AUSTIN, TX - Archstone—a leader in apartment investment, development and operations—announced today that it will celebrate the completion of its new Austin luxury apartment development, Archstone Tech Ridge, at a grand opening event Oct. 7 at the property. The community – which was developed in a joint venture effort with Bluerock Real Estate, a national investment firm with a vast portfolio of multifamily and commercial assets – will provide free food, drinks and entertainment during the event that will be open to the public from 6 to 9 p.m.
Well-known Austin band—Love at War—will headline the event, which will also offer attendees a chance to win an iPad, a Dell computer and two three-day passes to Austin City Limits (all with no purchases necessary) through a random raffle drawing. Tours of Archstone Tech Ridge will be available from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and a VIP meet-and-greet and ribbon cutting will be held earlier in the day.
"There truly is no better place to live in the Austin Tech Ridge area," said Donald Davidoff, group vice president and head of marketing for Archstone. "People in the community and apartment seekers alike have offered nothing but rave reviews during visits, and they're supporting their opinions by signing a lot of leases."
Just minutes north of downtown Austin, Archstone Tech Ridge is located at 305 E. Yager Ln., Austin, Texas 78753. Close to numerous employers, as well as fantastic shopping, dining and entertainment destinations, the luxury apartment development is ideally situated to produce long-term value for residents, as well as for Archstone, Bluerock and the surrounding neighborhood.
Inside the community, residents have access to a selection of exclusive amenities, including a 24-hour fitness center with free weights and cardio equipment, a Click! Café Internet Lounge with complimentary Wi-Fi and a resort-style pool with poolside cabanas. The Austin apartments will also showcase spacious floor plans, crown molding, stainless steel appliances and full-size washers and dryers.

"The live entertainment, free food and drink and, of course, chance to win some pretty awesome prizes make the grand opening event the perfect time to visit."
