Mueller Featured by NPR and SPUR

April 16th, 2015 |


SPUR’s Design for Walkability Initiative has chosen Mueller Town Center as a successful case study where new development has established a dense, walkable urban district.

ELS master planned the 39-acre town center at Mueller, a 700-acre redevelopment of the Robert Mueller Municipal Airport. Smart growth has transformed the former airport site to a lively LEED-certified neighborhood development.

In February 2015, the Mueller development was featured in the NPR Cities Project, a series on urban life in the 21st century. The story, “With Porches And Parks, A Texas Community Aims For Urban Utopia,” explores how in Texas, a state where cars are king, planners have designed the neighborhood around pedestrians.
