For downtown Austin condo shoppers, there is no better way to survey downtown living options than the annual DANA Downtown Living Tour. DANA just announced the details for the upcoming 2008 tour. Here is the announcement:
The Downtown Austin Neighborhood Association (DANA) is holding its 5th Annual Downtown Living Tour Sunday, October 19th, from noon to 5 pm. The event showcases homes and the benefits of living in downtown Austin.
The Downtown Living Tour attracts hundreds of attendees each year and funds DANA-sponsored activities and charities. Participants take walking tours of downtown residences and retail and entertainment spots.
This year’s tour will feature the 360 Condominiums, Gables West, Austonian, and other residences. Second Street retailers will also be catering to the tour’s attendees, and a happy hour (5 – 7 pm) with complimentary food and beverages will follow the tour at the Belmont. On the eve of the event, VIP ticket holders will enjoy music, food, and drinks poolside at the 360 Condominiums.
Tickets are available through DANA’s web site at www.downtownaustin.org/DLT.html. Prices range from $15 for the Tour and $30 for the Tour and VIP party. The Austin Parks Foundation will receive a portion of the proceeds from this year’s tour.
DANA’s mission is to improve the quality of life for those who live, work and play downtown. DANA influences decisions that affect downtown, educates and listens to residents and stakeholders about downtown and issues that affect them, and fosters a downtown community through social events.
