East Austin Development

It’s no secret that East Austin is booming with development, both residentially and commercially. But what is really happening in the submarket next door? As the area has seen drastic changes over the past several years, land prices are rising, development projects are coming to fruition, and the options for office leasing are becoming more diverse as well as expensive. East Austin was once marked by high crime and low housing prices but has developed into a place with the original quirky character of Austin still in-tact and proves to be a cultural haven for the up and coming generation of Austinites. The type of tenants you will see in this submarket are high-tech and rapidly growing companies in Austin, sometimes looking for lower pricing than the CBD, but yearning for a place near Austin’s buzzing downtown. The secret is out, below you can see what has recently delivered, projects under construction and proposed developments as well as what the East Austin boom has done to rates in the area.
