Who will live here?

  • Many grandparents move to Mueller to be near their grandchildren, we expect to offer options that attract people moving to Austin from out of state
  • Families who members are resident in the health care facilities
  • People who work in the office spaces or one of the numerous retail shops.

Affordable by Design

  • By building smaller units with limited facilities for each person in a group setting it should be possible to deliver attractive housing for $500 per month. 
  • Artist lofts with limited living space but generous work and display space presents a chance for some of Austin’s finest to afford to live in Austin.
