3 New Ultra-Luxury Apartments Opening in Austin in 2024  

Check Out Exciting & Exclusive High-End Rentals Opening This Year in Austin, TX

Austin is the fastest-growing area of Texas, with more people moving to this vibrant and thriving community than any other area of the Lone Star state. That’s spurred a lot of exciting new developments in the Austin area, including a handful of new super-luxe apartments that will be opening their doors to renters in 2024. 

Many of these new high-end rentals in Austin have exquisite features that parallel or even outshine the amenities at the Austin apartments that opened in 2023

Here’s a look at the brand-new luxury rentals opening in Austin in 2024, what they’re offering, and what other ultra-upscale apartments are set to hit the local rental scene by 2026.

1. The Waller

The Waller - New Austin Luxury Highrise Apartments

Promising a “brand-new standard of luxury apartment living” in “Austin’s historic Symphony Square,” The Waller is a glittering 32-story high-rise, with one- to three-bedroom rental homes, along with extraordinary designer touchers and super-fine amenities. 

Open for tours and pre-leasing as of January 2024, The Waller offers “convenient and sustainable luxury,” with “luxe” that you’ll find around every corner and “in each detail.” That includes a 360° upscale experience in every amenity, including (but not limited to): 

  • The 2-story state-of-the-art fitness center with a private yoga studio and stunning views of the Austin skyline
  • An expansive outdoor lap pool, with spa-styled locker rooms
  • A sparkling, resort-styled leisure pool, with poolside cabanas and a grilling area
  • Jo’s Coffee on the ground floor
  • A Penthouse library and coworking lounges
  • A dog park and spa

That’s why The Waller may be the place where you can “have it all” — and why it could be your next “exclusive retreat in the heart of Downtown Austin.”

2.   Shelby Ranch

Spanning 8 acres and opening in the summer of 2024, Shelby Ranch is an ultra-modern, one-of-a-kind community offering “just the right mix of lowkey luxury, green sensibility, eclectic design, and neighborhood charm.” 

It’s comprised of two 4-story buildings, with a sleek, yet “offbeat” design, that will be home to high-end studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and three-bedroom residences. 

As luxe apartments designed for “folks who like to meet people, make things, and enjoy life under the stars,” Shelby Ranch will provide some unmatched amenities, including (but not limited to): 

  • A free-form pool, surrounded by comfortable seating and a  nearby wet deck
  • A “maker-space” and a “workshop” where residents can craft and work on hobby projects
  • An indoor-outdoor resident lounge, complete with a kitchen, a bar, and a fireplace
  • A yoga area and a fully outfitted fitness center
  • On-site bees and chickens that provide honey and eggs to residents
  • Fruit trees, herb gardens, and raised flower beds 

With all of that and more, Shelby Ranch is truly a “rare bird” that’s establishing “a new South Austin original.” 

3. The Travis

Another high-rise popping up in Austin this year is The Travis. Going up in the Rainey District, The Travis will be 50 stories, with more than 400 luxury apartment units and ground-level retail stores. While not much else has been reported about this new Austin high-rise, some local experts anticipate that The Travis may:

  • Open at the end of 2024 or even possibly in 2025: With construction planned for various phases, there have been conflicting reports about whether this new Austin luxury high-rise will open for leasing in 2024 or 2025. The management group could offer pre-leasing this year, rolling out various features of the property at different times as each is completed.
  • Offer all the bells and whistles its competitors do: That could mean everything from cutting-edge fitness centers and gorgeous pools to rooftop amenities, thoughtful in-unit features, and so much more. As we get closer to the opening date for The Travis, we’ll likely see more info released about the amenities available at this high-end community.
