Austin, Texas/300,000 square feet
Barton Place is a six-story multi-building condominium complex located just south of downtown Austin near Zilker Park and Barton Springs. The six condominium buildings rest on top of a 2-level underground parking structure, containing 607 parking spaces for condominium residents and patrons of two nearby restaurants.
Barton Place offers a unique lifestyle opportunity due to its park side location and the pedestrian connection across the site that links restaurant row on Barton Springs Road with the Town Lake Hike and Bike Trail. The many restaurants, bars, coffee shops and parks within a comfortable walking distance make this one of the most desirable residential sites in Austin.
The architecture is a modern interpretation of the local vernacular that capitalizes on 360 degree views of downtown, Town Lake, and Zilker Park. The project is clustered around an elevated plaza built on top of the parking garage that is lushly landscaped with native plants, as well as a massive, 100 foot pecan tree at the heart of the project. In keeping with the environmentally conscious local culture, the project will seek a rating with the Austin green building program, and relocate a number of outstanding trees to the nearby park.
