Southwest Austin growing fastest

September 3rd, 2010

Southwest Austin, just north of Ben White Boulevard, with area codes 78748 and 78749 are the two fastest growing residential and commercial areas in Austin, according to City Demographer Ryan Robinson.

For the past five years, the Southwest Austin area has out performed other sub-markets in Austin in terms of growth and development. Experts say that the area has built rapidly in a relatively small portion of metro-Austin, leading it to occupy about 10 percent of the market between 2006 and 2010. “For one sub-market out of 25 sub-markets to control that much of the market is a pretty dominating performance,” stated Austin’s division manager of Residential Strategies, Tommy Tucker.

Between 1997 and 2007, businesses in Southwest Austin grew by 53 percent compared to 35 percent for Austin overall.
