It's called LoCo, and it's getting a redo

“LoCo is still in its infancy as a label and is mostly undefined. In the real-estate world, LoCo can be anywhere from Interstate 35 west to Manchaca Road and from Ben White Boulevard south to Stassney Lane. This includes the neighborhoods of Battle Bend and Southwood.

As with any new nickname, time will be the arbiter of its acceptance and boundaries. But whether the dozen subdivisions just south of Ben White Boulevard are lumped together by a common name or not, they share certain traits by virtue of location that real estate developers and agents are getting excited about. ”
