The Linden, a 28-story residential tower in Austin's Museum District blocks north of the state Capitol, broke ground Sept. 15.
Located at 313 W. 17th St., Austin, The Linden will feature a total of 117 one- to three-bedroom units alongside several two-story penthouses. Street-level community amenities are also included in the project plan from architect Rhode Partners, developer Reger Holdings and contractor Bartlett Cocke.
The Linden's September groundbreaking followed the demolition of the former William Gammon Insurance building at 17th and Guadalupe streets. The tower's construction follows on the heels of a recent Rhode Partners addition to Austin's skyline, The Independent, and is set to open in late summer 2023.
“We are honored to play a valuable role in shaping Austin's burgeoning Museum District with our design for The Linden. Not only will the building interact with and make a positive contribution to the area, particularly at the street level, but it will also serve as an important hallmark for vibrant urban life in Austin," Rhode Founding Director Brett Rhode said in a statement.
Amenities for future residents of the Linden include a lap pool and an adjacent bar, a fitness center with a sauna, and a public art gallery set to feature a rotating selection of work from local creatives. Outdoor dining and lounge areas are also included in the project plan. www.thelinden.com
