Trends in recent years show a growing interest in the Texas suburbs. Outlying towns such as New Braunfels (located in-between San Antonio and Austin), Frisco (part of the Dallas/Fort Worth sprawl), Georgetown (a 45 minute drive north of Austin) and Pearland (near Houston) flew onto last year’s top ten list of the fastest-growing American cities with a population larger than 50,000. Census figures show that although the state has gained nearly half a million new citizens in a year, with 1,200 daily new residents on average, suburban counties are growing much faster than the biggest metropolitan areas. Collin County, north of Dallas, is projected to grow by an unheard of 386 percent over the next 35 years, which will put its population at roughly 3.8 million. Marcus Hiles notes that some counties are growing twice as fast as their adjacent urban neighbors, including Hays, Fort Bend and Kendall counties, who are experiencing 20-23 percent increases over the last five years. “Expansion into these areas is a logical progression,” he says. “As the total number of people looking for a place to call home increases, economists and developers expect to see the percentage of renters continue to rise as well.”
One of Western Rim Property Services’ most popular developments is the Mansions at Stone Hill, located just north of Austin, Texas. Marcus Hiles, founder and CEO of Western Rim Properties, designed the Mansions at Stone Hill to be a perfect complement between an energetic culture and the resilient beauty of the Texas landscape. Here, residents can enjoy the feel of a rural life, yet a vibrant, vivacious city is just a few miles down the road.
The Mansions at Stone Hill feature a 370-unit apartment complex with options available for both luxury and senior living. Hiles and Western Rim selected this Pflugerville location due to its proximity to Austin as well as important social locations like Home Depot, Target, Best Buy, 24-Hour Fitness, several fast-food restaurants, and a movie theatre. On site itself, residents have access to a social lounge with HDTV entertainment, an ultramodern fitness center, and a resort-style pool. A key component of the Western Rim Properties philosophy is to create a community spirit within the development, and the Mansions at Stone Hill provide that spirit in abundance.
“It’s really an ideal combination of factors behind the tech boom,” Marcus Hiles points out. “Texas, of course, is a very business friendly state with zero personal income and corporate taxes. Besides economic incentives, Austin is also renowned for its culture and art, relaxed healthy lifestyle and great weather. Additionally, the University of Texas at Austin brings in many talented young people from all over the world who make the city their home.” What it comes down to is that Austin is simply more affordable and maintains a much lower cost of living than coastal tech hot spots like Silicon Valley and New York.
The Mansions McKinney provides nothing but the most deluxe amenities for those who desire extravagance every day. You’ll enjoy access to an elaborate clubhouse featuring two luxurious, resort-style pools, a high-tech fitness center, and a modern lounge with HDTV entertainment. And those lucky enough to live in “The Square” will enjoy an elevated amenity offering. Whether relaxing in your posh home, indulging in the select community offerings, taking in the area’s delightful surroundings, or heading downtown for some entertainment, you’ll love every aspect of your lifestyle and home.
