Williams-Meridian Aims Straight for the Eagle Ford Shale

Share Article

Williams-Meridian Companies announces several new development initiatives targeting projects that benefit communities within the Eagle Ford Shale.

The Texas based real estate consulting, investment and development firm Williams-Meridian Companies recently announced plans to pursue multiple developments in South Texas, with a particular emphasis on meeting the needs of communities impacted by the fast-growing Eagle Ford oil and gas shale play.

Over the past year, the firm has been pursuing new project opportunities throughout South Texas, including several new housing developments, apartment complexes supported by restaurants, and 2 to 4 story motels within the shale. The firm is also pursuing requests for build-to-suit warehouses from energy companies and other industrial users.

A spokesperson of the firm recently said, "The opportunity within the shale is still wide open. We are actively pursuing projects in areas previously overlooked or under-served. Our firm has found out that many developers are "gun-shy" about doing projects they can't seem to get a handle on, or are not willing to put forth the effort in, regardless of what the need within the shale is. Admittedly, there are development challenges such as lack of water, infrastructure and the inability to accurately quantify true, lasting demand for real estate projects within the area; but that is where firms like Williams-Meridian step in. Our company and our partners are firmly committed to real estate development in the shale, and we encourage partnerships with groups having a similar vision for the communities as we do."
