CRA’s B Austin featured in Green Builder Magazine Nov/Dec 2019 Issue & Recognized in the 2019 Hive 50

Two big announcements for our Award Winning B Austin Communities Project.

First, B Austin Communities is being recognized in the 2019 Hive 50.  See more in the article in Builder Magazine here with excerpts below:

Our 2019 Hive 50 list—spanning design, building technology, capital commitment, customer intelligence, and business and consumer strategy—highlights applied brilliance that reflects how the future now defines this community more so than the effect of all the past millennia put together. The honorees will be celebrated at the fourth-annual Hive conference, Dec. 4-5, in Austin, Texas.

Second, excited to see our B Austin Communities project grace the pages of Green Builder Magazine this month.  Link here to the complete issue.
