51-story condo tower planned for Rainey district

Developer Intracorp plans to start selling condos at its first Austin project early next year.

A new-to-town developer is making a splashy Austin debut. Vancouver-based Intracorp, which last month named longtime Austinite Brad Stein as its managing director of Austin operations, is planning a 51-story condominium tower at 44 East Ave.

The 545-foot-tall, 460,000-square-foot building will rise about 20 stories higher than the tallest existing or currently planned buildings in the Rainey Street area.
