Urban Living


Austin, Texas/280,000 square feet

This apartment development sits on a 4 acre waterfront site located along Lady Bird Lake with spectacular views of downtown Austin. Four contemporary buildings ranging from 5 to 11 stories are clustered around a lushly-landscaped courtyard and pool deck. All parking is located in a below-grade parking structure beneath the residential towers. The 280,000 square feet of construction includes 302 apartments, a fitness center, lounge, and business center. The project is designed to be a model for green development and is seeking a LEED® Silver rating.

Projects like RiverView are part of a growing trend regionally and nationally: the expansion of high density living outside of downtown. This development could have taken almost 80 acres in a typical single family 'tract style' model, but accomplishes the same density on a four-acre site.
