Austin Proper Residences will include 100 condo units, the price of which remain undisclosed for now. The units will range from 850 square feet to 2,800 square feet, and penthouses from 3,300 square feet to 6,000 square feet. The residences are part of a 35-floor development that also includes the 250-room Austin Proper Hotel.

The project will include restaurants and a coffee shop, all of which will be run by the McGuire Moorman Hospitality Group. That group’s restaurants also include Lambert’s, Perla’s, Elizabeth Street Café, and Clark’s Oyster Bar.
