Condo to be city’s tallest building

Tuesday, April 14, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano

At 685 feet, the Independent is slated to be the new tallest building in Austin. The 58-story project will feature 370 condo residences in a 950,000 square-foot development located at the corner of West Third Street and West Avenue. In 2010, the City of Austin and Constructive Ventures (co-founded in 2004 by Perry Lorenz and Larry Warshaw) entered into a master development agreement for the 1.7-acre site, which is the former location of the Austin Energy Control Center. Condos in the Independent will range in price from mid-$300,000 to more than $3 million. Units will be 675 to 3,485 square feet each.
