Alder at the Grove, a 276 unit multifamily complex with interior design by Britt Design Group, architecture by JHP, and construction by Andres Construction, is part of High Street Residential's sprawling master planned community, The Grove.

Alder at the Grove features artwork inspired by Austin’s lively music and art scene. The design team’s plan focused on vibrant accents and ground engagement points, fostering both extended interactions and quick perches. Custom modular seating, available in various shapes and sizes, flexes to meet the users' needs, whether for viewing unit floor plans on the interactive TV or as a casual work spot. The lobby lounge seating area features a custom rug that echoes the geometric trim work found throughout the interior, creating a cohesive and visually engaging design.

“The blending of geometric and fluid patterns is reminiscent of the juxtaposition between orthogonally designed buildings layered with street art that we see in downtown Austin,” says Laura Britt, Founding Principal, Britt Design Group.

Leased units range from 400 sf to 3,600 sf. Phase III of the master planned community is underway.
