New Braunfels is one of the fastest-growing cities in the nation, but if you're looking to live here, how do you know where to go? Today we’re spotlighting one of the hottest areas in town for those who are looking to buy a home in New Braunfels: the Northwest side.
Northwest New Braunfels is one of the most dynamic areas in the city, offering a combination of family-friendliness with new homes catering to the needs to today’s buyers and great convenience with a growing number of nearby amenities and easy access to Highway 35. This bustling area is perfect for those who commute yet still want a private setting for their home. In communities like The Crossings, most homes back up to open space and feature Hill Country views, making them the ideal choice for new-home buyers in New Braunfels.
The new HEB plus! that opened at I-35 and FM306 in Northwest New Braunfels last year brought new convenience—and hundreds of new jobs—to the area. The 120,000‑square‑foot store includes features such as: Curbside shopping pickup; a Primo Pick kitchen with live cooking demos; a River Gear department; a large selection of craft and import beers; an entertainment department with TVs and gaming systems; Texas Backyard’s outdoor living furniture and grills; and a gas station with car wash.
The arrival of the first H‑E‑B plus! is a boon for those who are looking to buy a home in New Braunfels, and it also attracted an array of other shops and restaurants to the center. MOD Pizza, Freebirds, and In-n-Out Burger are all open, and there is also a Camping World of San Antonio, a Malleable jewelry store, Twin Liquors, Amegy bank, a Digital Doc electronic repair shop, and a T-Mobile. On the other side of 306 are S&S Crossfit and a Wingate by Wyndham hotel.
Just across the highway is New Braunfels Town Center in Creekside, one of the most popular spots in the city. This is where you’ll find Target, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Hobby Lobby, Belk, and Best Buy, as well as a range of restaurants and Creekside Cinemas 14. Home Goods, Five Guys Burgers, and Burlington are all opening soon here.
Another strong benefit of the Northwest side of New Braunfels: the acclaimed schools of the Comal ISD that serve area students, including those in communities like The Crossings. Comal ISD is a Recognized school district and all campuses in the district are fully accredited by the Texas Education Agency (TEA). Most recently, the district was the recipient of the ComalFit award, as a Healthy School District.
