44 East Groundbreaking Austin

Austin’s newest residential tower is officially underway. The 44 East Avenue project, developed by Intracorp in Austin’s Rainey Street district, kicked off construction with a Demolition Party which raised over $110,000 for The Trail Foundation (TTF).

WGI was a proud sponsor of the groundbreaking and fundraising event, which will help TTF fund improvements to Waller Beach Park as part of the Rainey Street Trailhead Project. TTF is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to protecting, enhancing, and connecting the Ann and Roy Butler Hike-and-Bike Trail at Lady Bird Lake.
