Not only does the development have direct access to Austin’s employment base, but also the City has identified this area as a desired urban residential neighborhood. An exceptional location amid high-end residential and retail, the Austin CBD, Shoal Creek and Town Lake gives this project a unique advantage not readily duplicated by competing projects. "

Brown Building

Another building from Austin, Texas that I would like to write about is The Brown Building a 10 story residential and office tower located at 710 Colorado St..  This building was completed in 1938 and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1997.  The building was home to many significant companies throughout 20th century Austin, including the holding corporation for the Lyndon Johnson family.

The Texas Broadcasting Corporation operated from the building for many years around World War II, counting among its employees humorist Cactus Pryor and future governor John Connally.  A reserved garage parking spot is assigned to each loft. The secured Brown Building parking garage is attached to the building.  The building’s elegant lobby features Art Deco ornamentation with pink, green and yellow terrazzo floors and rose marble walls. To either side of the lobby are the Brown Bar and Gumbos restaurant. There is a small fitness center in the building solely for the use of residents.  It is a short walk to all that downtown Austin has to offer – including restaurants, cafes, bars, clubs, shops, theatres, museums, Town Lake and many special events.

The state capital and downtown office buildings are also a short walk away. The University of Texas and other sites within or in close proximity to downtown Austin can also be reached by the free Capital Metro Dillo public transportation service.  The Brown building in the mid 1900’s was known as the Wall Street of Austin , it played host to the movers and shakers of Austin finance. Fortunes were made and lost in the elaborate art deco styled offices. This was where politics were practiced – with the gloves off. Now considered an historical site, the homeowners in The Brown Building reaps the additional benefit of a reduction in their real estate taxes. Sometimes it pays to get old. 

The building may be historic, but the amenities enjoyed by the residents are anything but antique. Starting with the designer kitchens with their custom mill work cabinetry and enhanced appliances and continuing to the roof top sun deck with spectacular skyline views, the Brown Building is the place to be. And if you don’t get enough exercise taking in the shopping and dining opportunities within walking distance of the front door, there is an exercise room in the building.

If you decide it is time for a night out, you don’t even have to leave the building. Gumbo’s full service New Orleans style restaurant is located on the first floor of The Brown Building. After dinner you can enjoy a relaxing drink and a little entertainment in The Brown Bar – also on the first floor. It doesn’t get more convenient than this.

 The Brown Building has 90 units on 10 floors the building is 120 feet tall , units range from 638 - 2029 SF units are 1 and 2 bedrooms
