How well do you know the stories behind the names of Mueller’s streets?

In this series, we’ll explore the history behind the diverse cross-section of Austin leaders and legends that make up the names of our neighborhood’s roads.

Round 1: The Boxing Champs

For a city that seemingly knows no other sport than Longhorn Football, it can be easy to forget that many talented athletes have called Austin home, talented athletes like Walter “Big Gil ” Stromquist and Tom Attra.

Attra Street

Tom Attra, a Texas boxing legend who was named National Golden Gloves Champion in both 1942 and 1945, is the namesake of this Mueller road.

Born September 4th, 1918, Mr. Attra was also a four-time state light-heavy-weight champ and won the state TAAF (Texas Amateur Athletics Federation) crown five times achieving state pro champ. His pro record included 23 wins in 24 fights, 22 of them by knockout.

He served as a corporal in the Air Corps during World War II, and after the war Mr. Attra was in charge of Austin American-Statesman street sales for the entire downtown area. He was a familiar sight on Congress Avenue for more than three decades.

Stromquist Street

One street over from Attra is Stromquist Street,  named for Walter “Big Gil ” Stromquist.

At six-foot, ten inches tall, “Big Gil ” Stromquist was a noted Austin Golden Gloves Champion and professional boxer, having fought in Madison Square Garden in 1943.

After retiring from the world of boxing, Mr. Stromquist entered the nightclub business. In 1955 he opened Gil’s Club, one of Austin’s most well known clubs for 27 years.

Stromquist Street? Attra Street? Never heard of it.

That’s probably because they’re still under construction. Located in Mueller’s newest phase, Section 10-1, Stromquist and Attra Streets will both feature courtyard row homes and paseo row homes. Reach out to us if you want to learn more about pricing, floor plans, availability and how you can buy a new home at Mueller before it ever hits the MLS!

With the launch of not one, but two composting programs in Mueller this summer, the neighborhood is another step closer to reaching our goal of becoming a zero-waste community.

Invasion of the little green bins

The City of Austin started the curbside composting program in 2013 in a few pockets of the city. Last month, Mueller residents received their green bins to start composting, which means all of your food and yard waste can go to a composting facility to be turned into a useful soil amendment rather than going into the landfill, where the food rots and emits greenhouse gasses. The bins get picked up once a week, on the same day as your regular trash collection.

What are you allowed to put the green bin? A lot. So much so, it’s probably more useful to outline what can’t go in the bin:

  • No cat litter, cigarette butts, diapers, pet waste, animal carcasses, rocks, wine corks, styrofoam or other trash.
  • You can compost meat, but you shouldn’t put bacon grease and other oil in the bin.
  • The only plastic bags you can use are the small BPI-certified compostable bags.

If you’ve done composting before, you may know it can get a little messy, but Austin Resource Recovery has some handy tips on how to keep your bin fresh:

  • Layer food scraps with yard trimmings and/or newspaper in the green bin
  • Keep food scraps in the freezer until collection day
  • Sprinkle baking soda in the bin
  • Periodically wash the bin with mild soap and water
Turn your spoil into soil at the Farmers’ Market

In Mueller, there is more than one way to send your food waste back from whence it came.

Recently, the Texas Farmers’ Market at Mueller , in partnership with Joe’s Organics, started the Mueller Backyard Community Composting initiative. Every Sunday under the historic Browning Hanger,  everyone is welcome to drop off their frozen compost scraps (no meat, dairy or trash please) free of charge during farmers’ market hours (10am-2pm).

Austinites can look forward to a new and eclectic expansion along Mueller’s Aldrich Street with the addition of the Aldrich Outdoor Market, a selection of local pop-up retailers and services set to open across from the Alamo Drafthouse this spring.

The first of several businesses planned include Rocket Electrics, an electric bicycle rental company that will operate out of a shipping container. Soto & Co. will offer custom tailored men’s suits, shoes, shirts, and other accessories to create the modern gentleman’s perfect ensemble, out of a stylish 18-foot renovated cargo van. You can schedule an appointment via their websiteor walk on in. Lemon Drop Children’s Shopwill provide children’s toys, clothes, and accessories. Other Aldrich Street openings Mueller residents can look forward to this year include Açaí Hut, Lilla & Beth, Lady Quackenbush’s Cakery and Massage Heights.

Joining these additional business openings will be the Aldrich Lending Library, a custom “take a book, leave a book” outdoor free book exchange. The lending library will include a comfortable sitting area to provide a place to hang out, read and drink a favorite beverage from one of Aldrich Street’s many eateries.

“With all of these local businesses joining Aldrich Street, almost all of Mueller’s town center will be local,” said Ken Blaker, senior vice president of Catellus Development, the master developer of Mueller. Catellus will have the flexibility to shift the pop-up retailers to nearby sites on Aldrich Street as land is developed into future mixed-use buildings over time.

In addition to all these new business openings, we’re incredibly excited that the Texas Farmer’s Market at Mueller (TFM) is expanding its offerings to include Wednesday nights. This expansion also means TFM will be the City of Austin’s only weekday farmer’s market. Partnering with the Sustainable Food Center, the organization also accepts SNAP Lonestar dollars, with every $1 worth $2 when used to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables. The new Wednesday night market will begin next weekon May 2 from 5 to 8 p.m!

Big news! Foundation Communities recently won the funding they needed to build a new affordable family community in Mueller.

Next year they will break ground on The Jordan – a 132-unit complex that will feature housing for people making about 50 to 60 percent of the median family income, with 14 units reserved for families who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.  These families will have access to great schools and job opportunities, green spaces and kid-friendly activities, as well as on-site education, financial stability, and health programs.

The Jordan will be built using $13.5 million in low-income housing tax credits from the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs, plus $4 million provided by the city of Austin from its 2013 voter-approved housing bonds.

While public funding helps Foundation Communities to build new affordable housing, they couldn’t provide the services that truly transform their residents’ lives without the continued generosity of community members. Visit foundcom.org to learn more about volunteer opportunities and/or to make a donation.

The construction of Mueller’s next public park is underway! Town Center Park will mark the seventh public park to open in Mueller; advancing the development’s larger sustainability goals, which include the preservation and expansion of green space.

1. Prospect Hill views

The active 3.5-acre open green space, located just three blocks from Dell Children’s Medical Center and three blocks from the Thinkery on the northern end of Aldrich Street, will feature a “prospect hill,” approximately 15-feet high, that will allow visitors elevated views of the park.

2. Entertaining and educational water features

Beyond “prospect hill”, Town Center Park will include a water feature that will emulate the way water flows in Central Texas: with a push of a button, park goers will be able to operate interactive jets that represent rain. The water will then channel through an area that resembles a Hill Country stream before the water shoots out of “limestone cliffs,” offering an interactive experience – fun and educational.

3. Fun with friends (human and furry alike)

Town Center Park will include sand volleyball courts, an enclosed dog-run and a flexible area for social games like Bocce or Kubb. A nearby set of restrooms will feature a landscaped rooftop – aesthetically pleasing and functional.

4. Even more space to work on our fitness

When it comes to hike & bike trails we say, “The more the merrier!” The new park will include a 10-foot wide trail and an exercise/stretching area will also include a bicycle care station alongside bike racks.

5. Mueller fun for the whole family

A children’s playground, sensory gardens and rain gardens will join nearly 220 new trees around an open lawn area suitable for family picnics, flying a kite or playing catch.

The park is scheduled to be completed later in 2018 and we can’t wait!

Town Center Park is the latest development surrounding Mueller’s Aldrich Street, a vibrant activity hub in the heart of the master-planned Mueller community. Come take a visit!

The Mueller Town Center is ever changing! Take a virtual walk through the Aldrich Street town center to see what’s now open, coming soon and under construction. Follow along with the map below and photos taken today.

Alamo Drafthouse

Starting at #1, we can see that the Alamo Drafthouse Mueller is preparing to open! With preview nights beginning this weekend and a grand opening set for March 9, the countdown is on. Tickets are on sale now and we can’t wait! Trying to sneak a peek in the windows, can you see the Barrel o’ Fun? This brand new concept for Alamo is a family friendly carnival during the day and turns into the Bar O’ Fun for adults after 5pm.

Diamond Building

Moving on to #2, BD Riley’s Irish Pub is getting its finishing touches! Fingers crossed we will be able to enjoy a pint on St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner. Blue Genie has designed a 17′ tall water tower shaped like a Guiness pint to collect rainwater, highlighting the green building features at Mueller.

In addition to BD Riley’s, the Diamond Building is also going to feature several other restaurants including JT Youngbloods Fried Chicken. Slated for an opening this month, JT Youngbloods is starting to take shape and we think that we spy a TAKEOUT WINDOW! Sorry, got a little excited… More of the building is being finish out out to include Lick Ice Cream, Halcyon Coffee and Stella Public House.

Paseo

Next we catch a glimpse of the Paseo on #3, this walkway takes you to the Thinkery (#4) and on to Lake Park. This walkable Paseo is what Mueller is all about. It’s a space to interact with community members and shops throughout the town center.

AMLI

Finally, as an update to our most recent blog posts, Whitchcraft has opened at the AMLI. With an incredibly large selection of beers on tap and in bottles, they seem to have almost everything. Not into beer? They also have great coffee! A fantastic addition to the first two ALMI tenants: Bribery Bakery and L’Oca d’ Oro.

The variety and amenities of the Aldrich Street Town Center are incredible, with so much to take part in right now and in the very near future. Come take a visit! Want a shorter commute to all of the fun? Contact us to learn more about Mueller homes for sale within walking distance of this desirable area.
