Snapshot of Downtown Retail Market
The DAA commissioned an update to our Downtown Austin Trade Area report in 2011. The report identifies downtown's trade area psychographics and target market. It defines the Downtown Trade Area as the region within a 30-minute drive of downtown. Download the report here.
Downtown’s retail districts provide a mix of national and local shops, restaurants and service providers that’s unrivaled in Austin. Visitors can explore one or all of the districts, and combine shopping with activities ranging from kayaking to museum hopping to enjoying live music.
Emerging Downtown Retail Projects
From the redevelopment of the Seaholm Power Plant and Green Water Treatment Plant along Cesar Chavez to emerging projects in downtown’s northeast quadrant, new mixed-use developments are brining more first-floor retail to all corners of downtown.
