Just 3 miles from Downtown Austin and 2 miles from the University of Texas at Austin, Mueller’s sustainable, urbanist style of living is a culmination of efforts between the developer and the city of Austin to create a live-work-play atmosphere where neighbors of all backgrounds can live close to where they work, shop and spend quality time with loved ones.

Mueller is well on its way to becoming home to approximately 13,000 residents, 13,000 employees, 4 million square feet of office and retail, more than 5,700 homes and 140 acres of public open space.

what is

new urbanism?

New Urbanism is an approach to land planning that reduces traffic and eliminates sprawl. This approach to land development allows and encourages residents to walk to services such as shops, businesses, theaters, schools and parks, similar to what we see in Europe.

At Mueller, you’ll find streetscapes designed to encourage neighborly interactions using design elements such as rear-lane garages, mixed home designs and affordability levels as well as reduced private landscapes in favor of more communal space and a sense of closeness.
