This two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo at The Independent faces south, securing panoramic views of Lady Bird Lake and downtown from its floor-to-ceiling windows that let in tons of natural light.

Forget the modern finishes, ample amenities, guest suites and location—you can wake up to views of the capital city every morning if you can afford to live here.

Austin City Manager Spencer Cronk proposed a budget Friday that sets a property tax rate at the maximum limit allowable under state law without triggering a tax election.
“I’m very well aware that financial pressures are front and center on the minds of many Austinites,” he said in remarks at the Montopolis Recreation Center, citing rising costs of housing, food, and gasoline.
Project Connect is kicking off construction on the rail station by the Q2 stadium.
Known as the McKalla Station, it’ll be located on Delta Drive and include two regular platforms, plus a special event platform. The latter will serve as a way of increasing options in the area around North Burnet Road.
It’ll be some time before Austin FC fans can use the station to head to a game. Slated for a late 2023 opening, the station will be part of the Red Line running from Leander to the downtown convention center.
When voters approved Project Connect—a public transit plan to add light rail lines, a downtown subway, an expanded bus system, and an all-electric fleet—in November 2020, the estimated cost was $7.1 billion. Due to inflation pressures and supply chain constraints, estimates rose to $10.3 billion in the spring. Austonia contacted CapMetro about whether those estimates have changed and did not hear back by the time of publication.
Implementing the part of the plan focused on the Red Line involves the introduction of quiet zones and the creation of the Broadmoor station for the Domain area. Plus, the use of double tracking allows for higher frequency service since trains can move in either direction at the same time rather than sharing a single track.
On Monday evening, transportation leaders with Project Connect are hosting a groundbreaking for the station. In attendance will be Mayor Steve Adler, Travis County Commissioner Jeff Travillion and Texas lawmakers.
