70 Rainey Street On The Rise

70 Rainey Street is quickly rising in the Austin skyline. The ten-story podium has been poured and the twisting columns are going in now. The 34-story residential tower's twist will give all 164 condos panoramic views of the Colorado River, the downtown skyline and the Hill Country beyond. Predominately sheathed in glass on the upper levels, materials like wood, concrete and oxidized steel add a tactile dimension at pedestrian levels where porches and terraces encourage direct interaction with the street. Rich gardens on the amenity levels invite that laid-back lifestyle Austin is known for while also, along with suspended planters on the garage facades, linking the building directly the lush adjacent parkland.
