Austin apartments near all the hot spots!

People who don’t live in Austin but read about it on the web practically worship this city.  Everyone has had that out-of-town friend that rolls in with a list of hot spots they’re dying to check out.  For those of you who want nothing to do with these attractions and all the nonsense, let us show you how to live like a local and pick an apartment near the places you and your friends who actually live here want to hang out at.

But some of you just can’t get enough of these must-see’s that your out-of-town friends rave about or maybe you’re new to ATX and just seeing a lot of these for the first time!  Either way, we’ve got you covered!  Here are our favorite Austin hot spots and the apartments we love nearby!

ZILKER/BARTON SPRINGS POOL

Minutes away from the ever-popular river/pool and all the nature-y glory of Zilker.  You could basically kayak to work.  Maybe, we can’t quite guarantee it, but probably.  These apartments has an 8,000 square foot star deck with panoramic skyline views and is located on low-traffic Toomey Road, which means easy walkability to downtown!  You can be close to the noise of the city while still living in a quiet, park-side location. Plus, you can save your money and skip buying tickets to ACL because you can just listen to the concert from the 8th floor star deck!

MOUNT BONNELL

Just a 7-8 minute drive to Mount Bonnell, giving you endless ability for adventure at the drop of a hat.  Granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, custom-framed mirrors, 9ft ceilings, and wood floors!  Resort style pool, BBQ area, on-site storage units, fire it, and state-of-the-art fitness center.  Only 3 miles away from the Town Lake hike and bike trail and Zilker!

STUBB’S/FRANKLIN BBQ

These apartments literally back right up to Franklin Barbeque and are less than half of a mile away from Stubb’s.  Signing a lease here means you have easy access to not only some of the best BBQ in the 512, but a music venue favorite that will probably be hosting at least 3 or 4 of your all-time favorites at some point in your lease term.  Plenty of green initiatives like car charging stations, oversized energy efficient windows, water saving low flow fixtures, and a dedicated resident recycling program.  Amazing sky lounge for downtown and capitol views!

THE CAPITOL

Okay, to be honest, these aren’t the closest apartments to the Capitol, but they are SO beautiful!!!  We are all heart eyes over these, and they’re only 1 mile away from the Capitol for all of your history buff, Texas-loving friends who come to visit!  These brand new apartments have unique butcher block kitchen islands, granite countertops with tile backsplashes, walk-in closets with wood shelves, and washer/dryer in every home!  Gaze proudly at your city on the rooftop deck and sleep easy at night because this building is LEED certified, meaning you can worry less about your carbon footprint.
