When Heiser Development broke ground this month on Abacus Southside, a 140-unit apartment project in South Austin, it marked the latest project for a family business with a nearly century-old lineage in real estate.
These days, the company is run by Robert Harris Heiser Jr. and his son Bradfield Walling Heiser, a sixth-generation Austinite.

Currently, the firm is developing and operating assets in Austin, Dallas and San Antonio.
