Ardent Residential flexes multifamily muscle with new projects in divergent locales

Ardent Residential LP has built numerous apartments in Austin with a distinctly modern vibe. The local company has developed several larger complexes in partnerships with national firms, but also has created its own portfolio of chic rentals in areas coveted by young professionals — South Lamar Boulevard and Burnet Road, for example.
