A 38-story, Class A mixed-use residential tower with 439 apartment units.
Project Start: January 2014
Project Completion: September 2016
OverviewDeveloped by High Street Residential, Northshore is a 38-story, mixed-use tower consisting of predominantly for-rent luxury multifamily units on one of the last large undeveloped sites on the shores of Lady Bird Lake. Northshore consists of 439 apartment units, 24,017 square feet of boutique office space, and 28,165 square feet of retail/restaurant space to the highly successful and sought-after southwest corner of downtown Austin.
Located at the western end of the 2nd Street District and the eastern end of the Seaholm District, the building is situated within walking distance of the Moody Theatre, Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, the Central Library, Austin Music Hall, the Austin Ballet, and many of the City’s top restaurants. Additionally, Northshore is ideally located on the shores of Lady Bird Lake with immediate access to Austin’s famed “hike and bike trail” which sees more than 10,000 individual trips (biking/running/walking) per day.
Opportunity, Solutions & OutcomesAs Austin's population growth continued to swell, TCC recognized Austin’s downtown market fundamentals suggesting the ability to deliver a large, luxury multifamily development. In accordance with TCC's master development agreement with the City of Austin, the project team worked to amenetize the project by adding opportunities for vibrant retail at the development's base.
In February 2014, the development team commenced the first phase of construction, which included public streets and utilities, including the extension of both 2nd and Nueces Streets. These extensions completed the connectivity from the adjacent 2nd Street District to the Central Library and the Seaholm District.
Northshore's first units were delivered in March 2016 and were met with significant demand from the market. The building's high-class design and extensive amenities have made it a premier apartment building in Austin for a wide range of residents. Additionally, Northshore's commercial space quickly stabilized with leases to some of the 2nd Street District's most popular tenants.
