East Riverside Oltorf Area




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.  

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.  Although in the past it was 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 the East Riverside area living west of Pleasant Valley Road attend Austin ISD schools and those east of Pleasant Valley Road attend Del Valle Schools.

Austin ISD students go to either Allison Elementary 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 Law and Humanities Magnet for AISD and their mascot is the Falcons.

For high school, AISD students attend either Travis High School, Austin High School, or Eastside Memorial Green Tech High School.


There are many employers in this area, and downtown is just a few miles away.  Cypress Semiconductor, an American semiconductor and manufacturing company, is located in East Riverside-Oltorf off Oltorf just west of Montopolis.

Tokyo Electron, a Japanese semiconductor and manufacturing company, has its American headquarters just down the road from Cypress.    

Oracle is also building a huge new campus on Lakeshore Drive. 

East Riverside has seen a ton of new dining options in the Amli Southshore development.  Mod Pizza allows you to pick your own unlimited amount of toppings for your pie before it’s sent to be cooked in a pizza oven.  Best of all, it’s super fast!  They also have beer on draft, wine, and tasty salads.

Pho Please serves delicious Vietnamese Pho, Bun, and Bahn Mi’s in a vibrant, modern setting.  Fast and well-priced, Pho Please will make your tummy happy.

Emo’s is a popular live music venue that wears its punk ethos on its sleeve.  Now relocated to East Riverside from Red River Street, Emo’s has a high end lighting and sound system to make sure your concert experience is top-notch.
