In the background are cranes for the U.T. conference center.

  3. How about some more... 32-story condo may spring up downtown From the Austin American-Statesman http://www.statesman.com/business/co...0downtown.html DOWNTOWN AUSTIN Condo high-rise could be Katz's Deli neighbor CLB Partners plans 32-story project downtown at West Seventh and Rio Grande. By Shonda Novak AMERICAN-STATESMAN STAFF Thursday, October 19, 2006 CLB Partners plans to build a 32-story condominium high-rise at West Seventh and Rio Grande streets, extending the downtown residential development boom. Pending approvals from the city, the project could get underway next spring, with its 160 units ready for residents in late 2008, said Bobby Nail, a partner in CLB's Austin office. The building will be designed by the Austin-based architectural firm of Rhode:Hurt. The firm also is designing CLB's six-story Bridges on the Park project, under construction at Lamar Boulevard and Riverside Drive. Brett Rhode, one of Rhode:Hurt's founding principals, also was involved in the design of CLB's Austin City Lofts on West Fifth Street. The new project would be built at the southeast corner of West Seventh and Rio Grande, behind Katz's Deli. A one-story building with several short-term office tenants would be razed to make way for the high-rise. The project would be built around the Ranch 616 restaurant. "I always build around my favorite restaurants," Nail said. Bridges on the Park wraps around the former Paggi House, which is being renovated and will reopen early next year as a new high-end restaurant and wine bar. Prices are expected to start in the low $300,000s, with the largest units topping $4 million. Nail said the parking garage will be built in the part of the site where height is limited to protect views of the state Capitol.

  5. Hotel/condo project has an Austin attitude Moniker of upscale Hotel Van Zandt reflects the names and notes of Texas. By Shonda Novak AMERICAN-STATESMAN STAFF Saturday, September 09, 2006 Developers plan to start work by the end of the year on the Hotel Van Zandt, a 29-story boutique hotel with 55 luxury condominiums at Red River and Davis streets, part of an emerging wave of high-rise residential and hotel projects on downtown's eastern edge. Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, based in San Francisco, will manage the hotel, a $100 million project being developed by JMI Realty LLC of San Diego. The hotel will have 290 rooms, a 5,000-square-foot outdoor deck, a ballroom and a 100-seat restaurant, said Greg Clay, senior vice president of JMI. The condominiums will range in price from $500,000 for the smallest units, 1,450 square feet, to more than $2 million for 5,000-square-foot units. They'll have a separate entrance and a private pool. ......................................... The Van Zandt will be adjacent to the Shore, a 22-story condominium project already under construction by High Street Residential, an arm of Trammell Crow Co. Nearby, Constellation Properties plans to build a $250 million luxury condominium and hotel project on three acres at Red River and East Cesar Chavez streets. "Downtown Austin is really heating up," said Clay, the JMI executive. "The residential market downtown is really strong, as is the hotel market. Because our project includes both of these uses, we feel really good about it."
