Downtown

The iconic Texas State Capitol stands as a historic landmark.

Downtown Austin is the vibrant heart of the Capital city, embodying a dynamic blend of culture, commerce, and entertainment. The iconic Texas State Capitol, a prime example of Italian Renaissance architecture, stands as a historic landmark. The Capitol View Corridors are a series of legal restrictions aimed at preserving views of the Capital Dome from various points around the city, despite unprecedented growth and development of new high rises.

There is more to downtown than the Capital or even the University of Texas campus. Austin is also the live music capital of the world. Austin City Limits and Sixth Street boast storied music scenes, while the historic Rainey Street District is known for its charming bungalow-style bars, food truck parks, and eateries. Lady Bird Lake, with its picturesque hike-and-bike trail, provides a recreational oasis amidst an urban landscape. With its proximity to major tech companies, universities, and cultural institutions, Downtown Austin is a hub of innovation, arts, education, development, and creativity.

Growth in downtown Austin is astounding with a record 20 high rises already under construction and 30 set for future development. These projects range from hotels, both residential condos and apartments, and mixed-use projects that combine office space with retail and residential all in one.
