That website appears to be new, and we need a thread for this in the Austin subforum. There is a thread for this project in the main highrise proposal section, but that thread got buried and is hard to find.

I could have sworn we did have a thread for it here. I started one in the main section with this business journal article and rendering.

Lee ready to tackle Rainey tower

Jan Buchholz
Staff Writer-
Austin Business Journal

Austin developer Robert Lee is gaining momentum in the hot infill business and is about to embark on his most ambitious project yet — a $100 million, 35-story apartment complex that will be built around the corner from SkyHouse Austin, the glitzy new apartment complex recently completed by Atlanta-based Novare Group in the Rainey Street District.

Oh, you beat me to it. By the way, if you're having trouble finding a thread in that section, you can use the thread finder links at the top left. There's Thread/Thread Starter. The "Thread Starter" link will index all the threads in alphabetical order according to who started them. The "Thread" link will list all the threads in alphabetical order by their title. That's why it helps to put the city's name at the beginning of those threads so it'll alphabetize by city.

Here's the Austin Business Journal article when this project was first announced:

The 48 East Avenue project probably won’t break ground until 2016, but the developers feel the timing will be right for the next cycle of housing needs. Austin-based KBGE civil engineering is handling the site design and city development processes.

Land Development and Construction operates its own construction and management companies.

“This is all going to happen. It’s just not going to happen tomorrow,” Lee said.
If it doesn't break ground until 2016, this thread might get buried, too, but it will at least be easier to find here in our subforum, (when news warrants additonal postings) rather than in the subforum for all the proposed projects everywhere.

This one would be right across the street from Lambie Cove Residential that Hill Country started a thread on. It'd be great to get both of these towers built there. Then I'd definitely agree with LoneStarMike's "Little Vancouver" nickname for the area. Hope this happens!

Mr. Lee is a great guy and a visionary. However, he is smart and calculated. Having said that, he will reassess the housing situation in 2016 and if it is a bit too risky with all the product in the current pipeline, he will wait until 2017, 2018 or later to develop this project (if at all).

Also, don't get your immediate hopes up regarding the possible Lambie St. project. I believe this is another attempt to maximize entitlements to the site and then sell it to someone as a future development opportunity. Larry Nelson tried this back in 2008.

BTW, it's "Lambie Street." Lambie Cove does not exist.

Lambie Cove was what the developer called the combined Lambie Street parcels being used for the project in the Planning Commission presentation.

Yeah, I was just going off of the other thread. Hope these happen nonetheless. :)

A site Plan was filed today. It includes office as well as residential.

Not a bad idea! Mix some class-a office in with all the residential, lodging, entertainment and cultural. I like the concept. Hope it makes the tower taller. Hee, hee.

New renderings featuring a different design have surfaced online.

I am #living for this design. #yaaaaaaasqween!

The ATX Aug 11, 2015 12:45 AM

Great find Urbannizer! If the office component mentioned in the site plan is included in these renderings it appears to be blended in with the residential levels rather than the usual stacking. It does appear to be a couple floors shorter though. But the design makes up for that.

KevinFromTexas Aug 11, 2015 1:00 AM

That's awesome. That is so much better than the old design. Much more deserving of its location.

It looks to be around 360 feet or so. Windsor on the Lake is 339 feet, and Skyhouse is 264 feet.

drummer Aug 11, 2015 1:21 AM

That will break up the condo-building with nothing but balconies feel of the area, so that's good too. It's a lot more unique than some of the others in the area. I like it.

lzppjb Aug 11, 2015 1:35 AM

I really like this.

the Genral Aug 11, 2015 3:18 AM

Yep, modern, sleek, glassy, classy, and far better than the earlier balcony heavy version. Build it please.

Austinite101 Aug 11, 2015 4:42 AM

Ugh, I love this design but if this tower was only 10 stories taller it would look so so sexy. I know, I know. If I had a dollar for every time someone said that on this forum... :yes:

tie_guy Aug 11, 2015 12:45 PM

Love the new design!! UGHHH *drool*

Looks like something out of Vancouver. Actually, it reminds me of 3344 Peachtree in Atlanta. I need this to come to fruition nooow! ^_^
