I think we can all agree that Austin is a beautiful city, and downtown Austin displays the character of Austin in the very heart of the city.
Downtown Austin is endearing because it is so much more than just a concrete jungle. If you think about it, downtown Austin has everything that Austinites hold dear:
Lots of green spaces, trails and outdoor amenities
-The glorious Lady Bird Lake
-The 10-mile Ann and Roy Butler Hike and Bike Trail
-The impressive Shoal Creek Trail
-The beautiful Waller Creek Park
-The vibrant Republic Square
Live music on 6th Street and at Austin City Limits
Easy access to world renowned festivals such as ACL and SXSW
Proximity to the University of Texas—Sports, Musicals, and Concert Venues
A Farmer’s Market
One of the nation’s best new public libraries
A heathy dose of weird
More and more residents looking to downsize are now ditching their tired family home in the suburbs and opting to buy a luxury, full service condo in Downtown Austin. With restaurants, shopping, coffee, museums, entertainment and parks steps away from your door, you won’t have to get in your car every time you want to get a cup of coffee or see a movie. Plus, many of these luxury condos provide full service amenities like valet parking and on-site concierges without any exterior maintenance hassles. All of this allows you to spend your time doing the things you love and gives you the ability to savor the vibrant downtown lifestyle.
Downtown Austin condos come in all sizes and price ranges. Anything from the high $200k’s to the millions is typical. If you want to stay away from the louder side of Downtown, try the Warehouse District near 4th Street where you’ll find the more upscale restaurants and bars. A few of our favorite luxury buildings are The Austonian, The W Residences, and Avenue Lofts.
It’s really quite simple. Many people - both empty-nesters and millennials - are looking to simplify their lives.
They value the ease of a "lock & leave" lifestyle
They can spend their spare time doing the things that they love instead of typical house chores - lawn, home repairs, etc.
They want to be be able to travel the world without having to worry about the security and maintenance of their home
They want to be closer to their jobs, cutting out the commute
In short, people want to take advantage of the benefits of modern life. For many, this means leaving behind last century’s model of suburban living.
