Exclusive: New plans for downtown tower The Linden

Here’s what the 28-story building headed for 17th and Guadalupe will look like

There is a deck with concrete pillars about a third of the way up, and the floors below that are concrete and covered with a semi-opaque facade—presumably the parking garage. Under that is a ground floor with window walls and a border of trees lining the corner sidewalks.

When we last visited the new tower proposed for 17th and Guadalupe streets in our preview of 20 towers that will reshape the Austin skyline, we didn’t have a lot of details—including a name for the building.

Thanks to early word of an impending announcement, we now know have more details—including an exclusive first look at new renderings.

The new tower will be located at 313 West 17th Street, between Lavaca and Guadalupe streets, where it will replace the current Gammon Insurance Company building and a surface parking lot.

The 300,000-squaree-foot building will be christened The Linden, a nod to Linden Street, West 17th Street’s original name. It will be neighbors with longtime local restaurant The Clay Pit and across the street from the new Travis County courthouse, currently under construction.

Designed by Rhode, the Austin-based architectural and design firm behind the Independent, the Catherine, and other notable Austin buildings, the Linden will be a 28-story condominium tower. It will feature 117 luxury residences, ranging from one- to three-bedroom units, and will feature two-story penthouses curated by Rhode. There will also be nine floors of parking below the residences.

The Linden will couple contemporary modern style with its historic name and will feature the work of local and international artists in its lobby.

Local brokerage DEN Property Group will handle sales and marketing for the Linden, which is being developed by New York’s Reger Holdings.

The Linden Lobby will feature local and national art.
