Downtown Austin’s urban lifestyle offers the best of authentic ATX right at your doorstep. Multi-block and pedestrian-friendly, its high-end condominiums offer instant access to hundreds of downtown employers—not to mention trendy shops, exceptional restaurants, historic live music venues, and museums. Life downtown also provides convenient access to everyday needs, from grocery stores and dry cleaners to dog groomers and more. Interested in recreation? Endless outdoor adventures await at Ladybird Lake, adored by kayakers, rowers, runners, dog-walkers, canoers, and stand-up paddlers alike.

Karen Cole and her spouse work downtown and enjoy living in the W Hotel & Residences on Lavaca Street. "Our kids are grown, so we traded the house and the yard for a high-rise condo with a lake view. We're avid runners, and the W is two blocks from the hike and bike trail. Life is good!"

History

Downtown Austin originated in the 1830s when President of the Republic of Texas Mirabeau B. Lamar directed Edwin Waller (the first mayor of Austin) to plan its construction. Waller plotted out a 640-acre (one square mile) grid pattern between Shoal Creek and Waller Creek on the north bank of the Colorado River consisting of 14 blocks running each direction and one grand avenue, Congress Avenue. The streets running east-west (now changed to numbers) were originally named after native Texas trees, while the streets running north-south reflected the order of Texas’ major rivers.

Businesses


Downtown Austin at Neches StreetThe City of Austin is a top employer, as well as Travis County (one of Austin’s top 10 largest public employers). Other major businesses include the corporate headquarters of Whole Foods Market, Silicon Labs, and GSD&M Idea Lab.

The University of Texas at Austin is another large employer, boasting over 24,000 faculty and staff members. Downtown Austin also is dominated by the Texas State Capitol and associated government buildings.

Downtown Austin Amenities

Cole and her husband appreciate downtown amenities. "I enjoy the opera and ballets at the Long Center. My husband digs live music. Living downtown, we don't have to compromise. We can do it all in one night."

The Long Center for the Performing Arts

Many high-rise condominiums offer their own amenities, such as gyms, rooftop pools, concierge services, and more. The area also is ripe with perks:

Parks

Waterloo Neighborhood Park, named after the city that originally stood where Austin is today, offers 10 acres of picnic tables and creekside recreation. Walkers, joggers, and bikers adore the Trail at Ladybird Lake, with its 10 miles of lakeside gravel trails. At 4th and Guadalupe St., the historic one-acre Republic Square Park is known for its movies in the park, afternoon yoga, and a Saturday morning farmers’ market. Austin BMX and Skate Park offers 30,000-square-feet of ramps, humps, rails, stairs, and a half pipe.

Theaters

Located at 7th and Congress Avenue, the historic State Theater was built in 1935. Built and completed in 1915, the adjacent Paramount Theater is another Austin cultural icon. Originally made for vaudeville, it was later remodeled for cinematic use with upholstered chairs and a state-of-the-art sound system. Locally-owned Violet Crown Cinema offers a bar and café, and four screens devoted to independent, documentary, and international films. Founded in Austin, the Alamo Drafthouse’s Ritz Location (on Sixth Street) is another cinematic jewel.

Shopping and Restaurants

Kruger's Jewelry on Congress Ave in Downtown Austin, TX"My girlfriends and I enjoy strolling Second Street," shared Cole. "A cup of coffee at Jo's, and we're ready to window shop! Sometimes we head to Milk and Honey spa afterward for a little pampering."

While shopping and dining opportunities permeate Downtown Austin, they are most concentrated in three areas: Congress Avenue District, Second Street District, and the Market District.

Congress Avenue District is home to historic retailers like Kruger’s Jewelers as well as newer additions like Brooks Brothers and Wild About Music. Diners enjoy restaurants like Annie’s Café, Manuel’s, and La Traviata.

Shop an array of street-level storefronts in the recently developed Second Street District. Local retail favorites include Design Within Reach, Urban Outfitters, Estilo, Girl Next Door, Eliza Paige, and Bang & Olufsen. Once you’re famished, enjoy some fine cuisine at Cru Wine Bar, Taverna Austin, or Malaga.

Retail shoppers can head next door to By George, West Elm, or Stella Says Go. A walk across 6th Street takes shoppers to stores like REI, Anthropologie, and locally owned BookPeople.
