I have put this together so that you get a feeling for our community.
A very desirable area, generally with high prices, single family homes, newer lofts, now highrise condos, easy access to downtown, UT, museums, our downtown is very much alive with shops, fine hotels, many restaurants and bars. Central Austin is “north of the river”.
South and Southwest Austin:
“South of the river”, very close to downtown, Congress Avenue development of shops and condos, pride in neighborhood. I remember selling homes in that area under $ 70,000 nine years ago and the same house would now be $ 350,000. This is a hot area. New environmentally friendly construction. Further south you will find Circle C and Legend Oaks.
The “new” downtown, very close to downtown, has seen a construction boom, especially since
the old airport was moved to Bergstrom, an area where the city build plazas, libraries, and where you will find the Mueller Airport development project with offices, small town homes, schools, and made for walking on foot. Another hot area.
North and Northwest Austin:
Neighborhoods stretch from north of central Austin (1B) all the way to Round Rock, Cedar Park, Pflugerville, includes the Arboretum, the new Domain, and many of the high tech employers.
West Austin: Think Eanes
School District, hill country.
SOCO – South Congress: this used to be slightly seedy but now a new image and hip – stretches from Town
Lake/Lady Bird Lake all the way south to St. Edward’s University.
DOWNTOWN CONDOS: This is a new development for Austin – we have a lively and modern downtown with so many new condos. There are a number of completed and pending projects of condos and lofts and it is best to check them all out through austintowers.com with whose permission I am attaching this map. Condo
EAST AUSTIN: Some of the neighborhoods have been neglected over the
past years but have now become hip and eclectic and one finds traditional homes
next to very modern buildings. You will find homes and condos and shops and
established businesses and those of young entrepreneurs. There are plenty of
coffee shops and art galleries. The area is very walkable and most important,
very close to downtown. the area is roughly east of IH 35 and between MLK in
the north and Cesar Chavez in the south.
