Houston Team Sets Sights Beyond the Loop

March 28, 2016 by Bob Brown

As the Houston apartment market continues to cool, BIG RED DOG has focused on opportunities outside the loop and in suburban markets. Most recently, BIG RED DOG’s Houston office has had the opportunity to collaborate with the 210 Development team out of San Antonio to bring the Brazos Crossing and Oyster Creek at Oyster Landing apartment projects to market. Both projects, located in Richwood, Texas just off Highway 288, will add 510 units to the market as well as provide an upscale living option for the workforce in the area. BRD has worked with the 210 Development team primarily in the San Antonio market, but are excited to collaborate on a project near Houston.

Brazos Crossing 1602256289

Oyster Creek at Oyster Landing consists of 200 garden style apartment units on 9.5 acres. Brazos Crossing consists of 310 garden style apartment units on 17 acres. The project design team for both developments includes B&A Architects (Architect), Mark V. Padilla (Landscape Architect), and BIG RED DOG Engineering as the civil engineer. BIG RED DOG is providing Project Due Diligence, Civil Engineering Design, Regulatory Permitting, and Construction Administration. Construction is in full swing as Cadence McShane is leading the effort on both projects. Completion is slated in Q4 2016.

If you have any questions about these projects, please feel free to contact our Houston team at 832.730.1901.
