The Ridgetop neighborhood is located in Austin, Texas just Southwest of where Interstate Highway 35 and US Highway 290 intersect. Specifically, it is bounded by IH-35 to the East, Koenig Lane/US Hwy. 290 to the North, and 45th Street to the South with Red River and Airport Blvd. to the West. This corridor along Airport Blvd. is an area known throughout the city simply as “Ridgetop”.
Ridgetop was built up after World War II so many of the quaint homes were built in the late 1940s or early 1950s. Due to Airport Boulevard Renovation Initiative that was initially approved in 2009, this area of Austin has seen tremendous growth and investment. The neighborhood is close to many quality restaurants and local services.
Ridgetop residents are a group of friendly, supportive people who share concerns and thoughts on our community with a focus on becoming a better neighborhood. We are a prime example of urban diversity with residents of every economic, ethnic, and educational background. Our neighborhood is also home to many vibrant local businesses and community services.
We all share common interests and concerns, such as our neighborhood fronting major transit corridors (Airport Blvd., 51st Street and IH-35 frontage roads), the Capital Metro commuter rail line, proximity to the Mueller Airport redevelopment, Ridgetop Elementary School, the city sponsored Day Labor Center, Travis County Tax Assessor’s office, Travis County Sheriff’s office and similar housing stock and development patterns from the 1930’s, 40’s and 50’s.
