GEORGETOWN, TX - Wood Partners, a national leader in multi-family real estate development, announced the groundbreaking of its newest luxury residential community - Alta Austin Avenue - in Georgetown, Texas. Construction is underway, and the community is scheduled to open in Winter 2021.
"We are excited to continue to expand our footprint in the Greater Austin MSA," said Bart Barrett, Managing Director for Wood Partners. "Georgetown is one of the fastest growing cities in America with booming economic growth. We are excited for the opportunity to meet the needs of the ever expanding population by providing high-quality, reasonably priced housing."
Alta Austin Avenue will feature best-in-class amenities and finishes. The community's 312 apartment homes will feature Whirlpool stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, designer tile backsplashes, 42" cabinets, wood-style flooring, tile in the bathrooms and full-sized washer and dryers.

Located at 2601 North Austin Avenue, the new community is centrally located along heavily traveled I-35, offering convenient access to surrounding residential communities including Round Rock, Leander, Hutto, and Cedar Park. I-35 also provides quick access to Austin which is only 30 miles south of the community. The community will be located just north of Georgetown High School and is directly across the street from the school district's stadium.
The North Austin area has increasingly become a preferred location for large corporate tenants and is home to major employers including Dell, Samsung, GM, Emerson, The Home Depot Technology Center and HID. Oracle Corporation and Tesla are two of the latest tech companies to announce their relocation to the Austin area. The Georgetown area also has a robust health system including Baylor Scott & White Health, St. David's Georgetown Hospital, St. David's Round Rock Medical Center and Seton Medical Center Williamson County.
Additionally, Georgetown's first master-planned industrial business park - NorthPark35 - is in phase one of development and is expected to be completed in spring of 2021. The project is located one mile from Alta Austin Avenue and will include two buildings totaling more than 330,000 square feet, as well as the extension of Aviation Drive. One building will be partially occupied by Georgetown-based Texas Speed and Performance, and the remaining space will be available for future industrial tenants.
