Urban Living and Lake Views at Our Downtown Austin Apartments


Simply saying this area is “Downtown Austin” is quite the understatement. Because, to really talk about how incredible this slice of Austin is, you have to divide up all of the iconic spots that surround it. For instance, this urban hub is right off Lady Bird Lake and has all the benefits that come with having a stunning body of water in the center of a city. Ten miles of trails border the lake and serve as a social hub for runners, walkers, and cyclists.

Then there’s Zilker Park nearby. This is 361 lush acres nestled in the heart of the city. Head there to picnic, rent a canoe, try your hand at disc golf, or spend a sunny day at Barton Springs pool. Spring-fed waters make it a cool 68 degrees so you can dive in and beat the Texas heat. The 2nd Street District is also nearby and claims the best shopping, dining, and entertainment in Austin.

Here, in the very heart of all those areas that “Keep Austin Weird”, we’ve created Water Marq - a beautiful community that soaks up the energy of Downtown but also offers a quiet escape. Here you’ll find designer apartments and townhomes that are warm and welcoming! Our apartments also include high tech features such as Google Fiber Internet and electric car charging stations.

Come by and take a look at our Downtown Austin apartments. We look forward to helping you find the home that’s right for you.

Live in the Best Part of Town at Our Riverside Apartments | Austin

Our Neighborhood

Austin is a unique and thriving city that still stays close to its “weird” roots. The city has an independent spirit, defined in part by the annual South By Southwest music and film festival, which infuses the community with life and culture. Appropriately, the town has the highest per capita of music venues in the country, which line the entirety of 6th Street. The 2nd Street shopping district will be right down the street, as well as Lady Bird Lake, which you can view from your apartment. Your nearest grocer is the Farm to Market grocery, with Trader Joe’s not far behind. All of the best BBQ in the world is available to you, at Stubbs or Franklin BBQ. Move to these amazing riverside apartments; Austin is waiting for you!
