HBA Announces New Benefit Home Project in Bryson

Posted by Viktoria Dolinaj on October 27, 2020

(Leander, TX – Oct. 26, 2020) — Chesmar Homes has broken ground on the Home Builders Association of Greater Austin’s (HBA) second Benefit Home this year, a home that is being built in the Johnson Development master-planned community of Bryson.

The home should take about five months to build, said Taylor Jackson, Chief Executive Officer of HBA.

After completing an earlier Benefit Home project this year, our generous members are making it possible for a second home, allowing us to raise even more money for charity.

– Taylor Jackson, Chief Executive Officer of HBA

Benefit Home projects are built mostly — if not entirely — from HBA members’ donations of construction management, materials, supplies, labor and monies.

We’re so grateful to Johnson Development for their generous donation and for Chesmar Homes serving as Builder Captain of the project. Johnson is one of the few developers to fully donate a homesite for the project.

– Taylor Jackson, Chief Executive Officer of HBA

A significant amount of the proceeds from the sale of the home are donated to designated charities, which for this project are the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and HomeAid Austin.

Homelessness in Austin is on the rise and HomeAid offers valuable resources to help people become self-sufficient. Johnson Development is in the business of creating communities where people can live, work and play. Supporting an organization like HomeAid and helping people find a home is a natural fit.

– Tommy Tucker, General Manager of Bryson

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is dedicated to curing leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, as well as improving the quality of life of patients and their families. It is a charity of choice for Chesmar Homes.

Chesmar Homes has a long history of giving back. We’ve partnered with many organizations in effort to better serve the community and are excited to once again participate in the Benefit Homes project and raise money for these two important organizations.

– Sean Chandler, Regional President for Chesmar Homes

Founded in 1953, the HBA serves the homebuilding industry by working with government, public, business and community organizations in seven counties — Bastrop, Burnet, Caldwell, Hays, Lee, Travis and Williamson.

The 530-acre Bryson community offers homes priced from the $260,000s to $500,000s. This year, it has been named “Master-Planned Community of the Year Under 600 Acres” at the Home Builders Association of Greater Austin’s MAX Awards, “Best Overall Community 300 to 599 Acres” at the Texas Association of Builder’s Texas Star Awards and “Master-Planned Community of the Year” at the Austin Business Journal’s annual Residential Real Estate Awards.
