Good location, no amenities

The apartment is in the Barton Springs/Zilker neighborhood so it is close to downtown and school and located on a major street. However, unless you plan to dine at fancy restaurants frequently or use Zilker/Town Lake everyday, the location is not that useful.

There are few quick serve restaurants (P. Terry's and Schlotzskys). Whole Foods and Trader Joes just across the river.

The pool is very small and does not get sun that much due to location. The gym is tiny and has old machines, a non functioning TV, and no hygienic wipes. There is no indoors common area for hosting guests.

Maintenance staff does a good job but I've never had as many maintenance issues with an apartment as I have had here (bad construction I guess), and they are too busy to really maintain the cleanliness of the building (trash chutes and areas are very dirty and there is broken glass leading from them to where the trash is picked up).

The management is attentive and friendly and responds to requests.

Lots of people have dogs but I would not characterize the apartment as a good one for dogs.

Overall this is marketed and priced as a nice apartment building and while the units are nice and it's in a desirable location, I don't believe it is a good value.

Great Location and Good Value Amenities

Enjoy living here and the location is perfect for Austin working professionals and young couples. Units are fairly spacious and good value for the rent levels. While you pay more living closer to downtown, having all the restaurants and bars on South Congress within walking distance makes it worthwhile. Management and maintenance is typically very responsive.

Great Location!

For the same amount of money you can afford a studio apartment, likely the same distance from downtown; however, The State House has the added benefit of the eclectic South Congress community. Only downfall is lack of amenities (no coffee, small gym)

About South River City

Situated just south of Lady Bird Lake lies South River City, commonly referred to as Travis Heights. This trendy, upscale neighborhood’s history dates back to the late 1800s, and development took off here in the 1920s. While beautiful new apartment complexes line the area, many small, older bungalow...

South River City Reviews

10 reviews
Great neighborhood to visit, just alright to live in.

- There are lots of restaurants but few are quick serve and many are pricey, so they get old fast.
- Very nice to be next to Zilker and Town Lake, but we don't use it as often as we could. - Being close to a large park that hosts lots of large events and located at a major intersection (Barton Springs and S. Lamar), there are lots of drunks, bad drivers, litterers, and homeless people. Also, lots of aggressive bikers illegally using the sidewalk which makes walking your dog a nuisance.
This complex is south of the river, and south of all the shops/restaurants on South Congress. This makes it close enough to walk to those venues if you want to, but it's also nice to be a little bit separate to the really crowded area.
It is convenient to getting on Town Lake and going down town. Within a few miles of HEB and Trader Joe's. There are a few sketchy people but if you keep your stuff locked up or in your apt you should be fine.
Cute area - close to South Congress / Downtown
Area is great!
Most of MBAs stay north of the river for socializing.
Safe neighborhood.
Lots of families.
Close to one convenience store/gas station.
Close to one bar/restaurant. 5 minute drive to South Congress/Downtown Very quiet. Close to I-35 highway. Pet friendly. Walkable.
Living on South Congress is awesome... close to work and social life.
