Most buyers new to the downtown Austin condo market focus on the super luxury condominiums currently under construction including W Hotel Residences, Four Seasons as well as the Austonian Condos; however, Milago Condominiums (completed in 2006 approximately)  is a often overlooked alternative to downtown Austin living. Milago offers many of the same amenities as these super luxury condos such as 24-7 concierge, exercise facility, club room, WiFi lounge and rooftop pool at a fraction of the cost. For example, you can buy a 2-bedroom, 2 bathroom condo with 1,164 SF (per tax record) for $300,000 to $500,000 depending on the views; there are also penthouse homes available below $1M! Not only are sales prices less; the respective HOA dues (Approxiamtely $0.315 per SF per month) and property taxes are proportionally lower. See themilago.com for an overview.
