SouthStar Communities honored again at Summit Awards

IMG_1557For the second year in a row, community developer SouthStar Communities won the prestigious Grand Developer Award and one of its Hill Country communities, Vintage Oaks, earned five honors at the annual Summit Awards. Vintage Oaks’ newest amenity, the Fitness Club, was honored with the award for Best Common Area-Facility.

The awards ceremony took place recently at the Omni at the Colonnade in San Antonio. The Summit Awards were introduced in 1985 by The Greater San Antonio Home Builders Association as a means of recognizing the “builder, remodeler, developer and associate members who have achieved excellence in the industry.”

“Being honored with the Grand Developer Award for the second consecutive year has great meaning for us,” said Thad Rutherford, President, SouthStar Communities. “We are always thrilled to be recognized for our land stewardship and place-making. We are also proud to have been honored for the Vintage Oaks Fitness Club. This highly coveted amenity was something the owners asked for, and we committed ourselves to creating this amenity that would further add to the value of the community—and to what was already the most fully realized amenity package in the Hill Country.”

Vintage Oaks’ 7,800-square-foot Fitness Club opened earlier this year, offering owners in the community a complete workout facility right on site. The Club features:

  • Cardio and weight equipment
  • Indoor and outdoor fitness areas
  • Personal training areas
  • An age-restricted lap and fitness pool
  • Saunas
  • An outdoor spa
  • A full calendar of group exercise classes including favorites such as yoga, water aerobics, and boot camps—over 90 classes per month
  • A personal trainer on staff

Vintage Oaks’ land and home buyers have made the 3,900-acre community the fastest-growing masterplan in the San Antonio MSA for five consecutive years. Vintage Oaks offers a variety of homes and land for sale, a desirable location on the Texas Wine Trail with great access to both Austin and San Antonio, and amenities including multiple pools, a lazy river, children’s playgrounds, five miles of meandering nature trails, tennis and basketball courts, sporting fields, and the stunning Tuscan clubhouse.

Also among the fastest growing communities in the San Antonio region is another SouthStar Community, Mission del Lago. Located on the Southside of San Antonio and offering a variety of new homes from nationally acclaimed homebuilder Lennar, the 800-acre Mission del Lago masterplan also features amenities including the 18-hole Mission del Lago Golf Course, the Gallardo Elementary School, two parks, a sparkling pool and clubhouse, and an ideal setting minutes from downtown and bordering the Mitchell Lake Wildlife Refuge and Audubon Center. The Mission del Lago pool & clubhouse won the Best Common Area-Facility at the Summit Awards in 2018.
