819 E. 9th Street, Austin, TX 78702 - Skyline lofts are a great buy in the downtown Austin condo market

New Austin Condo developer InterUrban Group is building this really cool project called Skyline Lofts. Skyline is close to Town Lake, the Capitol, University of Texas campus, Sixth Street, the warehouse district, Whole Foods and even to the Austin airport. At Skyline, you're in the heart of Austin's film, art, and music scene, in a neighborhood bustling with Eastside energy and diversity. It also has some of the best views of downtown Austin. Those views are really really nice, but i think Star Riverside is a little better because it is on the waterfront.
I know the developers personally and have acess to pre-construction reservations...

Waller 41 - 41 Waller Street, Austin TX 78702 - East Austin condos near downtown and Lake Lady Bird

I really like east Austin. There are several projects that I've been watching over there too. Waller 41 is one of them.

It's cute, spacious and in the heart of everything. One of the more interesting features is the lack of a tub replaced by a stand up shower that you'll have to see for yourself. It works, but something feels a little off.

Otherwise for under $300K, you get a pretty good buy.

Bridges on the Park - 210 Lee Barton, Austin, TX 78704 - South Austin condos

When you drive by the Bridges on the Park, the "sold banners" leave you with the feeling that everything is gone but that is not true. I visited today and got the scoop that 40 units are left.

Here is the kitchen and bath layouts but there are a lot of upgrades so don't expect all of this to come in at the modest $400 a sq. ft. entry price.

What I like bets about the project - great location by Hike and Bike Trail.
WhatI like least about the project - No nieghborhood charm
