Let’s say you’re ready to live the good life in Austin, but for one reason or another, you’re not looking to buy property of your own. You’re in luck - Austin has no shortage of apartments that will put you in the height of luxury! Whether you want to be right in the beating heart of downtown or you’re looking for some distance from the hustle and bustle, here are ten luxury apartments in Austin that really stand out.
101 Colorado Street - Rent starting at $2,731/month
As far as downtown Austin apartments go, Ashton is hard to beat. Located in the vibrant 2nd Street District, you’ll never be far from amazing dining and nightlife options. In the mood to catch a movie? Good news - you’re just a five-minute walk away from Violet Crown Cinema, where you can see the latest arthouse releases.
A relative newcomer on the west side of downtown, The Bowie has already become a major name in Austin luxury. Their list of amenities includes two outdoor decks, a coffee bar, electric vehicle charging stations, and a rooftop infinity pool. And if you’re all about eating healthy, just walk one block north to Whole Foods!
214 Barton Springs Road - Rent starting at $2,555/month
Luxury apartments in Austin aren’t limited to one downtown cluster, though. The Catherine sits just across Lady Bird Lake to the south, but it’s still in manageable distance of all that downtown Austin has to offer. After you’ve checked out the private Sky Lounge, you can make the short walk to the Long Center. And when October comes, you won’t be far from Zilker Park and all the Austin City Limits festivities.
3050 Tamarron Boulevard - Rent starting at $1,248/month
Looking to get even farther away from downtown? The Cliffs at Barton Creek are tucked close to the Barton Creek Greenbelt, perfect for anyone who needs a mix of nature and high-end living. But don’t worry, you’ll also be a short drive from the Barton Creek Square mall for all your shopping needs.
111 Sandra Muraida Way - Rent starting at $2,495/month
Gables Park Tower serves as the border between North and South Lamar, so you’ll never be far from your Austin destination of choice. You’ll have easy access to Lady Bird Lake hiking and biking trails, too. And as far as convenience goes, you’ll be within walking distance of places like Trader Joe’s and True Food Kitchen.
110 San Antonio Street - Rent starting at $2,084/month
Like Gables Park Tower, Northshore is also a Seaholm District mainstay. With its convenient location, you’ll get the perfect combination of lakefront and downtown views. Enjoy a private cabana alongside the infinity pool, or take a short walk to places like Ballet Austin, Lamberts Downtown Barbecue, and 3TEN ACL Live.
Overture is unique on this list due to their status as an over-55 community. If you’re looking for active senior life with an emphasis on luxury, look no further. With a location firmly in the heart of the Domain, you’ll be surrounded by dining options. Need to get around town? No problem! Overture has a partnership with Lyft, and they’ll be happy to schedule a ride for you at the front desk.
615 West 7th Street - Rent starting at $2,066/month
Seven’s place among elite downtown Austin apartments is well-earned. Its location puts you right in the lively West 6th district, so you’ll never be at a loss for entertainment. Every single residence has a balcony, meaning you’ll never miss out on the downtown view. And if you’re trying to stay healthy, you’ll love the 24-hour fitness studio and complimentary Whole Foods delivery service.
There are plenty of luxury apartments in Austin, but this is one of the few that can put you right on coveted Rainey Street real estate. If you’re looking for a more grown-up answer to Sixth Street’s boisterous nightlife, Rainey is likely what you’ve been missing. SkyHouse Austin looms high above the plentiful bar and restaurant options, all while offering resident lounges and a beautiful rooftop pool with views of the Austin skyline.
Convenience is the name of the game at Whitley. Along with the usual luxury amenities (rooftop pool, yoga area, dog washing station), you’ll also find Royal Blue Grocery and Uncle Julio’s Mexican Food on the first floor of your building. And of course, the advantageous downtown location means you’re only three blocks away from Sixth Street nightlife.
