While dozens of high rise condo projects rise from the ground in downtown Austin, interesting condo developments are also nearing completion in other parts of the city. One notable project is the SoCo Lofts which is nearing completion in the red hot South Congress district. This 69-unit condo development with ground-floor retail is located near Saint Edwards University. By building outside the core of downtown, the project has been able to hit a price point that is much lower than any current downtown project. With 616 SF units starting at $169,900 and 2-bedroom units starting at $289,900, the project is at least 25% less expensive than the new downtown projects.
The SoCo Lofts are not alone: a number of interesting projects are currently under development on South Congress, South Lamar, and on the East side across I-35 from downtown.
Here is a full profile of the project:
