A new apartment community has broken ground in East Austin, the Austin Business Journal reports.
The Guthrie is under construction on the former site of Guthrie Lumber near Gonzales and Tillery streets. The project will have 322 apartments and live-work units as well. Other amenities will include surface parking (as opposed to a parking garage), a large courtyard, a fenced-in dog park, and a hike-and-bike trail adjacent to the railroad tracks.
The developer, Argyle Residential, has built several multifamily projects in East Austin, including the Lakeshore Pearl, Lakeshore Azul, and Corazon.
The buildings will be three and four stories in this heavily wooded area near the East 7th street bridge. It’s close to a nearby collection of artist studios called Canopy, the Austin Bouldering Project, Friends & Allies Brewing Company, and urban farms Boggy Creek Farm and Springdale Farm.
The developers hope to be able to offer the apartments in this often overlooked area for much less than what apartments closer to downtown would go for.
