KB Home has finally opened The Reserve at Southton Ranch in Bexar County, just south of downtown San Antonio past I-37. When completed, this master-planned neighborhood will add 128 new homes to the area. KB Home is carefully developing the Southton Ranch subdivision to keep pace with the growth San Antonio’s petroleum industry has recently experienced. There are currently 268 homes occupied in Southton Ranch.
KB Homes believes that The Reserve will appeal to young professionals who want to live just south of Downtown along I-37, but want access to the major employers in Brooks City Base, and the Eagle Ford Shale cities of Floresville, Pleasanton, and Jourdanton. The Reserve offers 14 customizable, energy-efficient home designs ranging from 1,340 to 2,708 square feet with prices starting in the mid-$150,000’s. Brett Dietz, president of KB Home’s San Antonio division, says that “families who want an energy-efficient new home that feels like it is in the country but is actually only minutes from downtown San Antonio, The Reserve at Southton Ranch is the perfect choice.” He adds, “we’re expanding in response to the popularity of our prior phase at Southton Ranch by offering today’s homebuyers the chance to own a beautiful KB home at The Reserve at Southton Ranch.”
San Antonio has been enjoying record new home starts and home sales, but this success hasn’t reached south San Antonio—until now. Their development of Lago Vista off of Zarzamora Road made KB Home the first builder in five decades to build on the south side of the city. KB Home’s Villa Del Sol, Esperanza, and Vistas at Carmona Hills are also located on the south side. Braunig Lake, the San Antonio Mission Trails, the Mitchell Lake Audubon Center, Palo Alto College, and Texas A&M University-San Antonio are among the area offerings that KB Home believes will draw residents to these neighborhoods. It is hoped that KB Home’s residential development will spur economic investiture in south San Antonio.
