The VIDA community began construction last week.
The 600-acre community adjacent to Texas A&M University – San Antonio will be home to:
- 4,000 residential units (single family homes, townhomes, duplexes and apartments)
- 40 acres of greenways, trails and open space including “THE MAD” –
- 35 acre Madla Greenway that runs the length of the community featuring trails and open space
- 300,000 square feet of commercial/retail
- Zócalo plaza featuring shops, dining, nightlife and events and activities across from the A&M campus
The first phase of development will be located in the northwestern corner of the property, providing 250 single-family homes, 2 apartment facilities and 20 acres of easily-accessed commercial property. The first residential properties are planned to be available at the beginning of 2022.
Single family homes will be constructed by three different builders. Builders and home pricing are anticipated to be announced later this year, but homes are anticipated to accommodate first buyers and move-up buyers with a variety of housing options.
“To consider everyone’s safety, we did not host a ground-breaking celebration,” said SouthStar Communities President Thad Rutherford. “We will have plenty of opportunities to celebrate VIDA as we deliver great new features for the community, we look forward to showing people what we’ve been working on.”
