September Completion Date Set for Lennar-Led Home Builders Association of Greater Austin 2020 Benefit Home Supporting Central Texas Homeless Population

Home Builders Association of Greater Austin (HBA) is pleased to announce the imminent completion of the 2020 Benefit Home, led by Lennar under its luxury brand, Village Builders.

Representatives from the HBA, HomeAid Austin, Lennar, and valued trade partners will participate in a ribbon-cutting ceremony on October 7, 2020 at 10am to celebrate the completion of this noteworthy residence.

Proceeds from the sale of this home will be donated to the HBA, who in turn will donate a significant portion to HomeAid Austin, a non-profit organization dedicated to building new lives for Austin’s individuals and families experiencing homelessness through housing and community outreach.

While the COVID-19 pandemic has certainly impacted business operations across Central Texas, it has also had a detrimental impact on the region’s homeless population. These individuals are among the most vulnerable during normal times, but the current crisis has left them in an even more precarious situation, lacking critical resources and the most basic needs.

“This Covid-19 crisis has only exacerbated the needs of our neighbors in Austin experiencing homelessness,” said Charlie Coleman, Division President for Lennar Homes. “The generosity and contributions of Lennar’s valued trade partners is greatly appreciated.”

The annual Benefit Home project involves the construction of a new home built by a sponsoring builder/developer, with additional donations of construction management, materials, supplies, labor and monies of Home Builders Association members.

A significant number of vendors have already stepped up to be part of this worthy cause, including:

  • A Action Overhead
  • American Underground

Lennar’s Village Builder design will be based on the appealing Avondale floor plan. Spanning over 2,500 square feet, the home features four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a two-car garage. Highlights of this open, inviting layout include an expansive great room, covered patio, spacious kitchen and dining areas, and a stunning master suite.

The location of this year’s Benefit Home could not be more impressive. Steiner Ranch is an award-winning community located right along beautiful Lake Austin and Lake Travis in northwest Austin, offering ample family-friendly amenities, exceptional schools and acres of greenbelts and hiking and biking trails to explore Hill Country wildlife.

Giving back to the community is part of the DNA at Lennar, and the company is thrilled to join forces with the HBA and HomeAid Austin to support this year’s Benefit Home. Bringing businesses and resources together to help Austin’s homeless population is important year-round, and even more so during this challenging time presented by COVID-19.
