A dynamic and highly walkable 24/7 dine-shop-live-work neighborhood community, T3 Eastside will consist of 93,000 square feet of Class-A office and 9,200 square feet of residential space. The complete project structure will be constructed using sustainably sourced wood, a first for Hines in the residential space. T3 (timber, transit, and technology) is a Hines proprietary mass timber creative product, developed in response to evolving tenant requirements.
Built from heavy timber, T3 Eastside will modernize the historical industrial design of mercantile warehouse buildings, designed specifically to be responsive to the evolving ESG requirements across the commercial real estate industry and to the health and wellness needs of its occupants in a post-COVID environment. This space will be an ideal environment for tenants in industries such as technology, advertising, media, information, and biotechnology/life sciences and residents looking to live in the heart of Austin.
“We are thrilled to kick off construction on this innovative office and residential offering in one of Austin’s most sought-after neighborhoods,” said Philip Croker, Senior Managing Director at Hines and Co-Austin City Head. “Complemented with its advanced technology, unparalleled amenities, and focus on renewability, every aspect of the building is meticulously designed to inspire creativity, attract talent, promote productivity, and honor the unique spirit of Austin’s Eastside neighborhood.”
Upon completion, T3 Eastside will provide office and residential space that is fully future-proofed for modern teams and residents. Common amenities include social work and collaboration spaces; a rooftop patio with city views; private tenant outdoor balconies; shared conference space; a premium fitness center and yoga studio; secured bike storage and end-of-trip facilities; and enhanced Wi-Fi connectivity throughout. Additionally, the building’s systems are technology-rich, minimizing physical building touch points and complete with the latest HVAC systems for indoor air quality and air filtration systems, all aimed at elevating the standards for space in a post-COVID world.
“T3 Eastside is Hines’ first Class-A timber project with a residential component, and we are excited to introduce this unique product to the booming Austin market,” said John Mooz, Senior Managing Director and Austin City Head at Hines. “With ambitious plans and a robust pipeline already in place, I look forward to increasing Hines' presence across the city.”
Hines' design team for the project includes DLR Group, design architect and interior designer of common areas; TBG, landscape architect; and Harvey Cleary, general contractor. Amegy is providing construction and financing, and JLL will be handling leasing for the building.
