Hillwood Communities Partners with BB Living on Single-Family-Rental Homes at Harvest in Argyle

NORTHLAKE, Texas and ARGYLE, Texas, July 12, 2022 /PRNewswire/ —  Hillwood Communities, a Perot Company, and BB Living, a leader in the build-to-rent (BTR) market, announced they are partnering on a single-family-rental (SFR) neighborhood within Harvest, an award-winning residential agrihood community located in Northlake and Argyle at I-35W and FM 407, just north of State Highway 114.

“Single-family for lease homes are in high demand,” said Fred Balda, president of Hillwood Communities, the developer of Harvest. “This new product not only allows families who don’t want home ownership, a chance to live in a great community like Harvest, they are a perfect solution for buyers in transition and relocation buyers new to the area. We teamed with BB Living for this new venture because they build a first-class product and experience that feels like an extension of our masterplan”

BB Living has partnered with Toll Brothers to expand the concept in over 30 communities nationwide, establishing themselves as the best-in-class, BTR builder and operator with over 5,000 homes spread across 10 markets. BB Living elevates the joy of master-planned living by simplifying life and offering unexpected and inspiring experiences.

BB Living will build 191 high quality homes in Harvest that range from 3 to 4 bedrooms and 1,800 to 2,500 square feet. Families will benefit from the existing amenities and award-winning lifestyle program. The company will also offer on-site management.

“We’ve been doing this for a decade now and have learned a lot of lessons,” said Branden Lombardi, president of BB Living. “Our residents want a sense of community and Harvest is very intentional about delivering that. Renting was not always viewed as a good option, but we are changing that perception by delivering unique neighborhoods in great communities, resort-style amenities, superior locations and a focus on the resident experience.

Harvest is a tight-knit community with the ideal combination of hometown nostalgia and future-focused planning. Residents of the agrihood enjoy a commercial farm with orchards and gardens, an 11-acre lake, four pools, playgrounds, parks, miles of walking trails, a yoga lawn, workout facilities, event venues, and a dog park. Harvest’s award-winning lifestyle program has become the standard that other programs are judged by with hundreds of events, gatherings, and activities each year and a full-time, on-site lifestyle team. Students in the single-family-rental neighborhood will attend Argyle ISD.

BB Living has designed all new floor plans for Harvest. Construction is underway and pre-leasing will begin in September of 2022.
