The 75 Acres
The land fronting Bull Creek Road is gradually sloping to the Ridgelea neighborhood / Shoal Creek and lends itself to development. This area is currently the site of some one-story buildings used by TxDOT. The eastern half of the property is bounded by Shoal Creek and slopes downward significantly toward the creek. This area includes a grove of magnificent heritage oak trees and a striking array of Texas wildflowers rugged enough to dazzle even in our drought conditions. Other heritage oak and pecan trees are scattered throughout the site. The eastern edge of the site is within the floodplain and is a critical water quality zone. The beautiful natural elements of this site cannot be found, or found on a similar scale, anywhere else in central Austin.
Except for Bull Creek Road, the site is completely surrounded by single family homes and Shoal Creek.
