Minutes to Everything
People want to work in Central Austin.
Companies located in Austin want to be our city. All the things that make Austin special are central—from restaurants, hip bars, renowned music venues, Zilker Park, Barton Springs, the hike-and-bike trail around Lady Bird Lake to the South Congress, East Austin and Warehouse District scenes. MetCenter is minutes from all that via Riverside Drive, Cesar Chavez and Seventh Streets. And MetCenter is easily accessible from all parts of Austin via Highway 71, Highway 183 and SH 130, as well as directly across from the airport. An upgrade of Highway 183 between the airport and Highway 290 is currently under construction, creating seamless freeway access to Austin from the far northwest areas of the metropolitan area.
One bad decision and your whole world revolves around traffic.
Most businesses did not locate in Austin to spend hours in traffic, far from Austin’s creative core, natural beauty and rock solid funk. Traffic outside of the Cool Zone is hellish and soul-crushing, particularly along I-35, Mopac and 360. And there is no solution remotely in sight. MetCenter is only minutes from downtown Austin, all the great urban neighborhoods and the high-growth eastern, southern and southwestern areas of Austin. Although over fifty percent of the Austin workforce lives within the Cool Zone, help is on the way for employees living in north Austin: Highway 183 is currently being upgraded to provide direct access from all part of north Austin and beyond to the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, directly next to the front door of MetCenter. And SH 130 already provides direct highway access to the airport from Round Rock, Georgetown and other northern suburbs.
