New Luxury Apartments to Rise Near JFC’s Birdsall Memorial Project

New Luxury Apartments to Rise Near JFC’s Birdsall Memorial Project - Jordan Foster Construction August 11, 2017

Congratulations to Jordan Foster Residential on the award of the contract to build City Place Memorial Park in Houston! The Residential Proposal Team is becoming very adept at successfully navigating the extensive paperwork required on HUD associated projects.

Located inside Loop 610, close to Houston’s Memorial Park, City Place will provide luxury multifamily housing in an urban infill location near the central downtown business district. The development is a market-rate luxury apartment complex, with 264 units divided between two buildings on non-contiguous sites, separated by a thoroughfare. There will be a cumulative total of 235,007 net rentable square feet.

But first, demolition of the existing, obsolete apartment complex and townhomes on the two adjacent city blocks must take place. The owner had acquired the properties in April 2013, and operated the complex until November 2015.

The two new City Place structures will be four stories of wood-framed construction over a two-level, cast-in-place concrete garage. The first building will host an amenity/leasing area on the ground floor level. Elevated swimming pools will be featured on the podium decks of both buildings. The exterior of the buildings will consist primarily of stucco and brick/cast stone.

The City Place Memorial Park client is Farb Homes, operating as 57 off Memorial Ventures, LLC for this project. The architect is Wallace Garcia Wilson of WGW Architects.

City Place Memorial Park was secured through a HUD GMP with Lump Sum Side Agreement contract. The projected start date is targeted for August 20th, with a project duration of 24 months.

Special thanks go out to the Estimating/Award Team of Brad Waters, Justin Morris, Corey Brunsvold, Sofia Cereceres, and Rachel Richardson for their hard work, especially in the preparation of all of the HUD paperwork.

The Project Team will include Regional Director Corey Brunsvold, Director of Operations Terry Peek, Senior Project Manager Jason Carter, Superintendent Lonnie Houston, Assistant Superintendent James Mallon, and Administrative Assistant Rachel Richardson.

Congratulations to everyone who had a hand in securing this great new project!
