Austin-based student housing developer Lincoln Ventures has completed its latest project, Moontower, near the University of Texas campus. The new 18-story high-rise, Lincoln’s seventh near UT, features apartments that have been adapted for online learning and reconfigured for socially-distanced collaboration.
“Moontower was designed intentionally to accommodate a post-COVID world,” said David Kanne, president of Lincoln Ventures. “Whether students attend classes on campus or virtually, we wanted to ensure that residents could study and enjoy a true college experience in a safe and socially-distanced way.”
The project was designed in partnership with Chelsea Kloss Interiors, JE Dunn and Gensler. “Moontower presented a unique opportunity to support local businesses, artists and makers that were impacted by nationwide shutdowns,” said Chelsea Kloss. “We were able to source from local showrooms like Apt F for vintage rugs and pillows, and original art by Maria Martin Art, that gave the space an authentic Austin feel.”
