In downtown Austin, Texas, a planned 48-story office tower, The Republic, recently secured its first major tenant—allowing for the groundbreaking by midyear. With views of Lady Bird Lake, the 833,000-square-feet building will be located across from its namesake, Republic Square Park. 

Designed by Duda Paine Architects, The Republic will add a 20,000-square-foot public plaza to its main entrance that will act as an extension of the park. Ground-level elements also will include a restaurant space and other retail. Every office floor of The Republic will feature a private terrace, further connecting tenants to the outdoors.

“From the moment you arrive at The Republic, you will be immersed in the beauty of our city, whether from a private terrace, shared amenity space, or the ground-level plaza,” Seth Johnston, senior vice president, Lincoln Property Company, said in a statement. Lincoln Property Company and co-developer Phoenix Property Company have teamed up with equity partner DivcoWest to develop the project.

The 19th-floor amenity level will boast more than 50,000 square feet of indoor-outdoor space, including conference rooms, fitness center and spin room, club room with a lounge and bar, and a 25,000-square-foot outdoor terrace covered by shade canopies. The designers also emphasized the health and wellness of the office tenants and guests by incorporating touchless access technology and enhanced air-filtration systems.

In addition, bicycle commuters will have access to a private elevator that will take them directly to secure storage for nearly 350 bicycles, as well as a spa-quality locker room and showers.

Co-developers: Lincoln Property Company and Phoenix Property Company
Equity partner: DivcoWest
Design architect: Duda Paine Architects
Architect of record and sustainability consultant: HKS
