Barrington, IL (PRWEB) January 08, 2013
Stoneleigh Companies, LLC announces the acquisition of 41 acres of land planned for the construction of the 600 unit Waterford Springs Apartments located in north Houston adjacent to the Woodlands.
Rick Cavenaugh, President of Stoneleigh, stated “Waterford Springs will be our first development project in the Houston area since 2003 and will take advantage of the ongoing growth of the Woodlands market. Our enthusiasm for the project is buoyed with the excellent job growth forecast centered on the Exxon headquarters and other major corporate relocations to that area. We expect to break ground in the second quarter of 2013 on Phase I with 312 units in what will be one of the best quality multi-family projects in the area.”
James O’Kane, Chief Investment Officer, said “Our development team has done over eight projects in Houston in the past twenty years and Waterford Springs is an exciting new opportunity for the company. In keeping with our long term commitment to high quality apartments, through both acquisition and new construction, we believe that this project will set a new standard for excellence, design and sustainable living in the Woodlands market.”
Chic Hall, Senior Vice President of Finance, stated “the acceptance of the project from the institutional finance community has been positive with the rapid jobs expansion in the local community being one of the best economic stories in the country. The Waterford Springs location on Gosling Road takes advantage of a great location just outside the Woodlands that will provide excellent access to the new Grand Parkway expansion, Exxon world headquarters and all the retail benefits of the Woodlands master planned complex.”
