The Brown Building Lofts offer its residents downtown luxury living, with a bit of history. Originally constructed in 1938 on the corner of 8th Street and Colorado, the building has housed many different business, including the family business of native Texan and former U.S. President, Lyndon Johnson. In its latest redesign, the building was converted into spacious lofts in the early 2000s. The building then became a ten-story building, adding two new floors and a rooftop deck.
The building was selected for the National Register of Historic Places in the 90s, and due to its status as a historic landmark, owners of Brown Building Loft units are eligible for a historic building property tax abatement. You can save money on your taxes, and still enjoy the luxury of a high-rise condo, the close proximity to downtown employers and nightlife, as well as the Lady Bird Lake park, just a few blocks to the south.
The lofts feature an open layout with high ceilings, concrete pillars, and exposed ductwork to showcase the materials used in construction. Even though the building is a historic landmark, kitchens and bathrooms have been updated with modern appliances and fixtures, and even a washer and dryer connection in each unit. The first eight floors of the buildings still feature the beautiful terrazzo floors that were laid in 1938. The rooftop deck makes for a great place to relax or entertain guests while you soak in the sun setting over the beautiful Texas Hill Country. Or you can get a workout in at the building’s private fitness center.
On the first floor of the building, residents find meal and drink options, such as Gumbo’s, a Cajun themed restaurant, and the swanky Brown Bar with its full list of signature martinis to help you relax at the end of a long day. The building features a wine cellar in the basement that occasionally offers wine tastings to residents.
The Brown Building Lofts offer beautiful design, luxury amenities, history, and tax reductions. What more could you want? Units range from 637 to 1,287 square feet.
