It’s good to see some activity on Congress. We spend our time worrying about the Warehouse district, while we have boarded up historical buildings on Congress Ave that need good owners and tenants.
The ABJ is reporting on an Italian restaurant, Quatrro Gatti, moving into 908 Congress Ave by the end of summer. Down the block El Chile is open at 918 Congress. At 319 Congress a bistro-themed eatery called Annies will soon open.
The Downtown Austin Alliance’s is “… a 24/7 Congress alive with commerce and serving as a model for the rest of downtown.” Progress has been slow, but these three restaurants are great step forward to attracting investment dollars to Congress.
