The housing market is heating up again in Austin, and it seems as if a number of the city’s biggest developers are starting to get back on their feet again.
While the tech industry is certainly one of the most popular industries here, Austinites are definitely looking to get their money’s worth and keep buying new houses.
In fact, according to real estate analytics firm Zillow, there are over 500 new properties listed for sale in the Austin area right now.
And it appears that they’re looking to sell.
In recent months, the Austin Downtown Association has been trying to revive the local economy and revitalize the area by putting a spotlight on the Austin-Austin corridor.
They’ve even put together a marketing campaign that’s been featured on CNN.
The latest effort, “Austin: A city of dreams,” aims to bring more people into the city and is being backed by a number, including real estate developers.
According to the marketing materials, Austin is a great place to live, work and play.
In addition to the new listings, there’s also a “Austin’s First Homes” campaign where a team of designers and designers are looking to bring back the old-school architecture.
The goal of this project is to revitalize an area that is often forgotten about and to remind people that it’s a great city for living.
“The real estate industry is going to be the key to the success of this campaign,” said Mike Stegman, founder and chief creative officer of Austin-based architectural firm Urban Architect, during an interview with Business Insider.
“We want to bring that back to the city of Austin.
We want people to be reminded of the history of the area.”
The campaign has been running for three years now, but Stegmann said that the first iteration of it was released in February of 2017.
It features several real estate companies including Urban Architect and the Austin Design Center.
They’re looking for projects with a budget between $1 million and $2 million.
“A lot of our projects are about revitalizing existing neighborhoods,” Stegmen said.
“It’s about creating a new space that people will want to be part of and will be excited to come back to.”
A lot of the new housing listings have been for affordable homes.
They include a house on the Upper Main Street for $1.25 million.
The home is located just south of a parking lot that’s set to become a new neighborhood, and the owner of the house, a family friend, said that it will be a great addition to their community.
“This will be one of our new neighbors,” said David Wessel, who owns a condo building on the street.
“I think it will make a lot of people feel welcome.”
The owner of a nearby condo said that they want to build a more modern, contemporary style condo that will give them a more urban feel.
“Our project is a little bit smaller,” said Kevin Wessel.
“But we are building a condo and that’s what we are going to do, right?”
Austin-area developer Austin Properties has already signed on to the project, and they’re using the same materials as the Urban Architect campaigns.
But Wessel said that he’s not sure what will be included in the condo’s design.
“Maybe we’re going to go with a more contemporary look,” he said.
Austin Properties is the developer behind the $5.4 billion “CityCentre” project.
The city is planning to build an entirely new high-rise building at the site of the old Austin City Hall.
In 2016, Austin City Council approved $4.5 billion for the project.
It includes a massive public plaza and public spaces.
According the CityCentre website, the city will be using the site to host an annual arts festival, a world-class library, a large park, a pedestrian plaza, and an entertainment venue.
The plaza will also house an art gallery and a skate park.
“One of the things that Austinites love about this project are the new, contemporary, and unique styles,” said Chris Burdick, senior vice president of corporate development at Austin Properties.
“And so, we think that we have a unique opportunity to take advantage of this new space.”
In addition, Burdack said that there are plans for a public plaza that will feature “a new, high-end public art installation that will be in the park for years to come.”
Austin’s Downtown Association is also involved in the project and has been promoting it with a “Community Involvement” page on the site.
“If you’ve been around Austin, you’ve seen the incredible impact that our arts and culture community has had on our community,” said Paul Loepple, president and CEO of the Downtown Association.
“There’s a lot that we want to highlight here, but it’s all about bringing people together.”
The new listings of apartments in the city are also not exactly what you would expect from a large development.
They’ll feature a
