Global Luxury, Local Feel
A luxury high-rise residence like The Austonian requires not only a signature style, but also a solid foundation – a base of operation that matches the building’s unparalleled scale.
Headquartered in Madrid,Spain, Grupo Villar Mir (GVM) is a $7.6 billion company that knows luxury on a global scale, yet recognizes that buying a home is a uniquely personal and local decision.
Through its wholly-owned Austin-based subsidiary, Benchmark Development, GVM has been building communities in Central Texas for nearly two decades. The Austonian is the realization of Benchmark’s long-term vision to help build Austin’s vibrant downtown community by creating an iconic residential property along Austin’s Congress Avenue.
Building Austin’s tallest building is a testament to GVM’s appreciation for and commitment to the capital of Texas. The company has a proven track record in the luxury market and The Austonian’s location, architectural and interior design, amenities and stunning views will reflect that experience and understanding.
