Kevin Burns remarked, “Although Austin’s development process was long, our team had the synergy and experience to keep this project on pace while taking our past experiences and creating a building that, we know, will be best in class. We are creating a new standard for condo living in Austin and with the owner always in mind. As a condo dweller myself for 20 years, I wanted to ensuring the team pays attention to every detail, and I’m privileged to work with such great partners. Urbanspace has worked with thousands of condo owners over the past two decades, and they know it’s our passion, which sparked interest as well as the Austin market in general.The Modern’s other partners and consultants include: Nelsen Partners – Design Architect, Page – Architect of Record and Flintco – General Contractor.

The Modern’s grand opening will take place immediately after SXSW, allowing Container Bar and Bungalow, which currently occupy the venues, to operate until mid-March.
