About Weaver Buildings

Weaver Buildings is a real estate development practice in downtown Austin, Texas. They develop housing with the community, for the community, for accessible and green futures.

Our strategy is based on this principle: it takes a team to make a building. We emphasize an integrated development process; that is, drawing with specialty consultants from the conversation’s origin. When working with contractors and craftsmen, we practice two-way team communication for a correct, timely and cost-efficient execution of the design. The endurance of team communication, with investors, clients, consultants, contractors, brokers, and appraisers from day 1 is the key to a thoughtful and seamless solution. We value laughter and empathy in communication for the expression of vivacious and positive environments.Weaver Buildings is a certified Women-owned Business Enterprise (WBE) with the City of Austin.
