Aura High Pointe construction is well underway and the 322-unit apartment project went vertical in mid July at 6701 RM 620 N. at the new bypass road off RM 2222.
Developers are aiming to open in the spring of 2024. The five-building, class A complex is in the River Place subdivision in the Panther Hollow and Lake Travis water supply rural watershed.
The project consists of two 4-story wood-framed apartment buildings, two 3-story wood-framed apartment buildings, a single-story club building and a leasing building, a swimming pool, breezeway-accessed garages, surface parking and carports, according to the geotechnical engineering report.
Robbie Searcy, public information specialist at City of Austin Development Services Department, shared that the project was approved on September 30, 2022. The site plan was approved for the “new construction of a multi-family residential complex including a leasing office and business amenity with pool and detached carports.”
Aura High Pointe buildings will sit on 14 acres of land. The impervious cover is allowed on 32.5 acres of the 65-acre site, according to site plans.
The main entrance is off RM 620, closer to BBQ Outfitters. Plans show an emergency-only access to the 620/2222 connector bypass.
The owner of the Four Points site is listed as PRIII TRG High Pointe Owner, LP and the Dallas-based developer of the project is Trinsic Residential Group.
TRG targets prime regions across the United States and lists various project sites in Texas on its website including the sold Aura 33Hundred complex in Austin and Aura 35Fifty in Round Rock.
Nearly two years ago, TRG opened Aura Avery Ranch at 13100 Avery Ranch Blvd. The 339-unit, class A apartment community is south of Cedar Park off HWY 183A and near Lakeline Boulevard.
The community has high-end interior finishes, including stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, designer backsplash, wood-style floors, upgraded lighting and plumbing packages, and balconies. It has a resort-style pool, courtyard, dog park, separate fitness building and yoga lawn, club room, and a cybercafé.
The TRG principals have developed or acquired in excess of 20,000 units with a total capitalization of over $4 billion of multifamily real estate, its website states. In addition to Texas, the firm has projects in Colorado, South Florida, Arizona, and the Carolinas.
TRG develops high-density urban communities, focusing on areas of population and business growth as well as suburban, high-end institutional, garden-style properties.
For the Four Points project, the landscape architect is Benkendorfer & Associates, the engineer is Jones Carter Inc. and the architect is Womack & Hampton Architects, LLC.
The 65-acre Aura High Pointe site is to have five buildings including two four-story, two three-story and a single story clubhouse.
