The Place to Be

The Place to Be

Highland’s location puts all of Austin’s amenities within easy reach. Located at the geographic center of the city, Highland is just four miles from downtown, three miles from the University of Texas at Austin, and accessible from across Austin via IH-35, US-290, and US-183.

Highland is also surrounded by some of the city’s most treasured historic districts, as well as its hottest new destinations. The tree-lined streets of Hyde Park and the charming independent vibe of North Loop are just minutes away. Buzzed-about new restaurants and businesses are joining longtime favorites on Airport Boulevard. And nearby developments like Crestview Station, Mueller, The Linc, and Hancock Center will give Highland’s residents, students, and office workers easy access to an even wider range of shopping, dining, and entertainment options.
