The Austonian is freaking huge
So there is a another new Austin condo development called the Austonian. All I have been hearing is how there is going to be an indoor dog park on the 10th floor with an scented self-cleaning dog toilet. Apparently the toilet has an aroma that attracts dogs to it. There has been so much talk about the dog park that it has been lost that the Austonian is, well, freaking huge. Here is a picture of what the Austonian will look like and how it will alter the Austin skyline. That little thing in the background is Austin's current tallest structure, the Frost Tower at a mere 33 stories. It almost looks quaint.
The 195 units in the Austonian are not going to be cheap coming in at 550k to 3.8 million. One thing that is interesting is the Austonian has decided to have rather large units. Most of the condos in downtown Austin tend to average around 1000 square feet. Most of the condos in the Austonian are around 1500 to 4500 square feet. The top few floors are comprised of one unit each and come in at 8784 square feet. The Austonian is betting that there are a decent number of people that want larger condos and are willing to pay quite a bit for them.
