Highlights

  • Median Household Income: $82,159
  • Median Age: 36
  • Average Household Size: 2

Pemberton Heights is situated on the far side of Shoal Creek in north central Austin. The area was largely untouched until the early 1900s due to the creek's propensity to destroy bridges that connected Pemberton with the rest of Austin. Development began in 1927 before it was annexed by the City of Austin. The neighborhood features some of Austin's most unique homes, including multi-storied houses with modernist architecture and houses engineered like castles that harken to hundreds of years ago. Some of Austin's most affluent entrepreneurs and successful business people own houses in the area.
