What is Downtown Austin like?
Downtown Austin has come into its own these past few years. Once an area where the streets were rolled up after business hours, the demand for higher density construction and loft living have made Downtown Austin into a community all its own, with an ever growing population.
The cost of Downtown Austin real estate is a limiting factor for many, but for those who can afford it, the term “downtown living” can mean dramatically different things to differently people. For many, it"s a way to stay connected with the urban core of the city and participate in the evolution of this area into a true “walking community.” For others, living in a Downtown Austin high-rise represents the opportunity to shed the extra responsibilities associated with the ownership of a standard home.

Opportunities to live in Downtown Austin are all but exclusive to the high-rises that have sprung up there over the course of the past several years.

It is not at all uncommon for prices to spike to much higher levels than that. Large units in Downtown Austin can cost well over $3,000,000.
