New builder at Plum Creek in Kyle

Bigelow Homes enters market in second phase of Kyle's Plum Creek

Bigelow Homes said it would build homes in Plum Creek, the Kyle mixed-use development that is expanding into a second phase.

Chicago-based Bigelow said it would offer 10 floor plans starting this fall, ranging from 1,100 to 3,000 square feet.

The company already builds homes in Blanco River Village in San Marcos.

Plum Creek is built on the principles of New Urbanism, which include walkable neighborhoods with shops, schools and community amenities near homes.

"Creating points of interaction is a priority for Plum Creek," said Bigelow CEO Jamie Bigelow. "The presence of a neighborhood, places for people to enjoy friends and family, attracted us" to the development.

There are 1,500 homes in Plum Creek now. Austin Community College recently said it would buy 96 acres nearby for a future campus there.
