Northland Living, which launched in late 2023 as Canadian hospitality powerhouse firm Northland Properties’ new development affiliate, has announced plans to develop Luminary, a 35-story, 400-foot condo tower in downtown Austin.

Designed by Page Sotherland Page’s Austin team, the beaming tower’s exterior will have a bright, neutral aesthetic with copper-toned metallic elements. Graceful arches will adorn the street level, while one- to three-bedroom residences will rest atop the retail space, a 6.5-level parking structure, and one level of contemporary office space. An amenity deck will be just above the parking podium. Luminary’s amenities will include a pool, fitness facilities, and expansive indoor and outdoor spaces.

“Our ultimate goal is to bring beautiful, functional, and timeless living to a part of downtown Austin that’s ideal for a residential community,” says Tony Kaleel, president and chief operating officer of Northland Living. “We’re uniting enduring design with the character and charm of the surrounding area.”

Located on a 0.81-acre site at the northwest corner of 14th and Guadalupe streets, the property is presently home to the Combined Law Enforcement Associations of Texas (CLEAT), which will gain a new 10,000-square-foot office space in the new tower, enabling the organization to maximize the value of its land and remain on-site.

“What makes Luminary particularly special is that it offers attainable home ownership for urban dwellers seeking the city energy and conveniences combined with the serenity of a residential neighborhood,” says Kevin Burns, founder and CEO of Urbanspace. “Additionally, new homes for less than $1 million in downtown Austin fill a much-needed void, and are particularly attractive to young professionals, empty nesters, and people wanting a lock-and-leave lifestyle or second residence.”

Flintco will serve as general contractor for the Luminary, and Kimley-Horn has been tapped as engineer, while Drenner Group is providing legal services.

Northland Living will focus on developing residential towers and mixed-use communities in Texas. In addition to the Luminary site in downtown Austin, it owns or controls sites in Dallas and Cedar Park, a fast-growing suburb northwest of Austin. Based in Vancouver, Northland Properties owns and operates 63 hotels and resorts, 175 restaurants and venues, and three hockey teams in five countries.
