From The Avenue:
Located on the corner of Congress Avenue and 8th Street, The Avenue is destined to become the urban epicenter where residents, employees, businesses, and community interests come together to live within a vibrant downtown environment. The Avenue is a car-free mixed-use development designed from the ground up for those who enjoy a walkable city, a bike ride to work, and the cultural benefits of living in the heart of downtown. The 135 residential rental units will be full one and two-bedroom apartments that range from 420 to 970 square feet.
The Avenue will offer five floors of contemporary office space, a ground floor restaurant, and a basement cocktail lounge. Additional amenities for residents will include a pool deck and roof terrace on the 31st floor, a fitness center, and community room.
The development team has been working closely with the nonprofit organization Austin Theatre Alliance to ensure the preservation of the neighboring Paramount and Stateside Theatres. The Avenue development will be providing space for the theatre’s operational offices, classrooms, and green rooms, freeing up much needed capacity at both, the Stateside and Paramount, in turn allowing for future improvements to the theatres.
