For the first time since construction started at Riata Austin two decades ago, the apartment community will see major renovations.

Property management company Greystar and ownership group BPP Alphabet MF Riata announced July 21 that significant upgrades and renovations have begun at Riata, located in Northwest Austin at 12300 Riata Trace Parkway.

The renovations, according to a July 21 news release, will include remodeling Riata’s common areas and amenities, including upgrades to the complex's main pool, outdoor dining area and bocce ball courts.

Renovations have also begun in Riata’s 11,000-square-foot gym area, with the additions of a new spin studio, a yoga deck, a barre studio, new fitness equipment, new locker rooms and an outdoor fitness area.

Riata is also working to add a music lounge and a bicycle repair shop to the complex, and developers will begin improvements to the community’s volleyball court, trail system, dog parks and grilling pavilion.

Developers will additionally work in phases to renovate 1,400 apartment units inside the 180-acre community, according to the July 21 news release. Riata said the renovations will include more open floor plans, wood flooring, upgraded fixtures and new appliances.

These renovations will occur as residents move out, according to the news release, and Riata told Community Impact Newspaper in an email it expects 70% of these renovations to be completed over the next two years.

Greystar expects renovations on Riata’s community features to complete by the end of the year, according to the news release.
