Forestar’s Eleven Welcomes Its First Tenants
- Nov 06, 2013
The southeast corner of East 11th Street and Interstate 35, regarded as a gateway into East Austin, has been changed by the podium-style community developed by Forestar Group Inc. in partnership with Canyon-Johnson Urban Funds. The grand opening ceremony took place a few days ago and the first residents have already moved in.
The community, Eleven, is a four-story wood-framed 257-unit multifamily complex with splendid views over the downtown area. It offers studio, loft, one- and two-bedroom floor plans with striking interiors that feature 10-foot ceilings, oversized windows, 8-foot entry doors, polished concrete or wood flooring, stainless steel appliances and private balconies or patios. A two-story parking garage occupies the ground area. The community amenities include a rooftop deck with resort-style swimming pool, outdoor living area, grilling area and courtyard with bocce ball, chess, yoga area and a dog grooming station. The clubhouse includes a leasing office, fitness center, 24/7 business center and community club room. A fully outfitted bike workshop and car charging stations support the community’s interest in alternative transportation.
The development is located at 811 East 11th Street, which is conveniently close to restaurants, shopping areas and entertainment venues in east and downtown Austin. As sign of commitment to the community, the developer donated $25,000 to the Austin Revitalization Authority for the preservation of the historic Herman Schieffer House.
“Eleven reflects the vision and innovation of Forestar’s multifamily team who, along with our good partners Canyon-Johnson and our construction lender Wells Fargo, have developed a unique urban project that recognizes the importance of community and cultural heritage and thrives in a dynamic present,” says Tom Etheredge, executive vice president at the multifamily operations of Forestar.
The design of Eleven is the work of BGO Architects and Kathy Andrews Interiors took responsibility for the interior design. Alliance Residential manages the property.
