This is the epicenter of Austin. Here you will find high rises, the capitol, and Austin’s urban core. Predominantly, the only type of housing you will find here is condos. There are a number of new condo developments being built downtown; thus, inventory is continually increasing. In addition to the new developments in central downtown such as 5th & West, The Independent, Austin Proper, and the luxurious Austonian condos, there are also a number of recently constructed condo buildings in the Rainey street district. Living in downtown Austin is convenient. You can walk to a number of restaurants, bars, shops, and entertainment options with ease. You can also take advantage of the nearby hike and bike trail around Lady Bird Lake for recreation.
