A Florida first for luxury apartment builders from Texas.

Written by Neil Cote


Panama City Beach, Florida—a nice place to visit and reside.

But visitors be warned, especially if you happen to be college students. This is no longer Babylon on the beach. Not everyone here is on spring break.

The party's not necessarily over; it just better not get out of control. Ordinances enacted in 2015 are keeping a lid on the debauchery of the not-so-distant past with the local constabulary in full enforcement mode. This past spring, young people couldn't miss signs on the beach reading, "New law: No alcoholic drinks between 3/1/17-3/30/17."

Leading the Texas housing boom with modern multifamily housing developments.

Written by Matt Dodge


In the early 1900s, the discovery of a large oil reserve near Beaumont, Texas, marked the beginning of the Oil Age, spurring development and speculation across the Lone Star State and leading to an oil boom that would result in the U.S. surpassing Russia as the world's leading petroleum producer.

Today, Texas is in the grips of another boom. Home to five of the nation's top 10 fastest-growing cities, Texas population is up more than 1.8 million from 2010 figures and is projected to double by 2050 as people flock to the state citing more job opportunities, lower cost of living, cheaper land, lower taxes, and an excess of culturally relevant big cities to choose from.

Texas is adding an estimated 1,100 residents each day, and there are few places where this boom is more pronounced than in the IH-35 corridor that stretches between San Antonio and Austin. The 80-mile stretch is home to a number of burgeoning bedroom communities that boast some of the best public schools in the state.

David Starr's next Vantage Communities development to feed off growth at Brooks City Base.

Written by Katie Burke


Fast growth and strong employment hubs have long been at the top of Vantage Communities' development checklist, and that's exactly what it will have at the site of its next development at Brooks City Base.

Vantage, spearheaded by local real estate developer David Starr, has broken ground on the next of its 19 communities in pre or post development. Targeting fast-growing communities such as Converse, Schertz, Boerne and Shavano Park, Starr has long been successful in building early and selling when the market is hot.

And now, with the help of civil engineering firm Big Red Dog, he's bringing the strategy to Brooks.

The 288-unit development has just broken ground at 7938 City Base Landing on the eastern edge of the base along Goliad Road. Big Red Dog San Antonio President Chris Weigand said the apartments should start pre-leasing by August 2016, and that the rents will be market-rate once they come online. That number is currently about $1 to $1.10 per square foot.

Once upon a time in Brigadon Apartments

Written by Dorthy Winfield


You can tell just by how their eyes sparkle when he walks into the club room that the senior residents at Brigadoon Apartments adore Gregory Spruill. It is mid-morning and they are gathered in the elegant maroon-colored club room to play their favorite game. Loteria: Mexican Bingo.

A gentle giant of a man, Gregory greets each person with a cheery hello and asks if he can get them any coffee, while residents chat about hairdos, weather, and sports.

Before they get the game started, their breakfast tacos arrive, along with a banana for each person. The genial grey-haired gentleman at the end of the table hands a banana to the younger man across from him and says, "Be careful. Watch out for bones!" It's a well-worn joke, but they both laugh with gusto, just as they probably do every time they eat a banana.
