This time, it’s next door

Within the past year, the NYT has carried two features in its national edition about local real estate. Yesterday, there was another, this time datelined Bee Cave (“Battling to Keep the ‘Country’ in Texas Hill Country,” byline Kristina Shevory). Representatives of the usual outfits are quoted (i.e., S.O.S. and the Lower Colorado River Authority). According to this article, the LCRA’s extension of water lines has made large-scale development a profitable activity where it wasn’t before. Developments mentioned include West Cypress Hills, Terra Vista (peeled off from some of Willie Nelson’s land), and Belvedere (some on-line listings included houses with asking prices of $1 million and up). I found the comparisons between Austin and San Antonio one of the most interesting parts of this article. S.O.S. has already linked to this feature.
