The project is now The Four Seasons Private Residences Lake Austin, a partnership between Four Seasons Hotel and Resorts and Austin Capital Partners, along with Hines Interests LP, which will lead the development team and manage construction. This will be the first standalone residential property in Texas for Four Seasons Hotels Ltd. The hospitality company also has standalone residences in London, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
Executive architects for the project are Handel Architects LLP and Page Southerland Page Inc. Design is being spearheaded by DBOX, Breckstudio Architecture and Pharis Design. Arup Group Ltd. is the project engineer.
The 145-acre community will consist of 179 residences. They’ll range in size from 1,900-square-foot “pied-à-terre” units to 7,000-square-foot units and penthouses. The designs reflect the exclusivity and beauty of the unique location, with floor plans that emphasize multi-directional views.
The community will be entirely managed by the Four Seasons through a homeowner’s association, with ample luxury amenities. There will be an indoor garden, a 60,000-square-foot athletic center, a spa, a clubhouse and a theater. There will also be a two-story restaurant exclusively for residents and their guests.
Paul White, Senior Vice President of residential development for the Four Seasons, said the community will have 24-hour security and fully staffed amenities.
He said the project is a good fit for the Four Seasons’ luxury residential brand because it has “the best location, the best architecture, the best design, with the best amenities and lake access.”
The homes will start at $4 million.
