MileStone Community Builders is the largest locally-owned home builder in the Austin area. MileStone’s success is due in part to prioritizing customer needs and keeping their designs authentic to each individual neighborhood. Their latest project, The Grove, is a perfect example of this.

Vice President of Strategic Marketing Jared Glazar said a lot of the architectural influences for The Grove came from the surrounding area.

Located at 4211 Prevail Lane, The Grove opened in 2018. The 76-acre mixed use project—located in the heart of Austin, just a couple of miles from downtown—features restaurants, businesses, walking trails and a 16-acre park.

“Our ownership is based in Austin, so we really understand what makes each neighborhood special,” Glazar said. “A lot of our competitors will just bring in offerings that were designed for markets all over the country. In our communities, we offer products that are specifically designed for an Austin neighborhood.”

He said when the project was first designed, MileStone wanted The Grove to be a destination for shopping and dining, which is certainly becoming reality.

The Grove currently features businesses such as Halina Spa + Medical Rejuvenation, LOVE Cycling Studio, The Grove Market and Grove Liquor.

MileStone is continuing to work toward their goal of making The Grove a “gathering place” by adding several new businesses to the neighborhood this summer.

Two new restaurants will open at The Grove this summer: Carve American Grille and Verdad. According to The Grove's website, Carve is a polished steakhouse concept restaurant that uses fresh and eclectic ingredients, while Verdad offers an elevated 'sobremesa' experience, providing modern Mexican fare in a steakhouse setting."

“It’s so unique for a city that has gotten as large as Austin to have something like this so close to downtown,” Glazar said.

Another standout quality that makes The Grove unique is the blend of apartments, townhomes and single-family homes within the neighborhood, Glazar said.

The Grove is currently offering move-in ready homes, ranging from townhomes priced around $900,000 to single-family homes costing anywhere between $2 million to $2.5 million. The single-family homes are the last remaining in The Grove project, with about 6-7 left, Glazar said.

“If you’re into downtown living but you don’t want to have to brave the traffic and the parking, The Grove is like its own downtown in a little oasis,” Glazar said.

The Grove is also planning for future growth by adding apartments to the community called Adler at The Grove, which will welcome residents in the spring of 2023. These apartment homes will feature fresh and modern finishes and state-of-the-art amenities. Residents at Alder at The Grove will experience a convenient lifestyle with local restaurants and coffee shops right outside their door.

Glazar said MileStone is proud to have built thousands of homes across the region. For prospective homeowners who are looking for urban living, Glazar said now is an ideal time to purchase a home.

“Now is a great time to buy at The Grove because prices are as low as they’re ever going to be,” he said. “No doubt as the restaurants and mixed use opens, the best times of The Grove are still in the future.”

Glazar also said that interest rates are as steady and below the higher levels seen earlier in the year.

In addition to the financial incentives for potential residents, Glazar said the team at MileStone Community Builders is involved in the whole process of home ownership at The Grove.

MileSone Community Builders is “there from the first blade of grass getting moved to the customer moving into their home,” Glazar said.
