The Independent is one of Austin’s finest luxury condominium buildings. 

History And Location

Located at 301 West Avenue, at the corner of West Avenue and 2nd Street, completed in 2019 and soaring 58 stories tall, The Independent, is one of Austin’s premier luxury condominiums. Fondly referred to as “the Jenga building” for its’ iconic shape and form that cantilevers four distinct blocks of condos was the brainchild of Rhode Partners. The Independent has left a distinct impact on the ever changing Austin Skyline. This building has one, two and three and four bedroom plans. It remains the tallest residential tower in the city of Austin. And, soon will be surpassed in height by Sixth and Guadalupe.

Living Vertically

Parking is dedicated to the first 9 floors of the building ensuring that units are up in the air with minimal street sounds flowing upward. The Independent is nestled in it’s own enclave away from major streets.The only car traffic is coming directly to the building, The Co-Dependent or Urban Space furniture which are all in the same lot space. Or people may be visiting the nearby Seaholm District just across the street.  Point is, it’s incredibly serene. The foot path that takes you to other parts of downtown and down to Lady Bird Lake is at your doorstep.

Here’s the short strokes on building layout:
* Units start on the 10th floor.

* 42 floors of living spaces (8 units per floor) with downtown corridor views as well as breathtaking southeast and southwest views of Ladybird Lake and Hill Country. 

* 6 penthouse floors. 4 units per floor.

Units are modern and open with chic chef’s kitchen featuring granite covered islands, pristine cabinetry, Thermador or Miele cooking appliances and refrigerators, custom cabinetry and extensive entertaining experiences are sure to be had. 

Energy Rated

They actually made use of a 75 kilowatt solar powered system, which means the site has a lot of renewable energy, and a 50,000 gallon damper tank stabilizes the building and acts as an additional water source in case of fire. Plus, there’s a rainwater collection system. This luxury condominium is also eco-friendly!


The Independent spares nothing when it comes to amenities. With over 20,000 ft of “vertical living” that owners enjoy day or night including various business spaces (sleek and modern yet inviting), a 25 seat movie theater (you can book for your family and run off an ipad), yoga room, an infinity glass-edge pool on the 34th floor, gym (featuring the latest equipment), outdoor barbeque spaces, dog wash area, a dog park (you can watch your dog play while having coffee in the bark lounge), and more! While this building prides itself on understated elegance, it spares nothing!


The front desk team is phenomenal, taking packages and maintaining privacy for all who live there.

Guest Suites

That’s right! If you have friends and family coming to stay with you, as an owner you may  rent a guest suite on their behalf nightly on a first-come-first-served allocation.
