Over the past decade, downtown Austin has grown significantly, thanks to overall population growth and the strategic efforts of the City of Austin and the Downtown Austin Alliance. Earlier this month, the Downtown Austin Alliance (DAA), which advocates for ongoing change and improvement to the downtown Austin area, released their 2014 Annual Report, which offers a look at what developments have been made in the past year as well as a look at what is yet to come.
Year after year, downtown Austin is one of the top spots in the city to experience the holiday season, as the streets are filled with lights, music and festive celebrations, all hallmarked by a unique Central Texas flair. No matter what holiday one celebrates, there are plenty of events and activities taking place within walking distance from The Austonian throughout the next month that showcase the best of what the holiday season has to offer.
The thriving art community in Austin tends to stay under the radar, but upcoming events on the horizon shine the well-deserved spotlight on the incredible talent right here in the city. Increasingly, efforts are being made to invite the community to engage with the art being created here, as well as to incorporate local art into unexpected places in the city.
Austinites are no strangers to construction cranes. Over the past few years, increasingly more buildings have been erected in the heart of downtown Austin, transforming both the shape of the skyline and the culture of living in downtown Austin. The Austonian was one of the first projects to open during this period of growth, and it maintains its status as the tallest building in Austin, with unimpeded views of the rest of the city, Lady Bird Lake and the Central Texas Hill Country. As such, residents of The Austonian luxury condominiums have a front row seat to watch the city as it grows, and will be in a prime location to enjoy all the new life these changes bring.
This weekend, Austin welcomes thousands of racing fans from around the world for the Formula 1 U.S. Grand Prix at Circuit of the Americas. Though the race itself takes place on Sunday, the global event features some of the most exclusive parties and luxury opportunities in the city, beginning today.
