Arch-Con® Corporation opens Austin office with projects underway

AUSTIN (January 19, 2021) – Arch-Con recently opened an office in downtown Austin at 301 Congress Avenue to serve the Austin and San Antonio markets and is breaking ground on two projects in downtown.

New student housing project six blocks from UT campus

Arch-Con is soon to break ground on a student housing project on the former Chelsea apartments in West Campus near the University of Texas at 2500 San Gabriel Street in Austin, Texas. The 248-bed student housing project is just six blocks from the UT campus.

Arch-Con veteran Marc MacConnell is the company’s Central Texas Regional Manager. “I’m excited for Arch-Con’s arrival into Austin to bring our forward-thinking commercial real estate methods to the area,” MacConnell said. “We thrive on a think-it-through, early-on approach to construction and our clients have come to recognize and appreciate it.”

Arch-Con is already active in the area building DD’s Discounts in Round Rock, Texas, finishing a Village Medical clinic in Cedar Park, Texas, breaking ground on a 12,400-square-foot retail shell building in San Marcos, Texas, negotiating a 17-story hotel in Austin and bidding an apartment conversion in San Antonio.

Celebrating more than 20 years in the commercial construction industry, Arch-Con was founded in Houston and understands the critical need for a hard-working, collaborative mix of talent.
