Downtown Austin has a variety of condos for sale and apartments to rent. Some new, some old. Some modern, some more traditional. Though for aesthetic reasons we differentiate Austin’s lofts for sale, the Austin building boom over the past decade has made the term “Austin condos” synonymous with downtown.

Austin condos are available in many sizes, and floor plan configurations, and commensurate broad range in pricing. Average and median pricing in the summer of 2016 is hovering over $500 per square foot. At the very upper end, we’ve observed new construction and luxury condo tower pricing exceeding $1,200 per square foot. Factors such as building age, proximity to the lake, protected views of the lake, and building amenities have a direct impact on pricing.
If you want new construction in the downtown core, then the only buildings currently available with a handful of residences never lived in is the Austonian and recently completed Seaholm Condos. Under construction is Fifth & West Residences, 70 Rainey, and the Independent.
Generally, the higher the floor the better the view, thus prices will increase as you go up. Notably, there is a premium to live close to Whole Foods. This could change when downtown Austin gets a supermarket east of Congress Ave, and one is rumored to be going into the Rainey Street District.
Those with pets and enjoy the outdoors should consider the Milago Condos, the Shore Condos, and other buildings generally close to the trail. If you enjoy listening to live music and like to be near the historical center of Austin consider Avenue Lofts, Brazos Lofts, or The Sabine. Many people want the best views in town and should consider Spring Condos, 360 Condos, or the south facing residences at the W Hotel Condos.
