The announcements keep on coming as Mueller Austin continues to grow. Today Catellus announced that the AMLI will be breaking ground in early 2013 with first units available for move in the third quarter of 2014. Fifteen percent of the units will be reserved for Mueller’s Affordable Housing Program. Upon completion, the goal is that 25% of the neighborhood will be in the Affordable program.
The 279-unit apartment complex will be located at the corner of Simond & Mattie Street, across from Mueller Lake Park and adjacent to the forthcoming Austin Children’s Museum. The plan is for 8000 square feet of ground floor retail with units above. Of course, the hope is that this density will support the opening of additional businesses and help Catellus reach their goal of 30% local businesses in the town center.
Right now Mueller has about 830 homes on the ground and 640 apartments. An additional 221 homes are currently being built and an additional 300 apartments are under construction, with no slow down in sight.
