Mueller — the master-planned community that was redeveloped from the former Robert Mueller Municipal Airport in Central Austin — is the greenest neighborhood in the country, tied with the Valley View community in Chicago


The rankings were determined by national residential brokerage Redfin, which is based in Seattle


About 39 percent of homes listed for sale in Mueller have green features, such as solar panels, low-flow faucets, dual pane windows, energy efficient appliances or are LEED and/or Energy Star certified


The Galindo neighborhood in South Austin is ranked seventh on the list. It’s located between Oltorf Street and Ben White Boulevard and from First Street west to the railroad tracks. About 30 percent of the listed homes for sale there have green features


Though it didn’t make it into the Top 10, the Rosedale neighborhood in North Austin is the third-greenest in the Austin market, according to Redfin data
