Austin’s LV Collective to Go Vertical on 80 Rainey
LV Collective, formerly Lincoln Ventures, is days away from starting work on 80 Rainey, a 49-story, 550-foot-tall, 644-unit residential tower at 80 Rainey St in Austin. Apartments will range from studios to 3-bedroom units, with resident perks including an amenity deck stretching between the 11th and 13th floors offering features like a co-working space, plus a rooftop pool and lounge on the top floor — and an estimated 20 or more units will be designated as affordable housing, a requirement of the towns Downtown Density Bonus Program.
With an 11th-floor rooftop bar, a basement speakeasy, a coffee and cocktail lounge, the Rainey 80 will offer up multiple food and beverage options. Altogether, the project currently anticipates 6,023 square feet of restaurant space and 6,778 square feet of bar space.
Construction is planned to end in 2025. The 49-story project with a number of public-facing features, includes the preservation of two historic bungalows currently occupying its site.
