Whether you call Austin home or you're just visiting, you probably know that sunset is the perfect time to experience viewing the legendary South Congress bats take flight. The Ann W. Richards Congress Avenue Bridge is home to the largest urban bat colony in the world and houses up to 1.5 million Mexican-free tailed bats every summer. Their migration places them in Austin from March through November and in Mexico for the remaining calendar year. These somewhat misinterpreted creatures provide a natural pest control by eating 20-30 thousand pounds of insects each night! But most importantly bring our Downtown Austin community together for a spectacular show. 

With the last few weeks of summer fast approaching, you will want to catch them while you

Having a hard time keeping up with all the new business in East Austin? Let us help you out with a few of our new favorites! And make sure you're hungry!

Native Bar + Kitchen arrived in early May with its debut on East 4th street just shy of I-35. The idea of this dining experience is about bringing "house party and hospitality under one roof." The menu ranges from late night dining (2 am, that is) to breakfast tacos. And if you are looking for cocktails - the Native Margarita and The Native Foam Mule will be sure to quench your summertime thirst. Sit down and enjoy a conversation with someone from far beyond our city limits.

Are you one of the thousands relocating to Austin, TX? According to Austin Demographer Ryan Robinson, Austin’s growth is approximately 157 “net arrivals per day”. Now imagine trying to meet 157 people every day. Impossible! With Austin's rapid growth the past couple of years, there does not seem to be a slowdown in sight, but you can still feel like part of the community by "meeting" your neighbors, virtually. The now popular app Nextdoor is the new way to ask your neighbor for a cup of sugar.

Nextdoor allows you to get to know your neighbors, sell household items, organize events and communicate effectively from the comfort of your smart phone. I recently downloaded the app myself and realized how together I felt and how active my neighbors

Fourth of July has come and gone and if you are wondering what to do for the next few weeks we've got you covered.

Check out some events around central Austin that we've curated - most are free and all are awesome! Many of the events are happening outdoors - for those events - be sure to bring:

  • a large, soft blanket
  • comfy shoes
  • sunscreen
  • TOWERS.net sunglasses (come by our office and grab a pair!)
  • binoculars
  • and lots of water to keep you hydrated!

Blues on the Green has been an Austin tradition for over 25 years and even with the decreased summer productions, Austinites flock, and blanket Zilker Park twice a month. This week BOTG has the pleasure of hosting a native Texan, Kevin Russell, of the soul-funk band, Shinyribs.

June 20, 2017, brought us the first official day of summer, but any real Austinite can vouch that it's felt like summer since mid-February. With all the hustle and bustle of out of town visitors and college students fleeing the city, most of us locals opt to find the simple pleasures of what our city has to offer during these scorching months, giving us the young visions of a few new Austin creatives.

Kaitlyn Drake and Kelly Ford moved to The Lonestar state with high aspirations to leave their mark on the city. After attending street market after street market they realized their favorite district, the Rainey Street District in Downtown Austin, was missing one of its own.

Until now!

If you live in downtown Austin, you are not only close to all the social hotspots and lounges - but you are also likely within steps of Lady Bird Lake and the Hike and Bike Trail. Not to mention all of the healthy food options (Juiceland is a TOWERS fave!) and fitness shops that inhabit downtown spaces. 

Those living in buildings like The Shore, The Milago, The Four Seasons Residences, and 360 Condos enjoy having a fit lifestyle at their fingertips. Roll out of bed and right

Roll out of bed and right on to the trail. Or, right onto a bike - a la RIDE in the 2nd Street District.  Or, right on to a mat at Yoga studios like Wanderlust.  The options are almost endless.

A great way to amp up and celebrate is by participation in #GlobalWellnessDay

Wednesday was, at last, the day of our annual team event! The anticipation began building back in January when we booked with local boat tour company Capital Cruises. For two hours, we cruised around Lady Bird Lake and was a total delight!

Surprisingly, for a boat full of Austinites, the majority of us had never participated in a tour on the lake! It was such a neat experience and we could not recommend Capital Cruises enough to host your personal or company event. The crew was friendly and accommodated us in every way necessary.

Dear readers,

Going through a new build process can be strenuous and stressful and also rewarding. Building a house from the ground up takes 6-8 months and it's typically on the longer side of things. Between permitting, rain, and herding contractors, delays are inevitable. Alas! When all is said and done, you have a brand new home with your selections and personal touches to add. That's what Ajith and his family did and while his belongings sat in storage and he slept on an air mattress, Milestone worked as fast as they could to get his house up. Following is the succession of progress and process.

Enjoy!

"So wonderful to see your family today, perfect weather day too! I am so glad your family is excited and anxious to live here, I know
