Archstone Tech Ridge, Austin’s newest high tech, luxury apartment community, celebrated completion of construction with its grand opening event last week. Almost two-thirds leased going into the grand opening, the community experienced a warm welcome and a wave of new tenant applications upon the property’s unveiling.
“I think the word really got out after the grand opening about what an incredible product we have here,” said Terri Boss, community manager for Archstone Tech Ridge. “We were extremely busy showing the property this past weekend, despite the fact it was ACL weekend.”
The grand opening event featured food from Salt Lick Barbeque and music by local Austin favorite, Love at War. The evening culminated with excited yelps from the big prize drawing winners, which were Ukeme Essien, winner of two three-day passes to Austin City Limits, Vivian Burns, winner of a Dell computer, Cynthia Villarreal, who won an iPad, and Wendy Kell, winner of a Maggiano gift card.
“We can’t be more pleased to have located in Austin’s tech center,” said Donald Davidoff, group vice president and head of marketing for Archstone. “This is the right place at the right time, because this area can support and wants a product like this, rich in amenities and high tech features.”
Minutes north of downtown Austin, Archstone Tech Ridge, is located at 305 E. Yager Ln., Austin, Texas 78753. Close to numerous employers, as well as fantastic shopping, dining and entertainment destinations, the luxury apartment development is ideally situated to produce long-term value for residents, as well as for Archstone, Bluerock and the surrounding neighborhood.
Inside the community, residents have access to a selection of exclusive amenities, including a 24-hour fitness center with free weights and cardio equipment, a Click! Café Internet Lounge with complimentary Wi-Fi and a resort-style pool with poolside cabanas. The Austin apartments will also showcase spacious floor plans, crown molding, stainless steel appliances and full-size washers and dryers.
Archstone, which manages the community, is currently conducting tours of the apartment homes and accepting online leasing applications on property and at ArchstoneApartments.com/.
