The Austonian is the second North American luxury real estate project by Grupo Villar Mir (GVM), creators of the Mayakoba golf, hotel and residential resort on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. GVM has developed and sold over 7,000 individual residential condominium units all over the world, and has controlling interest in Obrascón Huarte Lain (OHL), which has built and sold over 20,000 residential condominium units throughout the past decade. In Texas, GVM operates through subsidiary Benchmark Development.

Environmentally Conscious Design

The 854,000-square-foot Austonian tower – located on just one-third of a city block – is designed to minimize water and energy use. From building design and sustainable architectural features, to low-water landscaping and a reclaimed-water irrigation system, The Austonian offers sustainable luxury living in the heart of downtown Austin. The Austonian has been recognized for its green building practices, with a coveted Four-Star Commercial Rating from Austin Energy Green Building. The Austonian is the second building in downtown Austin to have earned this rating, which is comparable to a U.S. Green Building Council LEED Gold rating. In recognition of the project’s commitment to sustainability, the Austin Business Journal also awarded The Austonian a “Going Green” Award in 2011.

Design and Construction

Since its completion, The Austonian has won multiple awards in recognition of excellence in design and construction. In 2010, McGraw-Hill Construction awarded the project a national “Best of” Award in the Multi-Family Residential/Hospitality category. The Austonian was the only project in Texas to win a national “Best of” Award in 2010. The Austonian also received a “Best of” award from Texas Construction in December 2010, which put the project in the running for the national Texas Construction award. The Austonian also won an award from the Austin chapter of the Urban Land Institute in 2012 for being the best real estate development project completed in Austin within the last five years.
