East Riverside Real EstateEast Riverside, known primarily as a large cluster of apartments and condos, is a rapidly developing sector of south Austin. Renewed attention by city planners and prominent businesses has brought a renaissance of sorts to this neighborhood, prompting many to consider the area a very promising piece of real estate. East Riverside is located between IH-35 and Ben White Boulevard.
The community of East Riverside is mostly made up of renters - students, young families, and professionals are all catered to by one or more of East Riverside-s many apartment and condo complexes. Both downtown Austin and the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport are mere minutes away by one of the nearby major highways - even in rush hour traffic.
In recent years, East Riverside has undergone a remarkable transformation. Huge restoration and development efforts have brought new life, new beauty, and new opportunities to much of this neighborhood. One of the biggest triumphs for East Riverside was the decision of major tech-industry company Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), one of Austin-s biggest employers, to move into southwest Austin. A variety of malls, shops, restaurants, and grocery stores, many of which display Asian or Latin American influence, provide residents with bargain prices and a wide selection of products.
Efforts have also been made to improve the aesthetics of East Riverside, including a $6 million restoration project in local Mabel Davis District Park and the construction of miles of new biking and hiking trails. Roy Guerrero Colorado River Park, which links to many of the new trails, is an enormous 363-acre park which can rival any in Austin. The storied Riverside Golf Course is another attraction, offering its services to members and nonmembers alike.
