With a new year, we’re proud to unveil a new format for our Seaholm Residences newsletter. We’ll slim down the information, and save any buyer-specific details for individual outreach – to make it that much easier to catch those hot-off-the-press important details for move-in (which is just around the corner!). If you ever have any feedback, or ideas for the newsletter, please do not hesitate to email your input to us at anytime!

Congress and 2nd Bar & Kitchen are two of our crowning culinary gems in Austin, thanks to Jeff Trigger, President & Owner of La Corsha Hospitality Group, and Executive Chef David Bull & Chef Jason Stude, Chef de Cuisine, of Second Bar + Kitchen.
With both restaurants located next door to the Austonian, Austonian residents have been able to enjoy Austin’s finest as a virtual extension of their amenities. But starting in June of this year, La Corsha will enable the same exclusive amenity to residents of the Seaholm Residences and the community as a whole.
Boiler Nine Bar + Grill, whose name is derived from its location in the repurposed ninth boiler of the Seaholm Power Plant, will offer a culinary experience unlike any other Austin has seen. Imagine 10,000 SF of space, spread across three floors, offering an individual dining experience on each – including a rooftop Deck 9 observation deck.
Future home of Boiler Nine Bar + Grill, within the northwest corner of the Power Plant
Three menus will be anchored in the feel of each floor, and will take inspiration from the fire-driven process of the former Power Plant. Diners can anticipate the same sophisticated, yet innovative, menu you would expect from La Corsha’s sister establishments.
The Seaholm team sat down with Jeff to further explore our soon-to-be favorite restaurant and bar – Boiler Nine Bar + Grill:
What attracted to you the Seaholm Power Plant redevelopment effort?
The stars aligned for us on this opportunity. On one hand, you have the Seaholm Power Plant, which is one of the most iconic buildings in Austin, and Boiler Nine, which is one of the most iconic parts of the former Power Plant.
On the other hand, you have a stunning setting in a rapidly evolving part of downtown. This central location will only be further enhanced and better positioned with time via transportation and density, but the views should always be preserved. Essentially, we’re looking at the new center of downtown, and we’re in the middle of it all.
What is your vision for Boiler Nine Bar + Grill?
In a nutshell, it’s three bars, plus three menus, plus three stories. An individual experience is offered everywhere you go within the facility.
What do you think the residents and community will enjoy most about Boiler Nine Bar + Grill?
We hope that residents of the Seaholm Residences and community patrons will utilize Boiler Nine as their living room, dining room, and family room. Whether they wish to relax with sophisticated cocktails and yakatori in the Boiler Room (Underground Bar); invite family or friends to a four-course meal with drinks on the Ground Level (Loft) or one of the patios; or party outside on Deck 9 (the roof-top Observation Deck) – there is something for everyone.
Get excited to try Boiler Nine Bar + Grill in June 2015!
A new home needs a whole lot of you, and your design touches, to make it feel just right. It’s an extension of you after all, so customize it from top to bottom.
But where to start? A good leaping-off point is the closet. Efficient use depends on your needs, so leave it to the experts to help identify how best to optimize it from top to bottom!
Here are two closet systems perfect for your Seaholm Residences condo or home of any size:
Gliss Up from Molteni & C
This is the newest addition to the Gliss family of wardrobes and closets fromMolteni & C. Gliss Up is an elegant solution that separates the traditional freestanding wardrobe into two parts: a lower organizing shelf with drawers and upper cabinets for hanging items. It provides a visual lightness that is in contrast with traditional wardrobe solutions.
Gliss Quick from Molteni & C
The Gliss Quick collection include solutions for freestanding wardrobes, walk-in closets, open shelving, and drawer systems. Each system is custom-tailored to your unique space and storage needs. As with all Molteni & C systems, Gliss Quick includes numerous finishing options, handle profiles, lighting options, and accessories.
