Transwestern Development to Build Micro Apartment Community in Austin

AUSTIN, TEXAS — Transwestern Development Co. plans to develop Indie Apartments, a micro-unit community at 1648 E. Sixth St. in Austin. Transwestern acquired nearly 0.5 acres and will construct a 139-unit community with a 2,500-square-foot restaurant space in East Sixth, an entertainment district just east of downtown. Groundbreaking is scheduled for June with the first units expected to deliver in August 2017. The 55,814-square-foot property will consist primarily of 350-square-foot studio units and 520-square-foot, two-bedroom units. The fully furnished apartments will maximize space through built-in storage units and flexible furniture systems such as Murphy beds, hideaway kitchen modules and convertible tables. Located less than one block from the Plaza Saltillo metro station, Indie Apartments will feature a large communal area, fire pits, outdoor TVs and 108 below-grade parking spaces. Martines Palmeiro Construction is the general contractor, and Wilder Belshaw Architects is the architect. Comerica provided the financing for the project.
