Austin Gets Funky & Luxe!
Adding to Austin’s already very dynamic and fascinating make-up, two of the newest developing areas bring one-part funky and one-part luxe!
Austin’s Eastside keeps Austin weird with art studios, eclectic restaurants, cozy wine bars, and the now well-known Eastside Studio Tour. The area has slowly changed over the years, boasting culture aplenty just east of downtown. Here you can find delicious vegan Mexican food, vintage LPs and 45’s, edgy bookstores and the French Legation Museum — just to name a handful!
The 2nd Street District has brought luxury to Austin like never before. Located north of Lady Bird Johnson Lake and along the south edge of downtown, it links two important civic destinations — the new City Hall and the Convention Center Complex. Within easy walking distance, visitors can find upscale cuisine, high-end boutiques, designer home goods and pampering spas.
Fusing the Old with the New!
The Seaholm Power Plant site is a "future urban oasis on the Southwestern edge of downtown Austin.” The long-dormant power plant site, built in the 1950s, is transforming into place for Austinites to live, work, play and shop. The 7.8-acre site will feature a office space, retail shops, condos, a boutique hotel, special event space and a view of Lady Bird Johnson lake. The completed development is expected to create more than 200 jobs and produce $2 million a year in tax revenue.
