Neighborhood Market Watch: What It Costs to Buy in Downtown Austin

About what you'd expect in Westlake. But smaller.

In an ongoing series for Curbed Austin, real-estate analytics site NeighborhoodX is taking a close look at sales prices ranges in different neighborhoods.

This week, the analytics site took a look at Downtown, which is generally considered to range from East Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard to Lady Bird Lake (north to south), with the eastern and western boundaries being I-35 and North Lamar Boulevard, respectively.

In the past, NeighborhoodX has looked at the range of Downtown asking prices in Austin, but only from East Sixth Street to Lady Bird Lake. This chart encompasses the entire Downtown area.

Downtown Austin has an average current listing price of $562/square foot., although the properties that contribute to this average range from $349/square foot (The Brown Building, 710 Colorado Street #J5) to $1,658/square foot (The Austonian—surprise!—210 Lavaca Street #3701).

To put these numbers in context, the only other Austin neighborhood of the ones analyzed by NeighborhoodX that has a comparable range is West Lake Hills, where the average in April was $401/square foot, but ranged from $244-1,389 per square foot.
