AUSTIN | The Catherine - 214 Barton Springs Rd. | 19 fl | U/C

Hunt breaks ground on Austin apartment tower



Quote:
Affiliates of Hunt Companies Inc. and StreetLights Residential will build a new high-rise luxury apartment tower in Austin. The 19-story glass and brick tower will go up at 214 Barton Springs Rd.

The project owner is SLR Residential at Barton Springs, whose members are Hunt Development Group LLC, Hunt Barton Springs, both affiliates of Hunt Companies Inc., and SLR Residential at Barton Springs LLC, an affiliate of StreetLights Residential.

The property will offer panoramic views of Austin, and 300 apartment homes with high-design elements modeled after a boutique hotel. The apartments will average 900 square feet in size.

[...]

Expected to open in August 2014, the tower will feature a boutique hotel-style lobby with conversation areas and coffee bar, resort-style pool deck and spacious fitness center, and a rooftop lounge.

Development spurring across water from City Hall



Quote:
February 07, 2013

The paved no man’s land that occupied the sprawling parking lot next to the former Chamber of Commerce building on the south shore across from downtown Austin is no more.

The Austin Business Journal provides a first look at renderings for the $68 million, 300-unit StreetLights at Barton Springs apartment building taking some of the space and under construction now. Adjacent to the site, AustinTowers has learned the Hyatt Town Lake is removing a substantial amount of surface parking, and instead building a seven-story parking garage and amenities behind the Sherry Matthews building.

At 19 stories, the apartment project will eclipse the Hyatt hotel by about 25 feet. (For reference sake, the Chamber building is seven stories).

This residential project is next iteration of the Aquaterra condominium project, which fell victim to the lending withdraw of the 2008 recession, re-envisioned as apartments. Dallas-based StreetLights Residential is developing the Barton Springs project and the skeleton should start rising in a few months, with completion in late summer next year.

The new project is of similar scope to the former Aquaterra vision, both at about 200 Feet, and like 7 Rio – another condo project that died and was reborn as apartments – local architect Brett Rhode is the designer of both buildings. Aquaterra’s first seven floors were parking garage, and its unknown if that carried through in the current design.

For those who don't know. "Brownstone on the Lake" and "The Catherine" are being built right next to each other, further increasing the density south of the river.

High profile lakeside apartment project ramps up construction



Quote:
The high-rise apartment community under construction near South Congress Avenue and Barton Springs Road has been rebranded as The Catherine.

The 19-story building under construction just to the south of the Hyatt Regency Austin is a partnership between the Hunt Cos. Inc. of El Paso and SLR Residential, an affiliate of StreetLights Residential of Dallas.

The project, which has been a long time in the works, is now at the fifth floor of construction, and the first phase will be delivered about a year from now, according to Jim Dobbie, senior vice president of development for Hunt’s southwest division.

The partnership acquired the site at 214 Barton Springs Road in December 2012 from Crescent Resources LLC, which had planned to build condominiums dubbed, “Aquaterra” since 2006.
