Nestled in the heart of Fort Bend County, The Signorelli Co. is proud to announce the commencement of Phase 1 of Austin Point—a sprawling 4,700-acre master-planned community that promises to redefine modern living. This exciting development officially kicked off on September 21st, marking the beginning of an ambitious journey towards creating a vibrant and thriving town. In this blog post, we’ll delve into the details of this remarkable project and what you can expect from Austin Point.
A Glimpse into Austin Point
Austin Point, aptly dubbed a “master-planned town” by The Signorelli Co., is poised to become a thriving residential haven with a planned capacity for over 14,000 single- and multi-family homes. Anticipating a population of 50,000 residents, Austin Point is not just a place to live; it’s a community designed to meet the diverse needs and aspirations of its residents.
One of the standout features of this master-planned project is its vast mixed-use space, totaling a staggering 15 million square feet. This space will encompass multifamily residences, office spaces, medical facilities, retail establishments, and hospitality services. In essence, Austin Point is a self-sustained town, where residents can live, work, and play without having to venture far from home. The projected population is set to surpass that of the city of Rosenberg, solidifying Austin Point’s significance in Fort Bend County.
Phase 1: The Beginning of a Grand Vision
Phase 1 of Austin Point is already underway, and it’s nothing short of spectacular. Nine esteemed homebuilders, including Ashton Woods, Beazer Homes, Drees Homes, Castlerock, David Weekley Homes, Newmark Homes, Perry Homes, William David Homes, and Westin Homes, are actively shaping the community’s landscape. This phase is expected to introduce more than 400 homes to the market, with groundbreaking ceremonies scheduled for 2024.
But The Signorelli Co. doesn’t stop there; they are fully committed to tailoring the development to meet consumer demands. This means that, in addition to the standard housing offerings, Austin Point will feature active-adult communities, build-to-rent units, and other specialty residential products to cater to a wide range of preferences and lifestyles.
A Nod to History: The 1824
Austin Point’s name pays homage to the historical significance of the land and its original owner, William Tennant Austin, who acquired the land title in 1824. This rich history is interwoven into the fabric of the community, giving it a unique and authentic character.
One of the standout features of Austin Point is “The 1824,” a dedicated community event space designed to enhance residents’ quality of life. The 1824 will house a café and wine bar, a bodega, an outdoor concert and event lawn, a children’s play area, a beer garden, a food truck court, and an outdoor fitness area. Beyond this, residents will have access to green spaces, nature trails, and scenic areas like Moore Creek, providing ample opportunities for outdoor recreation and relaxation.
A Vision for the Future
Danny Signorelli, President and CEO of The Signorelli Co., envisions Austin Point as “the next great town in Texas.” His vision extends beyond just a place to live; it’s a fully integrated master-planned town that reflects modern living at its finest.
The project also entails the extension of Fort Bend Parkway and the Grand Parkway, ensuring improved accessibility and connectivity for all residents.
As Phase 1 of Austin Point unfolds, the excitement builds. Home sales are projected to commence in spring 2025, marking the beginning of a new chapter for those eager to make Austin Point their home.
