The phrase ‘downtown real estate’ is really saying a mouthful when you’re speaking of Austin, Texas. This tiny area of land between Lamar Boulevard and IH35 (the old East Avenue) to the west and east, respectively, and MLK, Jr. Boulevard and Lady Bird Lake to the north and south, holds a lot of variety within its boundaries.
Home to the Texas State Capitol, downtown Austin includes the capital complex of state offices, the Convention Center, entertainment districts of East 6th, West 6th, Red River and the Warehouse area, the Travis County courthouse region, UT Brackenridge Hospital area, historic West End with its rows of historic mansions along West Avenue, Judges’ Hill with beautiful homes, the Rainey Street area along the lake and segments of the University of Texas campus including the Erwin Center. Downtown is where business, education, arts, culture and people come together to create one of the best places in Texas to live. The area is the heart and soul of Austin and you can feel the beat of activity 24/7!
