Some 25 percent of all homes built in Mueller — more than 1,250 new houses, condos and apartments will be reserved specifically for households with lower than the area’s median incomes. Mueller Houses built by CalAtlantic Homes, Garden Homes built by David Weekly Homes and apartments at the Mosaic at Mueller are currently available for buyers and renters who qualify for the Affordable Homes Program (check our FAQs and Eligibility Guidelines to learn more about qualifying). “This is a really great opportunity for hard-working Austin families to purchase a new, high-quality Central Austin home at an attainable price,” said Lee Thomson, executive director of the Mueller Foundation.  “The Mueller Affordable Homes Program was created for just that reason and it is exciting to see so many Austinites realizing that goal.” Standard Pacific Homes’ Affordable Mueller Houses Construction on the first Mueller Houses is already underway and the first residents of this new home type at Mueller are anticipated to move in this summer.
