About the Developer
The Developer was CLB Partners and the Architects were Page Southerland Page & Lawrence W. Speck Associates.

Austin City Lofts has a true loft finish; you can expect tall ceilings (some of the upper unit floor plans have 20 foot ceilings). The lofts have concrete floors, concrete ceilings, exposed metal duct work and floor to ceiling windows. Since these were completed in 2004, many of the owners have subsequently updated or remodeled the lofts, so when one comes on the market for sale, you really don’t know what to expect as far as the cabinets, countertops, appliances, and bathroom finishes are concerned, until you go in and see for yourself. Every loft has a private balcony, and most are fairly generous in size.
The building has a total of 14 floors, topping out at a max height of 176 ft. There are 82 lofts in total, consisting of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom lofts. The lofts are very spacious, with the smallest 1 bedroom starting at 1,009 sq ft. Floor plans go up to over 3,000 sq ft. If you are looking for large open spaces, this would be a very interesting choice
