the future, together.
Community-conscious real-estate development, with a focus on commercial, multifamily residential, and mixed-use properties.
Commercial space is the lifeblood of any modern urban community, providing services, jobs, infrastructure, and, perhaps most importantly, points of connection. At Austringer, we focus on designing dynamic, integrated commercial spaces structured to enhance the communities they inhabit.
As our cities grow outward and upward, more than ever we find their different elements inhabiting the same space. Austringer recognizes how these unique, innovative locations are perfectly positioned to support both their own interior world and the corridors they come to structure, and works to intelligently combine people with the businesses who will not only serve them, but will also be their neighbors.
Austringer recognizes that the places we live shape the content of our lives, and works to identify, develop, and adapt spaces that perfectly suit their communities. Whether designing and building from the ground up, or adapting other properties to a new use, we have the same principles of sustainability, economic viability, and community in mind.
Austringer is committed to the notion that real-estate development is community development. Our goal is to bring the levers of economic development into new communities, helping provide access both to quality, dynamic, vibrant spaces and, through intelligent planning, design, and implementation, to powerful tools of personal economics and community finance.
But communities also exist in the world at large. That's why we're committed to sustainable development. At every stage of the process, we strive to apply state-of-the-art technology and principles of water use, green energy, and renewable resources. In this fast-moving area of science and technology, we recognize how it's important not only to implement the current best practices, but to continually strive to improve them.
At Austringer, we're passionate about people, and spaces, and how both can improve the world around them.
