Ten years ago the population was 51,000, but since then it would have increased. The area is home to many students and college-age residents.

The land was originally purchased from the government of Mexico (1825), and the area remained largely rural until about 1970. In 1973 a cattle farmer applied to develop his land for unit development. Student housing was built on some of the lands in the early 1970s.

In 2004 the City of Austin created a university Neighborhood for the students. In 2007 further mixed-use development was approved.
