80-Story Austin Tower, Texas’ Tallest, to Start Ascent Next Year
Wilson Capital’s plan to redevelop the Avenue Lofts site, just got more ambitious. The multifamily residential building planned for the nearly one-acre property at 410 East Fifth Street is set to rise 80 floors, to a total height of 1,035 feet. That would make the Wilson Tower project the new tallest tower in Texas upon completion, exceeding the height of the Waterline project currently under construction a few blocks away. It was originally designed to be 54 stories.
Wilson Tower is described by its developer as a signature 450-unit apartment building with residences ranging from studios to 3 and 4-bedroom penthouses…designed by the Austin office of global architecture firm HKS Inc.
Wilson Tower is set to offer four floors of resident amenities including a pool deck, movie theater, and cocktail lounge. The building also plans an entire floor dedicated to pets, including grooming services, a playroom, and dog run. The tower’s ground-level streetscape contains a signature restaurant and bar space, plus valet parking for residents. Work is slated to begin in 2023.
