Located in the heart of downtown Austin, this 32-story mixed-use tower includes two separate hotels and residential units within 717,000 square feet as well as 10,000 square feet of retail along street level. Taking inspiration from the local natural context, a limestone façade podium consists of hotel and apartment units while the 344-foot glass and metal tower rises above. Massing of the tower and composition of the façade directly relates to the functional needs of each program. This provides the tower with its stacked massing.

Designed to achieve LEED Silver, a large amenity floor is shared by hotel and residential and includes an outdoor deck, restaurant space, and landscaping.
