Lēva Living is offering a first look at its community design as it prepares for a February ground breaking of its first development, a 16-acre community in Atascocita.
A hybrid model for the single-family-rental market, Lēva Living will offer detached homes stacked two deep, each with gated backyards. The one- and two-story exteriors will feature modern elements such as metal roofs and a complementing mix of brick, stone and siding that will give the entire community a cohesive landscape. Scheduled lawn maintenance is also included.
“This will not be a traditional build-to-rent neighborhood,” said Jennifer Orr, president and co-founder of Lēva Living. “We will retain some elements of an apartment community such as strict design standards, full maintenance, generous amenities and on-site maintenance and professional management, but will offer the privacy and backyards that apartment dwellers lack. It will be a carefree experience that we believe will appeal particularly to empty nesters and millennials looking to leave apartment life behind.”
Three floor plans are offered, each with open-concept living areas, walk-in closets and front porches. One-, two- and three-bedroom plans are available ranging from 773-to-1,358 square feet. Danze and Davis Architects designed the floor plans. Pricing has not been determined, but Jeff Williams, executive vice president of finance and co-founder says similar hybrid product rents typically run at least 10 percent higher than same-size apartments.
Williams said infrastructure work will begin in mid-February, with home construction expected to begin mid-2022. Geis Development, a custom homebuilder in Spring Valley, will build the homes.
“Our first phase will consist of 20 homes and our amenity center,” Williams said.
The amenity complex will include a well-appointed clubhouse with a comfortable seating area, fully equipped fitness center, outdoor kitchen and swimming pool and spa.
When complete, Lēva Living’s Atascocita neighborhood will be home to 162 homes. It is located at 17260 West Lake Houston Parkway. Learn more about Lēva Living at levaliving.com.
