BB Living

Within the award-winning residential agrihood community of Harvest in Northlake and Argyle, Texas, Hillwood Communities, a Perot company, has announced a partnership with BB Living to develop a single-family rental (SFR) neighborhood. BB Living, a leader in the build-to-rent market, will build 191 three- to -four-bedroom homes in Harvest, ranging between 1,800 and 2,500 square feet.

"Single-family for-lease homes are in high demand," says Fred Balda, president of Hillwood Communities, the developer of Harvest. "This new product not only allows families who don't want homeownership a chance to live in a great community like Harvest, they are a perfect solution for buyers in transition and relocation buyers new to the area. We teamed with BB Living for this new venture because they build a first-class product and experience that feels like an extension of our master plan."

Residents will have access to Harvest’s existing amenities, award-winning lifestyle program, and BB Living’s on-site management. With over 5,000 homes spread across 10 markets, the BTR builder has applied its experience to design all new floor plans for Harvest. Construction has begun, and pre-leasing is starting this month.

"We've been doing this for a decade now and have learned a lot of lessons," says Branden Lombardi, president of BB Living. "Our residents want a sense of community, and Harvest is very intentional about delivering that. Renting was not always viewed as a good option, but we are changing that perception by delivering unique neighborhoods in great communities, resort-style amenities, superior locations, and a focus on the resident experience.”

Harvest’s tightknit community combines hometown nostalgia with future-focused planning so that residents of the agrihood enjoy a commercial farm with orchards and gardens, an 11-acre lake, four pools, playgrounds, parks, miles of walking trails, workout facilities, event venues, and more. The community’s award-winning lifestyle program plans hundreds of events, gatherings, and activities each year.
