One of Northwest Austin’s more popular neighborhoods because of its proximity to Austin’s major transportation outlets (183, 360 and MoPac), lush landscaping, wide tree lined streets, rolling hills and distinct housing styles. Residents who work at some of Austin’s largest employers such as Dell, IBM, 3M, have helped build this neighborhood from the secluded neighborhood it was 20 years ago to the bustling city center it is today. With the Arboretum, an outdoor upscale shopping mall, and the nearby Gateway Shopping Center, Great Hills residents have no shortage of the shopping, dining and recreational activities that many Central Austin neighborhoods enjoy.
