed that a builder in Tucson, A.F. Sterling Homes, will be the company developing this project. While the company owns some single family rentals in Austin , this project will mark their first foray into developing dense housing in Austin.
Perales Engineering, who posted the below rendering of the project on their FB page in September, will be working with Urban Foundry Architecture on the project.
Here’s what we know so far:
- Address = 908 Nueces
- Lot = 0.29 Acres (~12,800 sf)
- Proposed structure = (~34,000) sf
- Number of stories = 4 + 1 level of parking
- Number of residences = 32
I know nothing about the project, but Sterling may be the best, most energy-efficient builder in Tucson. Some of their housing is affordable, too. Found your story researching condo activity in TX for National Condo Advisors.
