In other words, which city in 2018 looks like a more matured version of Austin for better or worse? Which city already went through those growing pains in the 90s and 00s?

Put Houston, Dallas and Silicon Valley in a blender, press puree and you'll have Austin 2038.

The growing amount of housing in Downtown Austin and large central university suggest a more urban future than those examples.
