Austin Condos - 5 Fifty Five
5 Fifty Five
555 East 5th Street
$399,000 - $3,400,000

A lot of condos claim luxury status, but the 5 Fifty-Five is truly luxury. Sitting atop the Hilton, the residences share the services provided to the hotel including 24-hour room service, maid service, laundry, porter, and hospitality officer. They will of course also have the 24 hour concierge at the private residence lobby.

The windows are quite lovely, from floor to ceiling (which is a little more than 10 feet) and wall-to-wall with stunning views of the city, capital, and hill country on the upper floors. The windows also have sections that are operable so you can get some fresh air in your home. The wall of windows invite heat from the sun so solar shades are provided to block the heat out.
The kitchens come equipped with nothing less than Wolf ovens, stainless steel appliances, and large side-by-side refrigerators. The elegant finish-out includes maple cabinetry, granite, travertine, and marble with bamboo or wood flooring.

The residences are on floors 5 & 7-9 and then floors 27-31 with the Hilton Hotel rooms sandwiched in between. Currently there are some resales as well as recently converted properties ranging from $399,000 - $3,400,000. The square feet ranges from 785 sf to 5055 sf. The 31st floor is the official penthouse floor with 3000-5000 sf with private cabanas. The 30th is not technically the penthouse floor but also has larger floor plans from 2000-4000 sf.
