Next week, we'll release our first-ever State of the Downtown report at the first annual Future of Downtown event. The report is a market snapshot illustrating the central role downtown plays as Austin's economic, governmental and cultural center. It provides a comprehensive look at the current market conditions in the economic engine of our city – from downtown development, employment and talent to culture and mobility. These insights will ensure we can help downtown Austin grow in a responsible, accessible and sustainable way for the benefit of the entire region. We are committed to ensuring downtown Austin is the downtown you will always love.
