Real estate developers quickly realized the many opportunities offered by the new highway and often touted the advantages of new subdivisions located on or near the new interregional highways. The developer of the Georgian Acres subdivision in north Austin published an advertisement in the local newspaper that extolled the neighborhood’s proximity to the new interregional highway. Further promoting its appeal, the ad noted that property owners paid no city taxes but could enjoy nearby amenities such as a school and “community” (shopping) centers.georgian-acres-classified-june-15-1947 The subdivision included land between Old US 81 (Lamar Boulevard) and the new interregional highway, and thus had access to both roadways.
