Wildhorse is moving forward to deliver a master-planned residential and commercial community, located on the new edge of Austin near SH 130 and US 290. Wildhorse will be a community with a wide range of inspiring housing types — approximately 2,400 homes, more than 1,000 apartments and 200 condos — nestled among Wildhorse’s natural hills, valleys, trees and water features.
The community will include more than 20 miles of hike and bike trails for residents to enjoy the expansive vistas of the region, including big-sky sunsets and unique views of the downtown Austin skyline. Located just 15 minutes from downtown Austin, Wildhorse is expanding the range of options for Austin’s growing and diverse population.
George Eppright established his homestead in the 1870s on a prominent hill in eastern Travis County. While this part of Central Texas is known for its flat, rich-soiled farmland, Eppright’s estate featured rolling hills punctuated by oak and elm trees. This land remained in the Eppright family until 1983 when Col. George Eppright endowed the tract to the Texas A&M Foundation to sell the land upon his passing in 1999. Today, the WildHorse property comprises nearly 1,500 wide-open acres with a storied legacy, graceful topography and convenient proximity that makes for a momentous mixed-use development site and the new edge of Austin.

Imagine Austin is a comprehensive plan for Austin developed by thousands of Austinites - citizens, business and community leaders and elected officials - based on six core principles:
Wildhorse is ideally located at U.S. 290, S.H. 130 and Parmer Lane, giving residents, employees and visitors an abundance of transportation options and easy access to downtown Austin, UT and Bergstrom Airport, as well as major employers and retail options all over central Texas. Wildhorse is also situated along the future Capitol Metro “Green Line,” extending from Austin to Manor to Elgin and is planned to incorporate a stop should the rail system be built.
Nearly 50% of Wildhorse’s land is dedicated to parks and open spaces. Wildhorse also contains a part of the Blackland Prairie and will preserve much of its land as open space as well as the natural environment of this special land.
Wildhorse will provide sustainable, attainable and livable homes for working families contributing to Austin’s prosperity in a wide variety of career and industry sectors. Additionally, Wildhorse developers estimate hundreds of construction jobs over the development lifecycle of the community.
Access to an affordable, healthy quality of life is a philosophy threaded throughout the community. Wildhorse will have a variety of mixed-income neighborhoods, including plans for both attainable single-family homes and a collection of high-end homes. Wildhorse intends to extend the healthy Austin lifestyle into the community by working with nearby farmers to host regular farmer’s markets as a part of its amenity center. Additionally, the community will include a network of hiking trails and outdoor open spaces for families.
Wildhorse homes and commercial structures will be built to strict green-building standards, surrounded by an abundance of trees and prairie grasses. In addition, Parmer Lane the main road into the community is Travis County’s first sustainable roadway to serve as a model for future road projects in the Desired Development Zone.
The Wildhorse community intends to feature public art within the development featuring local artists in Austin and around Texas, incorporating the unique Austin experience for residents. Additionally, the homes will maintain a set of design guidelines that provide a cohesive look to the community while giving homebuilders and commercial building developers flexibility to explore unique and inspiring architecture.
Parmer Lane will extend south X miles from US 290 and become the main entrance into the Wildhorse community. The divided four-lane road will offer residents, employees and visitors an enjoyable driving experience through Wildhorse and serve as a pilot sustainable roadway project for Travis County. The new road will set the stage for developing and maintaining naturally sustainable and ecologically based landscaping and storm water management practices, which will save on long-term maintenance costs.
