Not your stereotypical Austin vibe
Shopping nearby = Traffic


Known for its booming business industry, upscale retail, and a wide variety of drinking and dining hotspots, this northwest ‘burb is an increasingly popular spot to settle down for residents and corporations alike. Neighboring the Domain and less than a 20-minute drive to Downtown Austin, there’s always a ton to see, eat, and do near home base for Arboretum residents.


Like the Domain, the Arboretum area is named for its main shopping hub, the Arboretum Shopping Center. Browse favorite retailers like Pottery Barn and Barnes and Noble, then walk to your reservation at one of the staple restaurants onsite. You’ve also got all of your favorite grocery stores within minutes—grabbing the essentials at H-E-B and then running to Trader Joe’s for those snacks you’re currently hooked on is easy when you live around here.

If you’re a fan of the great outdoors, this area has a ton of Texas Hill Country green spaces, pet parks, and walking trails to enjoy. With easy access to major highways like I-35, 183, and MoPac, traveling around the city is a breeze (pending traffic, of course).


Apartments here can be pricey compared to other suburbs of Austin, but the amenities and location are hard to beat. For those who love the city but don’t want to live directly amid the hustle and bustle, Arboretum properties offer just what you need.
