shops, entertainment, businesses, banks,
restaurants, attractions, and much more.
Downtown dwellers are a diverse group
of professionals, retirees, families, and
college students. Even those who live out
of town have chosen Austin’s downtown
as the perfect place for their second home
away from home – it’s ideal for UT foot-
ball fans that live out of town. The cost of
an urban lifestyle depends on the location,
setting, views and amenities. The number
of condos for sale has remained relatively
constant for the last year or so.
Current active market listings range from
about $100,000 for a one-bedroom, one-bath
condo to more than $4 million for a premier
penthouse suite. Designs for the downtown
high-rise units are usually contemporary,
with open floor plans, and natural materials
like concrete, wood, brick, and steel.
Austin’s Eastside isn’t like other cities. Out
of 250 neighborhoods in America, Forbes
Magazine named it the 7th ‘hippest hipster
neighborhood’ in the entire country.
Blooming with artistic expression, delicious
dining experiences, family-friendly events and
a group of forward-thinkers, East Austin epitomizes life as a modern Austinite. A haven
for foodies along with a slew of bars in close
proximity to The University of Texas, there
are plenty of ways to enjoy your free time.
Located just on the other side of the I- 35,
you’re in close proximity to Downtown, South
Congress Avenue, and Lady Bird Lake.
Home prices range between $200,000-
$1,000,000 and the public school system is
currently experiencing a large expansion. East
Austin encompasses the areas off Manor Rd
and neighborhoods like Cherrywood, French
Place, Mueller, and French Legation.
East Austin has traditionally attracted students
but is currently attracting everyone from
families, young professionals and Austin
newcomers. If you’re looking for a lifestyle
that is uniquely Austin, close to downtown
and a walkable neighborhood, look no further
than East Austin.
NORTH CENTRAL AUSTIN
For those who don’t want to live in a big
suburb, the older, established North Central
Austin neighborhoods like Allandale, Crestview, and Hyde Park offer great appeal. All
have great parks, pools, shopping and strong
neighborhood associations, plus a great
location that makes it easy to get just about
Allandale is bounded by Anderson Lane
on the north, by Shoal Creek at 45th Street
