The Modern condo tower is under construction in the Rainey Street District with delivery slated for 2025.

Kevin’s zest for Austin and the urban lifestyle fuels his vision that has evolved Urbanspace over the past two decades into a turn-key living solution, providing residential and commercial real estate services, condo project development and marketing, interior design services, a furniture showroom with over 100 lines, white glove moving services, and hospitality concepts. His firm has served as the exclusive sales and marketing brokerage on highly successful projects including The Modern, 44 East Ave, The Independent, Seaholm Residences and numerous other projects in the Austin area.
