This mixed-use urban village, built on the 700-acre site that was vacated when Austin’s airport relocated in 1999, is well on its way to becoming home to approximately 10,000 people, more than 4,900 homes, and 140 acres of public, open space. Soon to include a relocated Austin Children’s Museum, this community vibrates with active young families and retirees alike, many of whom put the 13 miles of new hike and bike paths to good use. Housing ranges from apartments to condos to detached homes. If you have a job at Dell Children’s you can walk to work or catch your connection to public transportation here, too. Farmer’s markets, front porches, and a spacious park encourage people to get out and meet each other here.
