A partnership between the Schertz Housing Authority and The NRP Group resulted in the groundbreaking of a new affordable apartment community in Schertz.

The new development is named Aviator 1518 due to its location on FM 1518 and proximity to Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph.

According to a Nov. 3 release, the development will include 300 units with up to four-bedroom floor plans. Rent in the community will range from $706-$2,245 per month, and amenities such as a playground, pool, clubhouse and fitness center will be included in the development.

“Central Texas has experienced immense growth over the past decade, and Schertz has felt this expansion across new industries, population, education and retail,” Schertz Mayor Ralph Gutierrez said in the release. “The demand for a dynamic range of housing in our community has never been higher, and we are thrilled to welcome Aviator 1518 to Schertz for our community.”

Since its founding in 1994, The NRP Group has developed more than 280 communities across the country and manages over 26,000 residential units, according to the business's website. Preleasing for the project is slated for 2025.
