The Brown Building, a modest but lovely, landmarked Art Deco building built in 1938 at the corner of Seventh and Colorado streets, has long been converted from its original office use to residential lofts. Luckily, it many of its original features—including its rich, marbled lobby, high ceilings, and original terrazzo floors—are intact.
Like most of the units, this condo has big, rollout windows and views, along with the old-school, industrial loft features such as raw concrete ceilings and beams and exposed plumbing and electrical conduits.
The back corner unit measures 1,282 square feet and has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Features included track lighting, a utility closet with washer/dryer connections, and a kitchen features stainless steel appliances and an island/breakfast bar. It comes with one reserved parking space as well as access to building amenities such as the gym and roof deck.
Asking $599,000, 710 Colorado Street, Unit 5I is listed by Lily Clason at Realty Austin.
