Text description provided by the architects.
RISE on 8th is a 22-story, 200-unit apartment tower in Downtown Austin. Amenities include a rooftop pool, fitness center and dog park, along with one floor of lobby and leasing space. The mid-rise tower is located on a steep hillside at the northern edge of Austin’s flourishing high rise residential district.
Ground level live-work apartments are included at both street frontages.
As the first project built under the City of Austin Downtown Density Bonus program, the project illustrates the difficulty of siting a large complex building on an urban site with significant zoning and dimensional constraints. The building is intended to provide an elegant backdrop to several historic buildings in the area..
