Diamond Building at Mueller is not your typical commercial space

muelleraustin_planThe first spec office building at Austin’s master-planned, mixed-used Mueller neighborhood, The Diamond Building is in some ways an ode to bohemia with its unconventional zigs and zags. None of the 37,198-square-feet has been pre-leased but that might change overnight — once would-be tenants realize that the views and location are outstanding.

Mueller includes 140 acres of parks and open space that mitigate heat islands created by asphalt and concrete.

It’s one of the largest communities under development in the world to earn the honor and the first in Texas to receive the designation in the Neighborhood Development category.
