Austin | 90 Rainey | 606' | 52-Stories | Proposed


Recommended Posts

These big projects can't keep happening, but  yet they do.  A  site plan was filed this week for a 48-Story residential/hotel project located at 90 Rainey.  This should be another 550' to 600' project.  That seems to be the new height ceiling.  But there is one big negative with this project.  It is replacing the Container Bar in the Rainey St. Entertainment District.

The developer officially announced this project today and released a rendering.  It's about half hotel and half apartments.  They purposely left out a lot of towers in the skyline to make it standout more.  Boo.  Anyway, it gained three floors and will take out two bars on Rainey St.  But the developer stated that he hopes the Container Bar will move into the first floor of this project while the second bar moves into the second floor.  It's the fifth tower of about 600' proposed for the Rainey area.

The Design Commission approved this on Monday.  But since they are going taller than the density bonus allowed, they will also need to get approval from the Planning Commission and City Council.  A lot of new renderings were shown at the Design Commission meeting.  Here are a few, and the link below has more.

Here are some more renderings at street level and of the amenity levels.  The first view is of the side facing Rainey St.  Since the project will take out two bars in the Rainey St. Entertainment District, the developer wants to have three levels of bars as a replacement.

The bungalow bar on the site will not be incorporated into the project as originally planned.  But it appears that the container bar will be.  The Historical Landmark Commission takes up the bungalow Demo at their 02/24 meeting.  Here's the meeting presentation:

My previous post from February was about the Demo of the house turned bar on the site.  It is still not settled.  Last week the Historic Landmark Commission voted to postpone the Demo vote to June by a 6-1 vote.  The Commission said they can't stop the Demo, but they can continue to delay the project just because they don't like it.  The one no vote was from the only Commissioner with common sense who didn't think it was appropriate to delay just to spite the developer.  The Commission can legally delay the vote until sometime in July, which I suspect the A-Holes will do.
