Goodnight Development Aims to Transform Southeast Austin

Plan aims for high-quality neighborhood with character of central Austin culture and environs

A mixed-use development of 700 acres of Southeast Austin that's been in the works for a decade is finally set to go forward. A master plan for the Goodnight neighborhood, named after the family that has owned the former ranchland since the 1960s, has been approved, and the project is moving forward with permitting for up to 3,500 homes, 120 acres of in-district park space, 500 acres of out-of-district park space, and roughly a 250,000 square feet of commercial space.

Goodnight will extend along Slaughter Lane on the east side of I-35 next to Onion Creek Metropolitan Park.
