Feel the South Congress culture

Just south of Ladybird Lake and one mile from the central business district, South Congress is home to small local retailers, restaurants and live music venues that have come to define Austin. The SoCo business district runs from 1000 South Congress Ave. to Live Oak Street, and one block on either side of the avenue. The area has seen significant commercial real estate growth in recent years. New mixed-used properties, such as Music Lane and the Hummingbird, have become a key driver in the changing face of this area. At the same time, city leadership and business organizations are making an active effort to preserve the area’s heritage and diversity. South Congress is near parks, residential neighborhoods, and other local destinations and is easily accessible to major highways.
