As we’ve no doubt tiresomely observed before here at Curbed Austin, north seems to be the new east—especially when it comes to residential real estate development aimed at the young, the restless, and the, oh fine, hip (at least we didn’t use the word "millennial"?).
According to local paper Community Impact, The Kalantari Group—a developer comes to Texas by way of California and seems so far to have focused on suburban areas such as Lakeline Mall and Leander in the Austin area—will break ground July 1 on a four-story mixed-use building at 6500 Burnet Road, to be called Sixty Five.
Plans are for the building to have 52 residential units and 4,000 square feet of ground-floor retail, reports Community Impact. The development’s website describes the units as luxury apartments that will consist of "meticulously detailed studios, one- and two-bedroom apartments with private balconies, floor-to-ceiling glass and stunning views."
The north central neighborhoods on and around Burnet have seen a steady increase in development of all kinds, as well as an influx of homebuyers and renters. Located not far from booming, popular retail and restaurants old and new including Barley Swine, Bufalina Due, Blue Star Cafe, and Little Woodrow’s, as well as being on a major bus thoroughfare, the development is aimed at residents who value walkability and access to restaurants, retail, and active street life.
Community Impact reported that Sixty Five should begin leasing in summer 2017.
