The Grand is a luxury multi-family development located in Austin, Texas. The drive in motorcade features unique finishes and leads into the main lobby where you will be greeted by a concierge. There are five resident lounges stacked at the glass corner of the building featuring glowing backlit acrylic art. The largest of the five lounges is located on level three which connects to the pool and offers amenities such as wine lockers and a catering kitchen for residents.

The biggest challenge for this project was setting it apart from neighboring properties. The area in and around The Grand is booming with new construction, and people are really flocking to North Austin to live and work. To stand out, we immediately thought what are you going to see from the street to draw you in? Our double height leasing lobby has a spectacular custom chandelier that is like a piece of art. The wave like forms and shining pendants immediately attract your attention as you are walking by, especially at night. The layered shades at the storefront of this space look like a textile installation and are functional window coverings. We really focused on carrying the elegance of the property’s amenity areas into the units. The corridors have hospitality carpet with an organic design as well as cut outs in the ceiling with warm cove lighting. This makes the experience of walking to your home feel more like you are walking through a luxury hotel. In the units themselves, we have high end appliances, book end cabinets by the peninsulas, a tall quartz back splash in the kitchen in lieu of tile, and all peninsulas and islands have a waterfall counter top. Some bathrooms have wet rooms where the tub and shower are all enclosed in one space, and the closets have custom dressers in them. All these special details really help this community stand out!
