fareground at one eleven

Fareground at One Eleven Congress is a reimagining of the plaza and lobby space at One Congress Plaza in downtown Austin. Part park and part marketplace, Fareground transformed an underutilized space into a modern, inviting and active downtown hub for professionals, residents and visitors.


Fareground plaza features an inviting, rolling lawn and stunning, massive oak trees. A meandering ADA ramp offers universal accessibility and immerses visitors in the natural environment, peacefully veiling the hustle and bustle of the busy, adjacent, at-grade streetscape. Fareground utilizes a dramatic botanical plant palette to create a verdant and comfortable setting.
