Construction Kicks Off At Zero-Energy-Ready Texas Development

Model home construction is under way at a $2 billion master-planned development in Austin that will be the largest zero-energy ready housing community in the nation.

The first neighborhood in Whisper Valley, called Whisper Rising, features homes built by Avi Homes and Pacesetter Homes with prices ranging from the upper $100s to $300s. The two builders have begun construction on about 30 homes ranging in size from 1,200 to 3,100 square feet and are taking reservations for the first 237 homes. Homes will be ready for occupancy early next year.
