"The owner had a clear vision to redevelop an outdated office with onsite parking to a hyper-urban development,” said Shelly Mitchell, who is a vice president at Pape-Dawson engineers and coordinated entitlement on the project, in a release.
Aimed at residents dedicated to "car-free commuting," Capitol Quarters will be situated near a bike path with access to Shoal Creek and Lady Bird Lake.
The project also is also designed for low environmental impact, with a battery backup rather than a traditional generator, and plans for rainwater harvesting tanks.
Located at 1108 Nueces St., Austin, Capitol Quarters is set to be ready for move-in by January 2022. Monthly living costs are estimated at around $1,400 per resident.
