Located on 42 acres in the heart of the Mueller, the Mueller Town Center District is a planned 1.2 million square foot mixed-use lifestyle district that features a mix of retail, dining, cultural and entertainment options as well as workplaces, apartments and condominiums. Designed for strolling and spending quality time, the District will comfortably accommodate pedestrians, vehicles and transit. Urban scale, exciting shops and stores, and high quality design (buildings as well as streetscape) will create a sense of place in the Town Center District, making it a unique Austin destination.
The District is envisioned to be 24-hour, 365-day life force that features a fully integrated mix of commercial, civic, recreational and cultural offerings – providing a soulful and diverse experience for its visitors. As the pulse of the overall Mueller community, the District will be an inclusive place which appeals to the surrounding neighborhoods as well as a destination that attracts the greater Austin community. The goal for the District is to provide experiences that are “loved” by Austinites, notably, great shopping, live music, fine food, recreation and entertainment.

Austin Playhouse is planning a new 4,000-square-foot facility that will feature a 220-seat main stage and 99-seat second stage.

This fabulous facility will be available for use by other organizations, resulting in a building that benefits the broader community as well.
