A new multifamily development has completed in Texas Hill Country just minutes away from Downtown Austin, Texas. Dubbed Yaupon Austin, the 296,000-sf complex sits among the rolling hills and treelined canopies of west Austin. The project caters to the cities burgeoning tech and entertainment community.

The project encompasses 10 buildings with winding paths and multiple outdoor common areas. It features a large co-working area, multiple indoor and outdoor lounge areas, a state-of-the-art gym, a rooftop club, a resort-style pool, and two dog parks. The co-working area was designed to meet work from home needs, offering a variety of touchdown spaces. Private workspaces, common meeting areas, and break out rooms are all included.


“Since the pandemic we are seeing developers wanting larger, state-of- the-art,  business centers and coworking spaces designed to fit different WFH needs,” says Laura Britt, Founding Principal, Britt Design Group, in a release. “Coworking spaces are no longer a trend in multi–family complexes  but a necessity for the foreseeable future. We are all seeing focus on common areas – hospitality type settings. Entertainment areas and socializing amenities are more important than ever as well”

A first level club room features a bight color palette balanced by warm wood finishes and white shiplap detailing. A communal cafe area and adjacent lounge spaces can accommodate large gatherings. The pitched ceiling and extensive storefront give the space an open airy feel.

The rooftop Sky Club provides residents the ability to host dinner parties in the spacious lounge and large outdoor deck area. Other spaces throughout the property include a lounge zone and a fire pit area.

Britt Design Group designed all of the public spaces and model units of the complex. Davies Collaborative was the project’s architect. Oden Hughes Taylor Construction was the general contractor and Coleman and Associates was the landscape architect.
