St Johns is transitioning area of northeast Austin. This small pocket just north of The University of Texas is made up of single-family and multi-family housing and apartment complexes. Because it’s in the middle of booming employment and mixed-used developments, St Johns is an ideal location for investment. The redevelopment of Highland Mall is the city’s largest project. Over the next decade the revitalization of an old shopping mall will be transformed into a “training hub” with a focus in hospitality, digital media, culinary arts and health careers. ACC is the anchor tenant with other facilities to be built include apartment complexes (totaling 1200 units), three parks, hotels, office and retail buildings. Buyers and homeowners are updating old homes, while builders are tearing them down and building condo regimes. The metro rail will make this area a destination and residents will reap the benefits of increased walkability and density which will sure to increase their property value and rental rates.
