The Villas on Town Lake

Stories: 3  Units:175

The Villas are affectionately called, "The ski lodges" by locals.  It looks like a tropical resort tucked in Downtown Austin.  When it was build in 1982, it didn't have a surrounding shadow, but with current development, they no longer have a view.  There is some speculation that the land will be bought and the current owners will be offered a buy-out package.  The complex neighbors the Rainey Street district and the Mexican American Cultural Center.  The foot print these small buildings sit on is valuable, and doesn't meet the real estate criteria of "highest and best use".
