Australian developer plans high-end penthouses for downtown Austin 

Is Austin, Texas the next stop for international jet setters? Australian developer Constellation Property Group thinks so. They are developing a new, ultra-exclusive luxury residential project in downtown Austin that will leave its owners wanting for nothing.

Designed by Australian architect Marchese + Partners International, Star Luxe is a collection of 18 penthouse units to be built on Lady Bird Lake. Inspired by art, music and architecture, the residences are available in three designs: ‘The Guitar”, shaped like the instrument; ‘The Salazar, fashioned after an imaginary artist with the Art Nouveau movement; and ‘The International’, modeled after the architect’s signature ultra-modern designs.

What’s novel here, is the ‘all-inclusive’ approach to service. Owners’ needs - from transportation to the stocking of units with preferred groceries, clothing, beverages, reading materials and even a 5-course meal - will be completely taken care of. As if catering to the rich and famous, the architect has provided a high-level of privacy and security in the project’s design, incorporating such amenities as private elevators; full surveillance, fireproof safe rooms and vaults, and secure garage spaces.

The 4,000 sq ft penthouses will be sited on a four acre parcel which is to include a private spa; outdoor pool with BBQ and exotic fish pond; library and media room; private cinema; pet exercise area and a lush Zen garden.
