THE GOODNIGHT

STORY

The 700-acre Goodnight Ranch has been in the Goodnight family for five decades, used for ranching, agriculture and dairy farming. Proud of their roots and their town, the Goodnight Family has now partnered with Benchmark Development to pioneer a new addition to Austin that pays homage to what makes the area so compellingly unique and an amazing place to live. A community founded on the principles of Southern hospitality, new urbanism and affordable options to live, work and play.

WHAT IS

NEW URBANISM?

New Urbanism is an approach to land planning that reduces traffic and eliminates sprawl. Not unlike the strollable streets of Europe, a new urbanism development allows and encourages residents to walk to services such as shops, businesses, schools and parks and encourages neighborly relations and connections.

Built on this philosophy, Goodnight’s master-plan accommodates residential and commercial property as well as parkland and open space. The community will offer a range of diverse housing types, walkable sidewalks and wide bike lanes. Narrow streets will keep traffic slower and encourage pedestrian-friendly, tree-lined streets.
