Known for selecting extraordinary locations, Intracorp’s Congress Lofts is positioned along South Congress Avenue, Austin’s most vibrant mixed-use corridor offering locals and weekend visitors the City’s best offering of shopping, dining and live music entertainment. At the South end of the corridor, the burgeoning St. Elmo District has become a center for Austin’s professional creators, makers and entrepreneurs who are honing their craft. Within the eclectic and industrial style neighborhood, Intracorp will introduce a design-driven and architecturally significant collection of quality homes that embraces the history and style of the immediate area by introducing a classic warehouse-style residential loft.
This new community consists of a 5-story loft building of 139 residential homes, 9 Live/Work storefronts, and 1 anchor 3,800sf commercial space. Over 4,000sf of interior amenities include a ground-floor resident library. Outdoor amenities include a pool, private lounge areas, and summer kitchen and dining.
Congress Lofts will be Austin’s first true-loft residential building. Inspired by a modern restoration of the warehouse-style buildings seen in Brooklyn and other major US cities, the world class design team has collaborated to create an industrial-style brick façade with expansive warehouse-style windows, large cantilever balconies and modern industrial finishes.
Positioned on the South Congress Avenue corridor, Congress Lofts will be 5 minutes to the heart of South Congress retail district and 10 minutes to downtown. In addition, it is located within a 15-minute bike ride along the new 4.8-mile protected bicycle lane to the central business district and walking distance to the proposed new orange line for Capitol Metro. This new community is within a 10 minute drive to Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.
The St. Elmo District is a location immersed in creative energy, local entertainment, and a thriving social beer and cocktail scene. Some of Austin’s most creative crafters and hospitality concepts kicked off the St. Elmo District such as Pilgrim Builders, Juice Land, ICON, Drophouse, St. Elmo Brewing, Austin Winery, Still Whiskey, and Spokesman Coffee; and more recently, Tesla has opened its $2MM state-of-the-art showroom in the neighborhood. This industrial hub is a new urban neighborhood on the rise.
