background

Austin's downtown is an evolving expression of New Urbanism, the creation of pedestrian friendly communities where residents can enjoy easy access to recreation, shops, cafes, galleries and nightlife. There are a myriad of housing options, from converted turn of the century lofts to upscale and sophisticated high rise condominiums with hotel amenities. Residents can find almost everything they need for daily urban living within the boundaries of downtown Austin -- Martin Luther King Boulevard in the North, Town Lake in the South, IH-35 in the East and Lamar Boulevard in the West. van Heuven Properties was downtown Austin's first residential brokerage company, and their intimate knowledge of "everything downtown Austin" makes VHP agents an invaluable resource for buying or selling downtown Austin real estate.
