If you want luxury in Austin, Don't Pass Up the Austonian
By now most homebuyers know that Austin is one of the hottest places to live in the southwest. It is a bustling capitol city, known for its live music, friendly natives and higher level of education per capita than most cities. Austin is also rapidly becoming a Mecca for professionals seeking a sophisticated yet warm urban living space. There are a growing number of luxury condos to choose from but when our clients say they’re shopping for a luxury condo in Austin, we make sure to take them to The Austonian. This is the tallest residential tower in Texas and exceeds the expectations of the most discriminating buyers.
The Austonian is an elegantly upscale high-rise condo community that sits right one block from the northern shore of Lady Bird Lake, steps from the popular lakeside hike and bike trails – right in the heart of the newly renovated 2nd Street District in downtown Austin. It’s a spectacular 56-story modern structure with high floor-to-ceiling glass walls, a stunning collection of museum-quality contemporary Texas art and some of the finest amenities available anywhere – including no less than 40,000 square feet of pools, outdoor terraces and rooftop decks with fabulous city and lake views.
White marble flooring, recessed lighting and cathedral ceilings grace the white granite entry. First floor retail includes the acclaimed and prestigious Congress restaurant, the Congress Bar and the more casual Second Bar & Kitchen. Caffe Medici is also part of the retail family that serves these luxury Austin condos. Superbly crafted expresso drinks, premier dining and artisan cocktails are all just a high speed elevator ride away. Residents also enjoy 24-hour valet and concierge services and a dedicated Director of Event Planning to assist residences with their exclusive use of event spaces/amenities in the building.
From top to bottom, the Austonian offers an exquisite living experience. The penthouses have 360 degree city, lake and hill country views and more than 8,100 square feet of private residential spaces and expansive outdoor terraces Together with superbly appointed interiors, it’s no wonder that these homes are among the highest price per square foot in downtown Austin. Residents on the lower floors also have great city views and floor-to-ceiling glass exterior walls. Floor plans range from 1 bedroom units with just over 1,200 square feet to 3 bedroom residences with up to more than 5,000 square feet. If the standard, top-of-the-line finishes, materials and flooring aren’t luxurious enough for your tastes, a limited number of residences at the Austonian have been set aside as Designed Interiors, curated by Greer Interior Design and the world renown Ryan Street and Associates.
Austin has several other luxury high rises like the Four Seasons Residences, which sits atop the hotel and allows residents use of all the building’s amenities including its world class spa, restaurants, catering and room service. See our high rise page for some other ideas.
