Many Austinites know the name Zephyr from the beloved kiddie train that for years chugged through one of Austin's favorite playgrounds, Zilker Park.

Now, an upscale condominium project being built on South Lamar Boulevard will bear the name Zephyr, after the Zilker Zephyr train. The Zilker Zephyr stopped service in 2019 but is due to be replaced by a new miniature train named after the original train dating to 1961, the Zilker Eagle.

Construction is well underway on the five-story condo project, which Austin-based Pearlstone Partners is developing at South Lamar Boulevard and Bluebonnet Lane. The building will have 182 units and is expected to be completed by the second quarter of next year. Formerly called Montage South Lamar, the project broke ground in March 2023.
