BartonPlace – ATX

Granite counters, stainless steel appliances, big windows, Italian, well anything Italian – all buzzwords in the luxury condominium glossary. It’s a tad odd that the descriptive language of the single most expensive thing the reader is likely to own, all too often, sounds as exciting as a soup can label. And occupying some of them feels like the inside of the soup can itself. But wait, before you swear off soup, remember, there’s processed, condensed cream of sawdust and there’s also your grandmother’s chicken soup. BartonPlace in Austin is your …

Plan resumes to build massive Marriott

Plans to build Austin’s largest downtown hotel are apparently back on the table, according to reports.
White Lodging Corp. said last year it would shelve plans for a 1,000-room, $185-million Marriott hotel on Congress Avenue and Second Street. But an Austin American-Statesman report quoted officials saying construction will begin in about nine months.
The story also said the city could waive $4.3 million in fees for the project. That’s a pretty big chunk of change. A city spokesman confirmed the possible agreement, but not the amount. The council is expected to finish …

The price per square foot and HOA dues are very reasonable. …

I’d keep off the grass if there were any.

With dozens upon dozens of days without a drop of precipitation or respite from 100+ degree oppression, Austin is hot. Lovers of nightlife, motorcycles, music, movies, art, gaming, county’s best bbq and sushi, public schools, highways, bikepaths, pet freindly policies… you get it, Austin is popular (hot and popular being interchangeable American slang… wordplay is more fun when it doesn’t have to be explained). But these days it’s just hot. No euphemisms, no winks, just sweating like an Olympic weightlifter on a lift he didn’t make.
While there were firework bans …
