Welcome to Mueller
Built on the former site of the Robert Mueller Municipal Airport, this town-within-a-town started welcoming residents in 2007. As it keeps growing, Mueller’s mixed-use community continues to be the epitome of thoughtful, sustainable urban design.
Dreamed up as a New Urbanist village with more than 6,200 homes, Mueller is still expanding, adding new residents, restaurants, and retailers every week.

What to Expect
Quality of life is a top priority for Mueller residents who are happy to forgo the historic charm–and upkeep–of older neighborhoods for practical amenities like dedicated bike lanes, miles of wide sidewalks, and their own family-friendly “downtown,” which is filling up with eateries, shops, and entertainment options like the acclaimed Thinkery children’s museum and new Alamo Drafthouse movie theater.
Designed to foster a sense of togetherness, Mueller brings neighbors in close contact with each other, whether it’s out in the courtyards that many houses share, while swimming at the community pools, or bumping into each other at the cluster mailboxes.
Mueller has 140 acres of green spaces, and many of them go beyond the typical pocket parks. Take Paggi Square, built specifically for residents to try their hand at pétanque, a bocce-like lawn game. A food truck park also makes for a merry gathering spot.
Mueller contains a variety of builders and styles to choose from, whether you favor a cottage or a garden home, a row house or a mixed-use apartment building. Most single-family homes have inviting porches, stoops, and parking garages accessed via rear alleys. 20% of the neighborhood is dedicated to public green spaces, including parks, pools, community garden and the like.
You'll Fall in Love With
For all its efficiency (and size), Mueller manages to cultivate the type of harmony you often find in tight-knit communities. Its multigenerational appeal (there are a couple of senior living communities) and diverse population make it one of Austin’s most inclusive areas. Both are on display at the cheerful weekly farmers’ market.
