Renowned as the leader in condominium sales and marketing in Austin, Urbanspace is ready for the opportunity to take the driver’s seat for this tower. After working with thousands of condo buyers over the past two decades and advising on numerous towers, CEO and Founder Kevin Burns has assembled what he called the Austin Dream Team of condominium design, construction and sales professionals.

Brad Nelsen of Nelsen Partners, who will serve as the design architect, commented, “The design of the Modern took us through a unique and extremely detailed process of collaboration. We rarely have a customer / developer who shares the same passion and care with every detail as our team. The result is a collaboration between architecture and interior design that has brought about the pinnacle of residential design in Austin. “

Scott Tomhave, Vice President, Austin Area Manager at Flintco, the general contractor for the building, said, “We are excited to be working with Urbanspace on the pre-build for The Modern – our third joint high-rise condominium project in downtown Austin. They have put together a great team of world-class design professionals who create an environment that will appeal to urban lifestyle buyers. “

Brandon Townsend, Associate Principal at Page /, the firm serving as the Architect of Record, added, “We are excited to join The Modern with Nelsen Partners, Flintco and the rest of the talented team of consultants as part of the changing Austin skyline present. Every aspect of the project has been carefully considered. From the positioning of the pool deck for plenty of sunlight and fantastic views; In addition to the well thought-out surfaces within the unit, The Modern will redefine classic design with timeless elegance. “

Notable towers that Urbanspace has represented in Austin include Seaholm Residences, where the entire building was reserved within 3 days. The Independent was 97% reserved in its first month of sales and 99% under contract when the first homes closed. Urbanspace is currently selling 44 East Ave, which is over 90% under contract, moving in next summer.

The Modern will start selling in the first quarter of 2022, with the groundbreaking scheduled for the end of March next year. Interested parties can register their interest early in order to take advantage of the pre-construction prices at MODERNAUSTINRESIDENCES.COM. Urbanspace will also be the exclusive sales and marketing broker for the vertical community.

Urbanspace began its sales and marketing experience over 15 years ago with Milago, also in the Rainey district. The Urbanspace team is thrilled to see how the neighborhood has changed and is proud to have contributed to it. Burns noted, “The concentration of residents in the neighborhood who had a particular interest is one of the reasons Rainey Street began to change scene and the passability of the business district. Rainey is now going through the next phase of development with developments like The Modern Austin Residences and 44 East Ave, which significantly improve the fabric of the neighborhood while also helping city-wide problems by adding additional living space to the urban core. “

Urbanspace, a long-time supporter of local charities such as Waterloo Greenway, The Trail Foundation, and the Parks Foundation, is donating $ 350,000 to the Trail Foundation, helping fund the Waller Beach Park program for the next decade, and partnering with Austin’s Great Streets program to improve the pedestrian experience around their location as part of their FAR development grant. In addition, there will be 20 affordable on-site housing units in the community and over a million that will be paid into the Affordable Housing Foundation.

When designing The Modern Austin Residences, Burns made sure to keep elements of the website that guests liked. Container Bar owner Bridget Dunlap, behind Clive Bar and Luster Pearl, both next to The Modern Austin Residences, will use the guest room in the basement for their next concept. “Container Bar has had a good run, but I’m excited to see what’s next. This next concept will fill a niche Austin misses in the music / hospitality scene and I’m glad to have the opportunity to stay in our place. “Urbanspace’s hospitality arm will also open a concept on the ground floor similar to that of its first hospitality company, Codependent Cocktails + Coffee, on the ground floor of The Independent.
