After breaking ground in 2018 near the entrance of the Greyrock Ridge neighborhood, the new senior living community at 12100 Archeleta Blvd., Austin, could have its first residents move in by early 2021.

Owned by Circle C Ranch resident Bob Ruggio and managed by Capstone Real Estate Services, ArborView is a 62+ active-living community that will have 151 total units at build-out. The community will offer 10 different floor plans, with one-bedroom options between 631-784 square feet, and two-bedroom plans from 935-1,121 square feet. The 24-acre property was crafted into a community that embraces the active lifestyles of those in Circle C and one that Ruggio could see himself moving into in the future.

“We think a lot of our residents will be people who already live in Circle C now who want to get into maintenance-free living or are maybe looking to downsize, or that they have family members who live in Circle C and want to move closer to them,” Capstone Regional Manager Melissa Morrison said.

Along with traditional amenities including an outdoor pool area and common spaces, ArborView will feature a demonstration kitchen, an on-site movie theater, a salon and craft rooms, Morrison said. There will also be a dog park with a wash station and a community garden for residents.

“Bob pals around with his neighbors on weekends and outside, and that’s the kind of environment that we’re wanting to create here at ArborView with the amenities,” she said.


Due to its proximity in Southwest Austin on a hill, Morrison said units either have a Hill Country view or a view of the Austin skyline. She also said ArborView will be the first senior active-living community in Circle C and one of only a handful in Austin south of the Colorado River.

"This area of Austin does not have anything like it,” she said. “People in this area who are looking for this kind of solution either for themselves or for family members have been waiting for something like this, and it is almost here.”

Although construction is slated to continue through the fall, Property Manager Erika Lopez said the ArborView management team will begin giving tours of the property and of one of its finished units by the end of October, with preleasing beginning at that time. She said the community’s first set of residents may move in as early as January, with an official opening expected in March.
