StreetLights Residential has completed The Asher, a 377-unit rental community that is part of the company’s multiphase Presidio luxury multifamily development in northwest Austin growing Lakeline neighborhood.

The company, a national multifamily and mixed-use developer, had strong demand for the first phases, The Elizabeth, a 377-unit luxury apartment community completed in 2019, and The Michael, a 415-unit apartment and townhome community which opened in 2016. Last October, StreetLights Residential began construction of The Maris, the 276-unit fourth phase of the Presidio developments.

Greg Coutant, vice president of development at the Dallas-based firm, said in a prepared statement that Austin has been a powerful development hub for the company’s properties, with increased interest in each new multifamily project. In addition to the Presidio properties, the firm has completed The Bowen, a 340-unit luxury high-rise in The Domain; Flatiron Domain, a five-story luxury community; The Catherine, a 19-story, 300-unit luxury high-rise in downtown Austin; and The Kenzie at The Domain, a six-story, 279-unit building.
