NexMetro, Mosaic Break Ground on Austin-Area Community
The project is expected to be online by summer 2025.
NexMetro Communities and Mosaic have begun construction on a 224-unit apartment project in the Austin suburbs. Avilla Berry Creek will be located in Georgetown, Texas, and is expected to be online in summer 2025.
The cottage-style apartment community will offer one-, two- and three-bedroom units ranging from 690 to 1,265 square feet. The apartments will be built with private backyards and front patios, while the community’s amenities will include a pool, clubhouse, community garden, dog park and open space areas.
Located at 1101 Bch Way in Georgetown, Avilla Berry Creek will be near Interstate 35, providing for an approximately 35-minute commute to Austin. Residents will also be less than 10 miles away from Georgetown’s central business district, which offers several restaurant and retail options.
Kyle AuBuchon, managing director at Mosaic, said in prepared remarks that Austin has been seeing two percent year-over-year population growth over the last decade, but residential development has not kept up with that pace. Meanwhile, he noted, people are being priced out of buying homes due to increasing interest rates.
Staying active in Arizona
While NexMetro and Mosaic have worked together in the past, Avilla Berry Creek represents the first project in the Austin metro for both companies. NexMetro and Mosaic previously partnered to develop Avilla Palomino, a 197-unit build-to-rent community in Glendale, Ariz. Construction on that project began in August, with plans to deliver in summer 2024.
Mosaic has been active in the Arizona multifamily market and has worked with other partners on its residential projects. In December 2022, Mosaic partnered with Atlantic Jasper and broke ground on The Flats at Jasper, a 240-unit build-to-rent project in Prescott Valley, Ariz. Earlier this year, Mosaic and its development partner Family Development started preleasing for Town Germann, a 209-unit luxury townhouse community in Gilbert, Ariz.
