“We believe it is important to incorporate affordable housing in a part of the city where land values are high, and it’s economically challenging to do so,” said Garrett Martin, Manager of ARG Bull Creek LTD. “The Grove at Shoal Creek is a once in a lifetime opportunity to build a project that provides an array of community benefits encompassed in one project: expansive parkland, diversity of housing types, extensive traffic mitigation that's paid for, heritage tree preservation, storm water detention above and beyond requirements to help reduce Shoal Creek drainage issues, access to exemplary schools, public transportation, and neighborhood businesses. And now we can add affordable housing to that list of benefits.”

“It is clear to everyone in Austin that affordable housing is in great need throughout Austin. Through our community engagement, we heard a call for affordable housing from the community. While this is an economic challenge, we believe it is the right thing to do for the project, the neighborhood and the city,” said Martin.

A Local Film Project Comes to The Grove

We like to support local businesses.

So when a local Austin filmmaker asked if she could film some of her Kickstarter-funded movie in the oak grove on our property, we said, ”Action!”

The movie is called "The Honor Farm." It is a teen thriller set on prom night, directed by Karen Skloss. They will be filming on our property during the evening of June 6th and June 7th. 

Director Karen Skloss is an award-winning filmmaker. Her work has been shown on HBO, in the Museum of Modern Art, in wide theatrical release and in film festivals internationally.
