Convenient!

The Park Plaza is conveniently located for almost everything you need: school, groceries, restaurants/bars and the lake/hike bike trail. A lot of MBA students end up living here or nearby so it helps with making friends too.

Really Enjoyed My Time Here!

I have really enjoyed my experience at Gables. However, the nearby train is definitely something to be aware of when you are choosing your specific apartment. We face in toward the courtyard and it isn't much of an issue. Our bathroom is also connected to the bedroom which is a bit annoying when having people over. This is not the case for all layouts though.

Great Location

Great place to live. Great location and the people are very friendly. Glad I made the decision to move here. The units are spacious and the closets have tons of room for storage. The price is on the expensive side but that's the price you pay if you want to live in Downtown Austin. I barely drive my car so that compensates a little bit.
I highly recommend this location.

Gables Park Plaza

Gables Park Plaza is in a fantastic location. Everything is close by, and on the higher floors the view of Downtown Austin is amazing. My main complaint is that many of the people that live here are inconsiderate. There are a lot of loud parties on the weekends that continue on well past midnight and some of the people that live in this building don't clean up after themselves or their pets.

Great location and complex, but ALWAYS under construction

We've lived at the Gables for almost a year. The staff are great, the building is nice and the location couldn't be better... But the place is ALWAYS under construction. I get the impression it's just shoddy construction and they'll just always be dealing with the consequences.

A few examples: there is always a construction frame walk-through somewhere, whether it's in front of the building or in the courtyard. There's also always a pulley system hanging off of the roof onto someone's balcony that's being repaired. And even in our own apartment, we're constantly having to call maintenance for leaky faucets, wobbly kitchen islands, electrical issues and plumbing problems.

Overall, it's a great place to live... But it's a good thing the maintenance guys are friendly, because you see them A LOT.

Downtown Austin Reviews

41 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
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.
Downtown Austin is very much alive, so be prepared to deal with traffic jams and noise, but I guess if you're looking to live in this area this information shouldn't come as a surprise.
Very close to Rowling Hall and the rest of the UT campus. While West Campus accommodates most of the undergrads, this particular area has more graduate students.
Though considered Downtown, it is closer to the university and west campus than the restaurant and bar scene of 6th street.
Love being downtown. Close to bars, restaurants and coffee shops. Super easy commute to any part of Austin
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.
