It wasn’t that long ago that driving by the corner of Blanco Road and Wilderness Oak, we began to notice crews marking trees and flagging utilities. Soon construction began on a set of new apartments taking up the entire block. As the apartments come together, we thought we’d share what we’ve learned so far about the new Los Robles Apartments since it’s just down the road from our offices (at 21232 Gathering Oak, #107 – stop by when you’re ready to lease and we’ll gladly help you what you’re looking for).
Los Robles Apartments will offer a variety of one and two bedroom units in several three story configurations at their site on the corner on Blanco Road and Wilderness Oak. A planned 312 apartments on 13 acres, they are self-described as luxury apartments with square footages ranging from 668 to 1,195. Looks like all of the apartments will have balconies, with second and third floor units having optional secondary balconies off of bedrooms. Initial pricing for one bedrooms starts at $1,080 and $1,505 for two bedroom units.
Amenities are said to include a resort style pool and fitness center, both typical in apartments these days, but there is also mention of a natural preserve Biergarten. This of course intrigues us and we look forward to seeing how this part of the amenities comes together.
Interior spaces look to focus on modern design elements – granite counters, wood-look flooring, stainless steel appliances, under mount sinks, tile backsplashes, and under cabinet lighting. Los Robles is still under construction, so for now, there are only renderings and design mockups to view on their website, but we are eager to see the finished product.
The apartments don’t come without some controversy of course. Built on a large wooded area, the space was stripped clean of most of the trees before construction began and local residents have voiced concerns over traffic in the area. As anyone coming down Wilderness Oak to Blanco Road (or southbound on Blanco Road from neighborhoods like Timberwood Park) can tell you, it can be quite congested in the morning and there have been way too many accidents on Blanco Road as people try to turn on to it from auxiliary roads like Gathering Oak (which has no traffic lights). A new traffic light is set to go in to help alleviate some of the concerns, but many residents don’t feel it’s enough.
If you’d like to learn more or need assistance finding an apartment, contact one of our agents and they can help you find the apartment that meets your needs and fits your budget.
