AUSTIN, TEXAS — Transwestern Development Co. has acquired 1.6 acres in downtown Austin for the development of Block 36, a 263-unit multifamily community. Block 36 will consist primarily of studio units with approximately 14 percent of the units being two-bedroom residences. In addition to having a 3,000-square-foot ground-floor restaurant space, the community will offer amenities such as a pool, fitness center, clubroom, business lounge and an elevated courtyard with fire pits. Wilder Belshaw, an architecture firm with offices in the Dallas and Austin area, is handling design of the project, and Comerica Bank is providing construction financing. Transwestern expects to break ground on the property in January 2019 and deliver it during the first half of 2020.
