La Cima Set for Construction in Summer 2018


The La Cima development, a premier residential community in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, is currently wrapping up design and making plans for summer construction. The 2,441-acre neighborhood is located just west of San Marcos, Texas, at the intersection of Wonderworld Drive and Old Ranch Road 12 and boasts “…an oasis of Hill Country living with over 800 acres of open space and parkland.” Over 13 miles of trails have been built into the community’s landscape with convenient access to regional trails just outside of the development’s borders. La Cima features community gardens, recreational fields, and a 45-acre Central Park area where residents can come together for gatherings, events, and open play. The development team envisions that this space will also be used for future farmer’s markets, birthday parties, and neighborhood get-togethers – with the overarching goal of bringing nature into the daily lives of residents and supporting La Cima's values of home, heart, and Hill Country. La Cima expects approximately 2,200 single-family homes to line its streets, attracting residents with various lot sizes, a vast adjoining Habitat Conservation Preserve, and an unparalleled amount of open green space.

Nhasala Gains Friends and Artistic Momentum from Urban Sketchers Group


When Nhasala Manandhar moved to Austin from Dallas in 2016, she sought out a way to learn about the city while simultaneously pursuing her passion for art. What she found was the Urban Sketchers group of Austin – a self-proclaimed local community that meets to sketch and promote the (larger) Urban Sketchers mission and manifesto.

Since joining the group two years ago, Nhasala has produced a number of sketches that give life to the iconic scenes of Texas’ capital city. “I have gotten to know Austin and a group of people who enjoy sketching just as much as I do, “ she said.
