500+ Residential Units Underway Just South of Lady Bird Lake

September 16, 2013 by Editor

Two large residential projects are rising just south of Lady Brid Lake. The Catherine (214 Barton Springs) and Broadstone at the Lake (422 W. Riverside) are separate projects, but under construction simultaneously right next door to one another.

Broadstone On The Lake and The Catherine Site Plan

The Catherine broke ground in January and is currently on the third of nineteen levels:

The 300-unit project is a joint venture of Streetlights Residential & Hunt Companies, and was designed by Austin-based Rhode Partners.

Just next door at the former RunTex site, foundation work is underway for Alliance Residential‘s Broadstone at the Lake.  It will be a smaller scale development than its taller neighbor, but the 6-story building will still include more than 200 rental units.  Construction is set to finish late next year.

What do you think of the influx of new apartment units under construction in Austin? Leave a comment below!
