the-austonian-ashton-apts-8495The Austin skyline has grown dramatically in recent years, and The Austonian Condominiums are without a doubt one of the highlights of the new skyscrapers.  Owned by Moreland Properties, this 56 floor building is not only the tallest residential building in Texas, but also one of the tallest residential buildings west of the Mississippi River.   Construction began on August 31, 2007 by Benchmark Land Development and was opened to the public in June of 2010.  The building received a four star rating from the Austin Energy Green Building group, making it the only high rise residential building in the city to receive such a designation.   High end residences aren’t the only features of The Austonian. The ground level boasts some of the best retail and restaurants in the 2nd Street District.  Bar Congress is an an artisan cocktail lounge, while Second Bar & Kitchen is the more laid back counterpart.  Caffe Medici has a wide variety of espresso drinks, and for those in need of some dessert, Berry Austin is a top quality self serve yogurt shop. Located within the heart of downtown Austin, The Austonian is within walking distance of everything from Lady Bird Lake, to the bars and music venues on 6th Street, to the State Capitol.  Convenience and luxury comes at a price however, as units start at the $1.5 Million dollar level.   To see our most recent photos of The Austonian, please visit our Austin Stock Gallery Here
