About 44 East Ave

44 East Ave

At the foot of Rainey Street, 44 East Ave by Intracorp is an upscale 49-story residential structure in Austin, TX, offering one to four-bedroom homes to hundreds of potential residents. Nestled on the edge of Lady Bird Lake, the structure provides a second-to-none downtown lakefront living experience. Designed by Page Southerland Page, Inc. and Michael Hsu Office of Architecture, the astounding structure boasts a stunning architectural design alongside a stylish interior. Residents can enjoy an array of amenities, including a concierge, fitness studio, games room, outdoor pool deck, and so much more. In addition to over 300 residential units, the structure also features 3,500 sqft of retail space overlooking the park and lake.

The 44 East Ave development not only enhances the neighborhood but also serves as a significant funding source for the Rainey Street Trailhead Project. As a collaborative effort with The Trail Conservancy, and having planned for the expansive parkland south of the tower, the anticipated positive communal impacts that the 44 East Ave structure will have on Austin, TX, are immense – benefiting both residents as well as the neighborhood as a whole for all who visit.
