Avalonpark Texas, LP breaks ground for first two phases at The Springs of Walnut Creek in North Austin

AUSTIN, TX --- Avalonpark Texas, LP, the Texas joint venture of Florida-based Avalon Park Group in Orlando, broke ground this week for 53 single-family home sites in the first two phases at The Springs of Walnut Creek, located near I-35 and Yager Lane in North Austin.

 Richard Kunz (top right photo), who heads Avalonpark Texas, LP, said he expects to complete construction of all 53 home sites in the third quarter 2011.

 Avalonpark Texas plans to start construction of 56 single-family home sites in a third phase at the Springs of Walnut Creek in the first half of 2012, Kunz said.

 Kunz said planning for a fourth phase that will include 30-50 town homes is about to get underway. Construction of town homes at the Springs of Walnut Creek probably won’t start until the first quarter of 2013, he added.

 “We do not anticipate starting construction of town homes at the Springs of Walnut Creek until after we have substantially built out the single-family homes,” Kunz explained.

 Avalonpark Texas has hired Pape-Dawson Engineers of Austin and San Antonio as the project engineers and Austin-based Joe Bland Construction as the general contractor.

 David Weekley Homes will be the sole homebuilder for the subdivision.

 Avalon Park Group developed the 1,860-acre Avalon Park, an award-winning neotraditional community of more than 3,500 homes in east Orlando and New River Township, an 1,800-acre master planned community north of Tampa.
