Besides the Abandoned Peanut Factory project, Big Red Dog announced the construction of its newest community in San Antonio. The engineering firm– which specializes in civil engineering, permitting and land-use consulting for real estate and natural resource development — has been expanding recently not only in the downtown area but also in the suburbs. It will provide engineering and entitlement services for an apartment project in the Northwest part of the city, close to the South Texas Medical Center.
“This project will be right across the street from VIA’s new rapid transit bus station, so we think it will be quite popular with students and medical professionals alike,” Chris Weigand, president of Big Red Dog, told the San Antonio Business Journal. “There are so many young professionals in that area who want to be close to work and live somewhere they can be proud of,” he added.
The apartment community will include 300 units, plus an amenity center, parking garage and park area. The cost is expected to total $30 million. Houston-based Clerkley Watkins Group is the architect, and completion is scheduled for the fall of 2014.
