KB Home (NYSE: KBH), one of the nation’s largest and most recognized homebuilders, today announced it has acquired land in New Braunfels to develop a new home community called West Village at Creekside, where the builder plans to construct 469 Built to Order homes in the growing northeast IH-35 corridor. Land development will commence this summer, with a grand opening scheduled for January 2015.
Planned amenities at KB Home’s West Village at Creekside include a private swimming pool, picnic pavilion, walking trails and a children’s playscape. Retail shopping, Comal ISD schools, the popular Buc-ee’s convenience store and The Village at Creekside, the largest healthcare hub between San Antonio and Austin, are also nearby.
“The Village at Creekside includes a hospital, labs, medical offices, fitness facilities and serves as a lifestyle center for the local area,” said Brett Dietz, president of KB Home’s San Antonio division. “We are excited to offer our beautiful, new energy-efficient homes to those who want to call this growing part of New Braunfels home.”
KB Home will offer two collections of homes at West Village at Creekside that can be customized to meet the individual needs of today’s homebuyers. Because KB homes are Built to Order, homebuyers can choose and personalize almost everything about their home, from number of bedrooms and baths, to décor choices like cabinetry, flooring and fixture styles.
KB homeowners at West Village at Creekside will also have the ability to lower their home’s energy costs by incorporating high efficiency SunPower solar power. All KB homes are ENERGY STAR® certified and are built with WaterSense labeled faucets and fixtures that can help homeowners conserve natural resources while also saving money on utilities. Buyers who choose to include solar panels will be able to reduce those costs even further.
Already one of the region’s most active homebuilders, KB Home currently has two New Braunfels communities open for new home sales, Caprock and Legend Point, and 23 other communities in the San Antonio area. Most recently, KB Home opened its Park Vista, CrossCreek and Esperanza communities in San Antonio, and has plans for future growth.
