Mueller is one of the fast-growing and greenest communities in Austin. Designed on the site of Austin’s former airport, the neighborhood is envisioned as a mixed-use community, with condominiums, shops, offices, and green space. Many newer homes in the area incorporate energy-efficient design. In addition to quick access to Interstate 35, this and other communities just east of the highway enjoy proximity to Dell Children’s Hospital, downtown, and the University of Texas.

Area attractions include the Mueller Farmer's Market, The Thinkery
