Pros/Cons

Pros:
1) The apartment is in an amazing location; right across the street from Trader Joe's, and across the street from the flagship Whole Foods.
2) We have a lot of space, and my roommate and myself each have a bathroom.

Cons:
1) The train that runs by is super loud, and definitely takes some getting used to.
2) The bus isn't always timely, and can be infrequent on the weekends/evenings
3) It's unfurnished, but that's common downtown

Good location

Great location but the train is loud and the apartment is your typical big box complex. Multiple service requests (but always prompt about fixing things), forgetting to let you know you have packages at front office, mandatory valet garbage charge, clowe to the train, but great between two grocery stores and access to all west 6th st bars

Gables West Avenue

This apartment complex isn't bad, nut for what you pay for living downtown, it is not worth it.
They don't have a concierge service and on the weekend it is hard to get your packages because the office has only one person and it is close for tours. The property is old and looks like it's falling apart. Their customer service isn't great and would not recommend Gables West Avenue to any future Facebookers; I can't wait for my lease to be up so that I can move elsewhere.

Gables West Ave

Best thing about the apartment is the location. It's near Whole Foods in DT Austin and walkable to most places downtown. The management is pretty unresponsive and apathetic and the rent increases a lot between leasing periods. They also change their policies (parking, visitors, safety, package reception, pool usage) a lot which is disorienting. Having DT parking is a great perk.

Wonderful Downtown Building

One of the best values for a downtown location. My particular unit is a 1 bedroom but also has a loft area that can be used as a den/bedroom/office. The building was recently upgraded and many of the finishes are now inline with other buildings downtown. The management has been really great to work with so far. The one downside would be that the train can be a little noisy - but I knew this going in (my unit faces the tracks).

Quiet apartment, can't beat location

The apartment complex is quiet at night, as there is little foot traffic that goes by. The trains can be loud if you face that side of the street (but someone who previously lived in a city is probably used to that noise!). Unbelievable location: one or two blocks from West 6th, directly across from Trader Joe's, one block from Whole Foods. The staff is super friendly and pets are welcomed.

Close to West 6th, Whole Foods, Gym!

West Avenue is a wonderful apartment complex if you wish to be near the market district or West 6th. We are next to Pure Austin Fitness, Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, and walking distance to many amazing restaurants and bars. Violet Crown Cinema is also walking distance. In addition, Town Lake trail is within a few hundred feet!

Great spot

Best decision I could have made. Great location in close walking distance to everything. If you're okay with the price, I would highly recommend the place. The amenities are awesome with great view over Downtown and the Lake. Neighbors are very friendly and close to most bars.

Perfect DT living

I love living here! It's so close to all my needs and the community has this lofty feel that's different than anything else in Austin.
Trader Joe's across the street, plenty of restaurants, coffee, and bars close by. Plenty of street parking for when friends come over and right near the running trails. Everything I need!!

Pros: free resident parking, great floor plans, clean community, great office staff.
Cons: Super small gym with minimal equipment.

Downtown Austin Reviews

47 reviews
Downtown Austin is where all of your friends that live elsewhere come Thursday-Saturday nights. Depending on where you are in downtown, you are never more than a few blocks away from great food or nightlife options, and there is always plenty going on. Plus, you have tons of public transport options, easy access to Lady Bird Lake and the trail system, and the new library is a great spot to study.
If you can afford it, Downtown Austin is the location to be. Love the easy access to great grocery stores as well as the Town Lake running trail. You'll also be close to the all the bars and night life where Think and Drinks take place
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.
So close to west 6th street for a more vibrant scene.
Very close to two super markets in Trader Joes and Whole Foods. Solid restuarants in walking distance and being close to the river is amazing.
I really like the neighboorhood, its super walkable, lady bird lake is literally across the street. You can walk to 6th street, and rainey with ease. There are a plethora of options close
Vibrant neighborhood with an amazing selection of bars, shops and restaurants. Highly walk-able with almost everything you could need available within a 10-15 min walk.
This part of austin (Seaholm District) is growing fast and has many things a family or young person might need. With the opening of Trader Joes it is easy to live downtown and not have a car. Crime seems low for being so close to the downtown area.
I can walk to class! And there are fast food restaurants along Guadaloupe and walk to the new Dobie Target. I'm right on the 800s bus lines.
