The grand opening for Homestead Oaks, one of our favorite Foundation Communities affordable housing projects, took place on March 30th, 2016.  The fabulous 134-unit project is almost
completely full, and will be home to numerous Austin-area families.  As you can see from the aerial view, the
Project is appropriately named for the existing Live Oaks and Red
Oaks that are a main feature of the site. Our Design Team, H+UO, Studio Balcones, and Axiom Engineers, worked
hard to protect and highlight these treasures throughout the property. Additional
sustainable design features include solar energy production and rainwater
harvesting, as well as generous walking trails, a sports field, sport court, and

playground amenities built around an existing Heritage Oak.
We are also pleased
to announce that Homestead Oaks will be part of the 20th
Annual Cool House Tour, to be held on Sunday June 12, 2016. This
tour honors the professionals who help to create smart, energy efficient
and comfortable residential projects throughout Austin.  It is a collaboration of Austin Energy Green Building (AEGB) and the Texas Solar Energy Society
(TXSES), and is the primary fundraiser for TXSES.
Come out and join us under the trees on June 12, 2016!!!
