Congress Lofts at St. Elmo

Now Selling

One of South Austin’s only true loft-style communities in a new highly walkable commercial hub with a connection to the St. Elmo Public Market & District. This neighborhood will be in a vibrant mixed-use corridor stretching from Lady Bird Lake to Williamson Creek.  Amenities are designed to encourage personal health, foster meaningful social interactions and celebrate creative thinking.  The loft-style homes provide residents the opportunity to furnish their home in a more flexible manner that supports creative lifestyles and aspirations.


Congress Lofts is dedicated to advancing Austin’s architectural and lifestyle offerings to meet the needs of an evolving population. This community will introduce a design-driven and architecturally significant collection of quality homes that embraces the industrial history of the immediate area by introducing a classic warehouse-style residential offering to the neighborhood.
