To round up the week, we’d like to give special mentions to a few of our favorite stories. And this week’s picks are…
- “UT student housing, not condos, coming to 17 & Guadalupe” About a month ago, the Downtown Austin Blog had a post hinting at the redevelopment of the abandoned, sad-looking Arby’s at 17th and Guadalupe, received with some skepticism. Guess what? It’s going to be developed into an 80-unit student housing apartment complex and they want to do it fast. [Downtown Austin]
- “Are you an Austin Buyer or a Contestant?” If you’ve tried to buy a house in Austin lately, in an area of high demand and low inventory, such as Southwest Austin, you may have run into some competition. In fact, you most likely have. [Crossland Real Estate]
- “St. Patrick’s Day Fun“ It’s no blarney – out West, we are celebrating the wearin’ o’ the green with food and drink specials plus live music. Below, a guide with quick descriptions and links to more info. Cheers! [WoWAustin]
Keep the ideas flowing and the reports comin’! Thanks for the news, guys!
