721 Congress

721 Congress is a mixed-use development planned for the corner of Congress Avenue and Eighth Street, adjacent to the historic State and Paramount Theaters and only a few blocks from the Texas State Capitol. The existing single-story structure is being redesigned to accommodate six additional floors to yield approximately 50,000 total square feet. The building design calls for a restaurant space on the ground floor, office space on the second floor, five floors of residential lofts, and a roof terrace. The street level will enjoy the Great Streets sidewalk improvements, expanding the sidewalk from 8 feet to 27 feet, with newly planted trees, lighting, and paving. A wide balcony at the second floor will wrap the building on Eighth Street and Congress Avenue. The open-plan condominiums are truly loft spaces, with all separation walls and interior finishes to be determined by individual owners.
