Great Building in Heart of Downtown

Have loved the location being in the middle of downtown. The management of the building is very responsive and helpful, and they have great security measures in place (for packages, too).

Ashton is Awesome

Great building, lovely finishes, great staff, love having the hike and bike trail right across the street and tons of restaurants and shops and Austin nightlife right outside of the door. Plus the pool desk is amazing with a great view of the River and the bridges!

Ashton

The Ashton has very nice units and is located in great location right in the heart of 2nd street distruct. The Ashton has a beautiful pool that overlooks Lady Bird Lake, 2 resident lounges, a conference room, business center, movie screening room and a brand new gym. There is 24 hour security and a 24 hour doorman. i have no complaints about the Ashton, but the average age does tend to skew older (50+). I'm in my 20's and was hoping to be able to form friendships with my neighbors, but given that the average age is so much higher - its tricky! Great building overall, but recommended for an older crowd.

Great view, great location

The units are definitely nice and they have a killer view from the pool, but the rent is absolutely outrageous. Everything about this property is just simply stunning. Keep up the great work and thank you for taking care of your resident. Kudos to everything you do.

Love the Ashton

It is a fantastic place to live at! However, be prepared to pay deeply for it. Only live here if you want to live near all of the downtown living.

If you live up on the top half of floors, you will be treated to the beautiful views of Austin. It may be noisy due to all of the construction going on but I don't mind.

Downtown Austin Reviews

65 reviews
If you don't want to be downtown, there is really no reason to pay the premium to be here and if you really do want to be downtown and don't want to pay up, look at the 404 Rio Grande. If you have a roommate though and don't mind paying a bit more(~1500-1600 per person) and want an upscale experience, the Bowie is great. I don't know about the "neighborhood", but being downtown has been much more enjoyable than I had expected
Downtown is a great landing spot if you are moving from a large city. I moved from DC and found the downtown Austin scene to be immediately familiar.

I would recommend it if you have no ties to Austin and don't really have an idea or preference on where to live.
Awesome location! I love being downtown because that's where a lot of the good restaurants and bars are. I walk or scooter to a lot of places and don't have to worry about taking an uber or finding parking.
Can run into a few homeless people but on the whole it's a great area. Easy to walk to everything in the downtown area.
Rainey is a TON of fun on the weekends. The bar scene is great and it's a very young crowd looking to have fun. Keep in mind you're living in a "party" neighborhood, which can be both good and bad. The real downside is the lack of food options. It's only a 20 minute walk to work and is right next to Lady Bird Lake and the Ann Butler walking trail. I also feel pretty safe there.
This is a great neighborhood. It's not as hectic as it may sound. There are tons of restaurants, bars, and shops nearby. We have Trader Joe's and Whole Foods within a short walk (Trader Joe's is 42 seconds away). There are so many bus routes that it's easy to get anywhere (including school). It's a little pricey, of course, being downtown, but I thought it was worth it.

The river, with the running/walking trail, and kayak rental spots is super closeby.
No nearby major stores or anything close within walking distance besides a few restaurants and bars. As I said before, some people may like living on Rainey, I don't think its necessarily a great place to live, maybe just a great place to go out occasionally. One perk -- close highway access on IH-35
Best neighborhood. Have I mentioned the Trader Joe's?
