Support Our Historic Plan for Affordable Housing

This week, we are announcing a historic plan to build more than 180 units of affordable and workforce housing in one of Austin’s most affluent neighborhoods near Austin’s urban core.

Read the news coverage below. Because our plan is so unprecedented and needed in our city, the local media has taken notice. 

If you share our vision for The Grove at Shoal Creek and support our proposal for affordable housing, please click here to send one email that will reach the Mayor and all of the City Council Members.

“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.  

We hope you'll support our vision for Affordable Housing at The Grove at Shoal Creek.
