If you missed it, announced back in May, The Village at Frieden and The Artisan, a New Luxury Four Star Destination Resort, in Fredericksburg, is on track to break ground this year.

"Fredericksburg has always been one of the most special destinations in the State of Texas. Its rich history, the growth of Central Texas, the explosion of the wine country, and attraction to the beauty of the Texas Hill Country have all combined to make it the perfect place to build a world-class destination." - Chris Wilde, Vice President of Fredericksburg Development, Inc.

Long known for being Texas' own wine country, the area "attracts over five million visitors per year who are drawn to the area by the bucolic scenery, quaint small towns and dozens of vineyards and wineries."

And it won't be just for vacationers, in fact the custom home community has sold roughly half its 83 phase one homesites.
