New 51-story high-rise plan for Rainey Street

Rainey Street high rise

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Another high-rise is planned for downtown Austin’s Rainey Street.

A 51-story tower is proposed at 90-92 Rainey St., where Container Bar and Bungalow now stand. The tower will include 290 apartments and a 293-room hotel, said developer Kevin Burns, who is also the founder and CEO of Urbanspace Real Estate + Interiors.

Burns hopes the tower would be a new home for the bars — he said Container Bar would move into the ground floor of the tower, and Bungalow would have a spot on the second floor.

Engineering firm Kimley-Horn and Associates Inc. on March 4 filed a site plan application with the city of Austin Development Services Department for the project. The site plan itself has not yet been submitted.
