With some popular cities seeing incredible growth, not only is buying a home become nearly impossible, but rental options are getting slimmer. The key to successful living in these types of cities is to think outside the traditional apartment block.
Austin’s Casata community will include 66 rental homes for micro living.
Texas-based company, Casata, is creating a micro living community that elevates renting to a whole new level. Casta owner, Aaron Levy, created the business in summer of 2020. The concept of the first Austin community is to create a series of independent homes set into a vibrant area of the city with access to both nature, open space, and great amenities.
The floor plans include both one- and two-bedroom options.
The homes include dedicated living rooms and kitchens with full-sized appliances.
Renters choose from 66 homes ranging from 400 square feet to 758 square feet. Each home includes cozy bedrooms, full kitchens, work spaces, living rooms, in-unit washer/dryer units, and outdoor patios. All this without having to share walls with another person and for about $1,200 to $1,500 per month.
The homes also have ground floor bedrooms and work spaces.
The community is set on six acres with a pool, fitness center, club house/co-working space, dog run and picnic spaces. There are storage buildings for things like bikes and sports gear, and a dedicated space for food trucks to park and serve. Innovative features include solar-powered a community center and electric vehicle charging stations.
