Austin Business Journal shares, "A development of over 200 “micro homes” is coming to San Marcos soon. 

Earlier this month, Casata broke ground on what will be a community of 210 tiny homes ranging from 500 to 800 square feet. Casata CEO Aaron Levy said this will be the largest community of micro homes in the region and potentially in the U.S. 

The community, which is about three miles north of San Marcos, will have several dog parks, six acres of trails and park space, a pool, a gym and much more. Levy said people will likely move into the new neighborhood in summer 2025.

There were 20% more luxury listings on the market in the greater metro area in the first quarter than a year ago, according to data from, which defines luxury as the top 10% of the market by listing price.

TOWERS writes, "The 41-story Vesper condo tower is now complete in the Rainey Street District of downtown Austin, with its first phase of move-ins kicking off this week. According to developers Pearlstone Partners and sales agency Prospect Real Estate, the building is currently 67 percent sold. The 452-foot tower broke ground in the summer of 2021, situated on a small 0.4-acre site at the edge of the neighborhood at 84 East Avenue, pretty tightly hemmed in on three sides by the Camden Rainey Street apartment building and a famously garish Homewood Suites. 

It’s just one of a forest of towers now rising in the Rainey District, with the perspective of the aerial shot below showing not one, not two, not three, but four separate tower projects underway…

Developer Mark IV has made updates to the long-anticipated The District project in Round Rock amid changes to the market. SCREENSHOT OF CITY OF ROUND ROCK DOCUMENTS

Austin Business Journal reports, "one of the region's most-anticipated projects is back on track — and much bigger than previously planned.

Eight years ago, Mark IV Capital, a Newport Beach, California-based commercial real estate firm, purchased a 66-acre plot near Interstate 35 and the State Highway 45 toll road for a project known as The District. But the plans subsequently stalled, mostly due to shifting market conditions stemming from the coronavirus pandemic.

AXIOS Austin writes, "aiming to win older empty nesters, Austin apartment developers are now including spas and libraries.

Why it matters: More senior communities look like modern luxury apartments.

Driving the news: America is going gray. Baby boomers and their kids make up a growing share of the country's population, according to Census Bureau data.

  • In greater Austin, the share of renter households that are 55 or older has hopped from 11.1% in 2005 to 17.6% last year.

What's happening: Apartment developers are courting empty nesters as young as 55 years old, dangling prime locations, easy living and amenities you'd expect at a five-star hotel, senior living expert James Hill with Houston-based Kirksey Architecture tells Axios.
