It's the magazine's 2nd move in less than 2 years.

Texas Monthly is moving back downtown. The national magazine of Texas will take up more than 21,000 square feet at 816 Congress, just a couple blocks south of the Texas Capitol. The move ends the magazine's time in the University Park office tower.

Texas Monthly became that building's first tenant in August 2009. About a year later it sued the developers, sighting broken promises on development amenities. The 23-acre project was originally planned to have a hotel, additional retail space, a movie theater and apartments.

Texas Monthly president Elynn Russell said the magazine can't wait to move in. "With our move to 816 Congress, the Capitol will be practically at our doorstep and we'll tap into the energy of a vibrant downtown," Russell said.
