Hamilton Reserve Ranch Project Spotlight

This month, our Property Spotlight series showcases Hamilton Reserve Ranch, a 738 +/- acre ranch in Dripping Springs. Just off 24814 Hamilton Pool Rd, this Hill Country ranch is only 35 minutes from downtown Austin and 15 minutes from Lakeway, Hill Country Galleria, and Bee Cave. 

Hamilton Reserve Ranch is a conservation focused ranch with several unique features, including panoramic vistas, Hill Country views, excellent tree coverage, a beautiful seasonal creek, and multiple building sites. There is not another ranch with these features and size this close to downtown Austin. 

Dedication to Conservation 

The conservation easement allows for livestock, hunting activities, family compounds, barns, pools, stables, arenas, equipment barns, toy barns, etc. Overall, this is an attractive ranch opportunity with three 20-acre building envelopes.

We are partnering with Dave Murray to sell Hamilton Reserve Ranch. Parties can purchase the entire ranch,  but the property is also offered as two separate ranches. 

Entirety: 738 +/- acres, 3 building envelopes 

Ranch 1: 191 +/- acres, 1 building envelope 

Ranch 2: 547 +/- acres, 2 building envelopes

The Future of The Johnny 

The Johnny is currently under construction with a completion date set for January 2023. Since breaking ground in November, The Johnny has been full steam ahead on construction and is now framing. This property sits in proximity to the major development corridors along Lamar Blvd and Burnet Road. Additionally, The Johnny is located close to Downtown Austin, The Domain, The University of Texas, the ACC Highland Redevelopment, and Mueller. Who doesn’t want to be close to the action?

The Johnny will provide residents with sophisticated living in a boutique development that offers an alternative to the large 300-unit plus communities that saturate the market.  We are also very excited about our wellness balcony, which will feature a hot and cold swim spa and provide residents with a space to relax and recharge.”  – Managing Director Michael Bernstein

The Goodwin Multifamily Development Apartments in East Austin

The Geyser Group is highlighting our upcoming project, The Goodwin, located just off the intersection of Springdale Road and Airport Boulevard in East Austin. We are partnering with Sabot Development and Cadence McShane Construction on this 363-unit, class-A apartment community in a prime East Austin Opportunity Zone.

The Goodwin will provide housing to the growing Austin population with 326 market-rate and 37 affordable housing units. Additionally, there will be 2,400 square feet of retail space aimed at providing residents and the neighborhood with access to another local restaurant or bodega. The Goodwin is located directly across the street from Springdale General, a 165,000 square foot mixed-use complex, and Springdale Green, an 875,000 square foot office that is expected to deliver in Q1 2024.

Our Progress on The Goodwin in East Austin 

The Goodwin is currently under construction with an expected final completion date in Q1 2024.  The first set of units are expected to deliver in Summer 2023.  Construction is proceeding as planned, with work underway on the parking garage.

The Geyser Group is thrilled to see the development come to fruition. Who knew dirt and cranes could make us so excited? Ultimately, Geyser aims to give East Austin residents high-quality apartment living combined with a prime location, and Goodwin will do just that. Geyser is committed to building the foundation for the future of East Austin and giving residents the experience of a lifetime. Following construction, 10% of the units will be affordable housing, with priority given to individuals who formerly lived on the 60’s building formerly on the property. As part of this project, those individuals were also offered financial literacy classes and a relocation assistance package. The Geyser Group is excited to have the opportunity to combine up-scale housing with social impact initiatives in East Austin.

The Goodwin Has Much to Offer Future Residents

A quote from Managing Director Michael Bernstein, 

“We are excited about so many aspects of this project. It has a great location walkable to Springdale General, the Austin Bouldering Project, and Jay Paul Company’s transformative Springdale Green project. We will have best-in-class amenities featuring two pools, an expansive dog park, and multiple entertainment spaces. And we will be adding 37 affordable units to the area. Combining location and community is at the core of this project, and The Geyser Group cannot wait for it to come to life over the next two years.”

Breaking Ground on a Boutique, Alternative to Austin Living

On November 9th, The Geyser Group and The Sephira Group broke ground on The Johnny, a boutique alternative to Austin living. The Johnny will be a 76-unit multifamily community in the Highland neighborhood, a highly sought after location near downtown, UT campus, and the Triangle. This property will feature condominium- like design elements that differ from traditionally large housing developments. Breaking ground on this property has been the highlight of our month! 

If location is  what you are looking for, then look no further! The Johnny provides a modern solution for those looking to live near the heart of the city. It is located steps from the red-, orange-, and blue rail lines at Crestview Station, and adjacent to the grocery stores, restaurants, coffee shops, and bookstore at The Crescent shopping center. The Johnny’s central location reduces the cost and emissions of long commutes. Additionally, The Johnny will offer limited affordable housing options to those who earn below 60% of the median family income. 

“In the years we’ve been developing in Austin, we’ve seen it become one of the least affordable cities in the nation,” said Matt McDonnell, founder and CEO of The Geyser Group. “The COVID-19 pandemic has only exacerbated the problem. By providing a spacious, metro-adjacent environment, The Johnny addresses an underserved community and puts a dent in Austin’s affordability crisis.”

Affordability is a rising problem in the Austin market. Through our efforts, we hope to provide opportunity for the community to experience the wonderful development that is The Johnny. Here’s to breaking ground!

Breaking Ground on a Groundbreaking Development: Goodwin Apartments

The Geyser Group and Cadence McShane Construction Company are breaking ground on the new Goodwin Apartments. We have worked closely with Davies Collaborative and Sabot Development to handpick all the design elements that will go into this project. With outstanding exterior and interior design, it is no surprise that everyone involved in this project is ecstatic to see construction begin. 

Located in prime East Austin, the multi-use development will add 364 residential units and 5,000 square feet of commercial space to the growing area. Since 2019, East Austin has become the hit location for up-and-coming bars, restaurants, and other retail developments. 

The area was deemed one of the fastest-growing areas in the city prior to the pandemic making the community in East Austin incredibly diverse. With new multipurpose developments comes the need for new housing. The new Goodwin Apartments will provide an abundance of opportunities to live where the action is.

Following construction, 10% of the units will be affordable housing, prioritizing existing tenants at the existing complex. Current residents will be eligible for financial assistance and be given first preference to help them move back into the new development. Residents will be given access to free classes on financial literacy through Framework CDC. 

Breaking ground on projects that will benefit us and the community is something we strive for. The Geyser Group believes in opportunity, and Goodwin will provide Austin residents with up-scale housing combined with a number of social opportunities.
