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.

Community Impact Austin writes, "while many areas in the Hill Country are built out, including West Lake Hills and Rollingwood, the Lake Travis area still has many high-end residential real estate developments in the works.

Residential developments continue to be a significant area of focus in Bee Cave, Lakeway and Spicewood.

Jones said although there are a couple of multifamily developments in the area, single-family homes, often associated with a plethora of…

TexasMonthly writes, "near the edge of a cliff that plunges hundreds of feet down to the shore of Lake Austin, a five-thousand-square-foot steel-frame structure with tentlike walls houses the potential future of ultraluxury real estate marketing: a holodeck.

The term comes from Star Trek, in which Federation starships were equipped with special rooms where crew members could create and interact with holographic environments. At Lake Austin, the enormous space brings to virtual life, in photographic detail, one of the most opulent condo buildings Texas has ever seen. Its creator bills it as the first installation of its caliber anywhere.

Let’s back up. When entrepreneur Jonathan Coon announced his plans to build a sprawling complex along the top…
