The Block on Leon Apartments in West Campus Austin
I moved into my Block apartment on Halloween of 2009. While you were out playing dress-up, I was hauling furniture around and dealing with utility companies. Once I was settled though, I really dug my new surroundings. Attractive Austin apartments can be hard to come by so I was thrilled that I scored such a sweet pad so close to the University of Texas at Austin campus. The Block has a lot of amenities and a friendly management team. My building, The Block on Leon Apartments, offers a fitness center, rooftop lounge, garage parking, and a computer lab as well as free cable, internet, and trash disposal. Every apartment has a washer/dryer, granite counters, stainless steel appliances, patios/balconies, and more. The rent is affordable and the neighborhood is great. I’m able to walk to The Drag and there are bountiful frat houses, including the ATO House around if you’re looking to pledge. Cuatro’s is just a stone’s throw away and offers some of the best burgers and tacos in town as well as draught beer and sports on the numerous televisions. The Block also holds events for their residents that usually include free food and drinks as well as a great opportunity to mingle with your neighbors.
With that in mind, it’s not all sunshine and daisies. The apartments are on the smallish side (though my opinion might be skewed because I used to live alone in a 2 bedroom apartment) and the interior isn’t breathtaking by any stretch of the imagination. When I moved in a few of the appliances weren’t working but maintenance was up to fix them shortly afterward. The view from my balcony is great if staring at the side of a building tickles your pickle.
All things considered, though, The Block on Campus offers great West Campus apartments at an affordable price with plentiful amenities and few drawbacks. If you happen to move in, drop by my place and have a drink.
