Formly known as University House, Ion Austin is a first-class student apartment development with state-of-the-art amenities. This 19-story student housing project includes 188 apartment units (504 beds) with studio and one- to four-bedroom floor plans complete with flat-screen televisions and a full private bathroom for each bedroom. Also included is a four-level, 260-car, controlled-access parking garage (two levels of which are below-grade) and a 4,800-SF ground-level commercial suite.

Features include an expansive clubroom with pool and ping pong tables, wireless gaming and multiscreen TV walls, a terrace-level pool with a Jumbotron LED TV, a two-story genius lounge with Mac and PC stations, private study pods and conference rooms with smartboard technology, 24/7 controlled access throughout, and a state-of-the-art fitness center with integrated media. A brand-new, 5,000 SF University Lutheran Student Center is located on the first floor, which replaces the original center that was built in 1971. Students in the ministry were involved in the building-developer selection process. The architect for this part of the project was Di Piazza Cobb Architecture.

Located at the northwest corner of West 21st Street and San Antonio, this project is LEED certified and is an UNO-smart housing development.
