It’s no secret that the demand for downtown Austin living is growing. However, information on sales of new condos has been closely held. This had the tendency of just emboldening skeptics. Now, the data presented here should allay lingering doubts about downtown Austin condo pricing.

Below is a chart of the monthly aggregate sales data for the new-luxury highrises in downtown Austin, including: Austonian, Four Seasons, W Hotel Residences, and Spring Condos.

Over the past six months we can see the average new construction condo is 1,526ft and sells for $897,064. AustinTowers’ sister site, Downtown Austin Blog, recently shared that for new-luxury construction only 172 units remain, and that we’re on pace to sell the bulk of those over the next year.
