This Could Be Your WFH View in the Heart of Downtown Austin

Known by locals as the "Jenga Tower" and "Tetris Building", this two bedroom condo in Austin's most iconic apartment complex is a rare find. With floor-to-ceiling windows and a second-bedroom-slash-office to work remote from.

From state of the art amenities to the unparalleled views of downtown, this condo could be exactly what you're looking for...

The building

How would you like to live in the tallest building in Austin? That's right, at 690 feet and 58-stories high, The Independent is the tallest building in Austin. Fun fact.

With over 20,000 square feet of amenities spanning two levels of the building, you won't be bored living here. Highlights include the 9th floor amenities deck with an infinity edge heated pool, outdoor lounge with fireplace, a dog lounge and park, a children's activity room and playground, and a club room with a coffee bar. There are even guest suites. Meanwhile on the 34th floor, you'll find the sky fitness center that is cantilevered over the building edge, the yoga and barre studio and deck, and private changing rooms. As well as a business center, board room, and conference rooms, a 25-person movie theatre, a chef's kitchen and private dining space, an owner's lounge, and another outdoor lounge - need we continue? You get it - amenities galore.

The building is also super secure and requires a fob to access the building and amenities.

This $840,000 two-bedroom condo is a rare find

Now that we've gotten the abundant amenities out of the way, let's focus on the condo itself. Located on the northwest corner of the building, unit #1101 features floor-to-ceiling glass windows with incredible city and capitol views.

Featuring one master bedroom and ensuite master bath, the apartment also comes with a second full bathroom and a "bonus" room that could be used as a second bedroom, or dream home office. This highly-functional floor plan is one of just 14 in the entire complex making it a rare and covetable condo.

Just imagine this as your WFH view...

A kitchen worthy of a professional chef

There's both a Whole Foods and a Trader Joes within five minutes walk of The Independent, so your grocery runs will be easy breezy allowing you to cook up a storm in this beautiful kitchen. Featuring high-end stainless steel appliances, ample storage, and counter space. You can enjoy meals right on the waterfall countertop island with ease.

The apartment features many other custom upgrades including shades, integrated speakers, hardwood floors, a media center with storage, and closet systems.
