Groundbreaking opportunity at The Independent in Austin

  On Monday Jen and I went to the groundbreaking for construction of the new luxury condos at The Independent.  I’ve never been to a groundbreaking before.  It amounted to a lot of people standing around mingling, along with some people with shovels who were clearly not really there to dig.

J Bouldin Condos: fairly priced new construction in the heart of South Austin

When it comes to downtown Austin condos, the Milago is nice. I like it, especially for the idea of going for a run along Lady Bird Lake but… The con’s It’s not downtown, it’s on the outskirts of downtown Austin and is a 10 minute walk to downtown. (see the little yellow dot at the…

The Nokonah high-rise in downtown Austin – my thoughts

Today I visited the Nokonah high-rise downtown Austin condos located on 9th street where it intersects with Lamar, here in Austin of course. For the most part I am not a fan and truth be told I would not buy one with my money. Mostly this is because of the location vs. the prices. Make…

Central Austin Downtown Lofts – My Love Hate Relationship

The Love When downtown Austin was cleared for residential use it was a pretty exciting idea. Now when I visit with people living downtown – it’s virtually unanimous, it’s a blast (as long as you can handle the expected noise, parking issues etc) Literally you can just go down an elevator and in some cases you can…
