SOCO’s Sister: South First Street!
If you are in love with South Congress, but are trying to find a place to live that is more peaceful and has chill vibes, look no further than South 1st Street! We love this street to live on because it has SO much to offer and we consider it the laid back sister of South Congress. From restaurants like Sway and Elizabeth Street Cafe to the low key South Austin Trailer Park Eatery and Bouldin Creek Cafe, this is every foodie’s dream location! The shopping and artwork on this street too will give you all the artistic feels. We particularly love Roadside Relics and the Art for the People Gallery. There is also South 1st Friday’s, which is an art walk along the street! Along the street, there are plenty of trees and greenery too which will make you feel like you’re not in the hustle and bustle of the city, although you will be in walking distance to downtown! There are plenty of trails and parks nearby too, if you need to get a quick workout in such as Lady Bird Lake, and a park next to the Palmer Events Center. Who knew one street could have so much character, and also has great properties to live in!
One fancy property that we love is located on the end of South 1st street has all the amenities you would ever need! If you are looking for a place to feel immediately comfortable but also pampered, this apartment complex has it all! In these units there is wood flooring, spa inspired bathrooms (with a walk in shower!), island kitchens, balconies, and beautiful views of downtown Austin! There is a gym on site with a boxing studio which is why this property stands out as well! Outside features include a resort style pool, bocce ball, and ping pong courts outside. Don’t worry about the heat, there is plenty of oak trees to keep you cool and shaded all day long!

We love how close to downtown this apartment complex is for an affordable price! This property has wood flooring throughout, walk in closets, balconies with downtown views, and some units even have fireplaces for that cozy feel for ya’ll. This is literally right around the corner from Barton Springs Road and the Palmer Events Center. It’s in walking distance and biking distance if you want to skip the traffic and bike to work, or adventure downtown! This apartment complex is perfect if you are looking to kick back and relax and enjoy the laid back vibes in Austin. We love the pool at this property, because it overlooks the amazing view of downtown Austin. Also, there are places on the property to picnic and barbecue. Don’t stress out about if your dog can live here or not, because they have absolutely no breed restrictions and it is super pet friendly!

Think of this location as your resort oasis on South 1st where you can kick back and chill after a long work week.
