Serving students of Texas State University, the 13-story Aspire is the tallest building in the area. It offers 754 beds and a multitude of amenities with 17,116 sf of ground-level retail with a Target Urban, a condensed version of the major retailer suitable for urban dense areas and near college campuses where the full-size store may not fit.

It is surrounded by the Texas State campus and is a walking distance from restaurants, nightlife activities, and San Marcos’ downtown square. A wealth of amenities await the students and the 5th floor amenity deck offers some of the best views overlooking the square and downtown areas. Aspire also hosts five levels of underground parking for both students and retail shoppers.

Combining luxury living with eco-friendly design, Aspire uses energy-efficient appliances and windows and drought-tolerant landscaping, as well as supporting local bike programs and on-site recycling.
