The Power of Convenience

Though it is not a new build or have the amenities of all the buildings downtown, the location across the street from Rowling Hall and the AT&T Center cannot be beat for class days. It is easy to get downtown via bus or uber (which I do not feel bad about taking EVERYWHERE because the rent is so cheap).

Convenient

I could not be closer to the school if it tried! There is a trade off for this low rent and convenience during the week, however in that I am not in a real neighborhood and need to uber/Bus to all my friends downtown and across town. The building itself is fine, it’s much older than the buildings downtown but it is clean and there is a security guard at night, management by day, and i head to my friends for their pools.

Greenwood Towers

Greenwood Towers is a great place to call home. Located centrally in downtown Austin, yet far enough away from the craziness. The building has a pool, laundry facilities and a bike storage room. People living here are a mix of owners and renters. The building is older but still in good condition.

Downtown Austin 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?
