OUR COMMUNITIES

Discover the spirit of Areté

Thomas Ranch

Austin, Texas

Project / 01

Austin continues to draw a crowd to Texas. As the master developer of Thomas Ranch, a 2,200-acre mixed-use development winding along the shores of Lake Travis, Areté Collective is reimagining Hill Country living.

The project is envisioned to include up to 4,000 residential units spread across unique neighborhoods and phases. Civic spaces, village amenities, lifestyle programming, and open space trails create a vibrant haven for residents and guests.

The signature experience of Thomas Ranch will be the Areté community. Built along the cliffside and expansive hilltop areas, a world-class resort community will be designed to blend full-service turnkey residential living with luxe amenities reflective of the location and seasons.

The Areté community will comprise 425 units and an 18-hole championship golf course that is expected to be among Texas’s most highly ranked new courses.

Turtle Bay

North Shore, Oahu

Project / 02

A luxurious oceanfront club community along the famed beaches of Oahu’s North Shore, the Turtle Bay residences offer a rare opportunity to live among natural splendor and escape. This vibrant community is adjacent to the fully renovated Turtle Bay Resort. It provides members with curated experiences to live well, commune with nature, and unwind in one of the planet’s most spectacular locations.

Exquisitely crafted homes with direct beachfront access are carefully built into the terrain, blending seamlessly to create picturesque views of the surrounding ocean and cliffside mystique. Offerings range from single-family estates to high-end condos, each designed to celebrate the unique culture and location of the site.

A members-only beach club brings a lively center point to the community. The modern suite of amenities – including a signature Wellness Concierge program, an outdoor pool and deck, restaurant and bar, full-service spa and fitness center, surfboard storage, and kids’ club – incorporate the sea as a transformative part of the experience.
