Austin Modern Lofts to Build Mixed-Use Project Across from Mueller Control Tower

September 29, 2017

Amid the bustling growth at Mueller, Austin Modern Lofts has been selected to build the next mixed-use residential and retail development near Mueller’s former control tower, at the northwest corner of Berkman Drive and Tom Miller Street.

Beginning in early 2018, Austin Modern Lofts will break ground on 91 for-sale residential units, which will include a collection of 35 attached condos in a mixed-use building, with approximately 6,000 square feet of retail space on the ground floor, along with 56 attached, for-sale townhomes, five of which will be shop houses that will also include first-floor commercial space with two stories of living space above.

“We’re pleased to welcome a new homebuilder who appreciates Mueller’s goal for more dense and diverse home products that appeal to a wide variety of homebuyers,” said Ken Blaker, Senior Vice President of Development at Catellus. “Austin Modern Lofts has a strong reputation and tremendous experience in this type of product. We look forward to seeing this new, thoughtfully designed project join the Mueller community.”

Designed by MWM Design Group, the new spaces will include the following amenities:

  • Condos will be single-level lofts within three-story buildings.
  • 29 of the condo and townhome residences will be included in Mueller’s Ready, Set, Own income-qualifying affordable homes program (21 total units for 80% MFI, eight units for 120% MFI).
  • Some units will have direct views of downtown Austin and the natural setting of Mueller’s Southwest Greenway, with open space and walkways within the project.
  • Buyers can expect modern appointments and finishes in all dwellings, such as:
    • Roof and patio terraces
    • Tall ceilings
    • Contemporary finishes

Once the project is fully designed, Austin Modern Lofts will have home pricing information available. Construction for the project is scheduled to begin by spring of 2018, with the first move-ins anticipated by first quarter of 2019, weather permitting.
