The East Riverside-Oltorf Neighborhood of Austin has recently undergone huge changes, with old apartments torn down to make way for new taller apartments, lots of new retail, and more. Let’s take a look at what’s changed in the three years since we profiled this area.
East Riverside-Oltorf is located just south of Lady Bird Lake, east of I-35, west of Grove Boulevard, and north of Ben White/Highway 71. Historically, it has been popular with students, but it has recently been gaining popularity with young professionals who value its proximity to downtown and easy access to recreation on Lady Bird Lake.
Children in this area living west of Pleasant Valley Road attend Austin ISD schools and those east of Pleasant Valley Road attend Del Valle Schools.
AISD students go to either Allison or Linder Elementary for grades Kindergarten through fifth grade. Students at Allison go on to Martin Middle School, whose mascot is the Eagles. Students at Linder go on to Fulmore Middle School. Fulmore is the Arts and Humanities Magnet for AISD and their mascot is the Falcons.
