Zoom in to see how the City of Austin proposes to rezone individual properties.
If Your Property Is Rezoned as R2A or R2B (Purple on Map):
If the city’s rezoning plan is approved, every residential property in Austin will be rezoned for greater density, effectively abolishing single-family zoning throughout the community. Land developers will be allowed to add a pair of large residences to any lot in the city that is 5,000 square feet or larger and has a home 15 years or older already on it. Up to six unrelated adults would be allowed to live in each of the lot’s three dwellings, and in many cases land developers will not be required to provide space for any additional parking.

If Your Property Is Rezoned as RM1 or R4 (Red or Orange on Map):
The “transition zones” proposed by the city council surround most of the major roadways and transit corridors in Austin. Inside them, land developers will be allowed to construct buildings 40-45 feet tall on individual lots, with 8-10 dwelling units in each. Residential lots that are 10,000 square feet or larger may be subdivided, allowing 16-20 dwelling units. Up to 60 percent of each lot can be covered by concrete or other impervious materials, and in many cases land developers will not be required to provide space for any additional parking.
