Austin Luxury Condo Tower Tops Out

Fifth & West boasts 315-degree vistas, due to its unconventional triangular shape and location within the Capitol View Corridor. It is anticipated for delivery later this year.

Fifth & West Residences, Austin’s 39-story luxury tower currently under construction, has nearly topped out as its delivery date inches closer. The iconic triangular-shaped residential project is being marketed as “built in Austin by Austinites, whose roots run deep in Texas.”

“Our purchasers are thrilled with the topping-out milestone,” said Niki Piersall, vice president of McWilliams Ballard, which handles sales for the development, in prepared remarks. “Touring owners and prospective buyers through the building allows them to take in expansive Hill Country and downtown views and get immersed in the only brand-new luxury downtown condominium that will be move-in ready this year.”

The condominium tower is located at 501 West Ave., southwest of the state capitol in downtown Austin. Prospective residents can choose from one- to four-bedroom layouts, each featuring expansive windows, spacious closets and pantries. The condominium tower is an exclusive low-density (154 residences) structure, with no attachment to hotel, retail or other commercial spaces and already almost 70 percent occupied.

Downtown living reimagined

Fifth & West is the product of a collaboration between the developer Riverside Resources, GDA Architects, Michael Hsu Office of Architecture and The Carlyle Group, and reimagines the idea of downtown luxury living. Resident amenities include yoga and fitness studios, 24-hour concierge service, expansive pet amenity space, conference space, resident lounge and sky deck. In addition, thanks to the building’s triangular shape and location within the Capitol View Corridor—a collection of 30 protected views of the historic Texas State Capitol— Fifth & West also offers 315-degree vistas.

“Leaning a high-rise residence strongly in the direction of the homeowner,” was the guiding principle of Michael Hsu Office of Architecture for the tower’s interior design. Residents and their guests can choose the closeness or distance they need between themselves and their neighbors. Moreover, the materials used are natural and include woodwork, brass details, marble walls, quartz countertops and white oak flooring.
