The Smartest Building in Austin

  • May 13, 2024

RiverSouth is the first major project within the new South Central Waterfront District of Austin, Texas. The Beck Group led the architecture, design, and construction of the 15-floor office building, and the team set the bar high for future development.

The aim was to create a structure with world-class smart technology that was also sustainable and offered its occupants superior connectivity with the city, including pedestrian-friendly streetscapes, integrated onsite protected bike lanes, and generous walkways with native plantings.

Now finished, the structure consists of 350,000 sq. ft. of Class AA office space, including 20,000 sq. ft. of ground-level retail and restaurant space, plus a five-level, below-grade parking garage. The LEED Gold projects has also earned a SmartScore Platinum certification and RiverSouth is being hailed as the “smartest” building in the city.

The project designer – Andy Kennedy, AIA, Associate Principal at The Beck Group – recently dished to Architectural Products magazine about his team’s success in the Lone Star State.
