44 east ave

austin, texas

44 East Ave, located at the corner of East Avenue and Cummings Street in the Rainey District. With stunning panoramic views of the lake, this for-sale residential tower is designed for residents to enjoy a walkable city and take advantage of the cultural benefits of living in the heart of downtown Austin. 44 East Ave will offer best-in-class amenities and unparalleled access to the Ladybird Lake and the hike and bike trail. dwg. is very proud to be collaborating with Michael Hsu Office of Architecture, Page Architects, Urban Space and the client, Intracorp.

dwg.’s scope includes the design of the on-structure residential amenity pool “gardens” that feature outdoor dining, a signature “cenote” pool, yoga lawn, dog parks and a rich native Austin landscape that frames stunning views of the Lake and surrounding city.

The streetscape design incorporates a signature urban plaza that engages and “pulls” the adjacent parkland up to the front door of the project while also seamlessly integrating two preserved heritage trees into the design of the streetscape.

Our work promotes the role and importance of green infrastructure by integrating rain gardens and green walls into the arrival sequence to the project and by utilizing local materials, native plants and high efficiency irrigation.

The project is expected to break ground in the fall of 2019 and will be complete in 2022.
