The reinvention of the South Congress Avenue area over the last few years is a perfect example of urban rejuvenation at its best. SoCo, as it is affectionately known, is a great blend of quirky old Austin and hip new Austin. There is the iconic Continental Club and nowhere else keeps Austin weirder than Lucy in Disguise with Diamonds. There is the deliciously innovative Hey Cupcake that helped give rise to the trendy food-from-a-trailer revolution that has taken over the city.
Living in the SoCo area is a treat, too. 04 Lofts are modern architecture with only-in-Austin touches of limestone and steel. The rooftop terrace of this five-story mixed-use building is a great place to hang out and catch up with friends, while admiring the Austin skyline. Walk to Magnolia Café for breakfast or browse Uncommon Objects for gifts and decorating touches.
Residents of 04 Lofts can walk out the door to enjoy South Congress’s popular First Thursdays, where shops open their doors ‘til late and music fills the street. Local produce can be found at the nearby Farm-to-Market grocery store and, of course, you can’t miss the amazing view of the Capitol. The popular bumper sticker sums it up best: 78704, A Way of Life.
2020 South Congress Condos, like the area itself, has done a nice job of making the old new again. The completely redone interiors have hardwood floors, custom cabinetry and granite countertops. These pet-friendly condos are very affordable. The central courtyard with a pool is almost as enticing as the SoCo shops and restaurants out the front door. SoCo is more than just a popular downtown Austin area, it’s a state of mind.
