The relocation of an affordable and mixed-income rental housing community in Boston’s Allston/Brighton neighborhood is proceeding as planned. General contractors and construction managers John Moriarty and Associates are constructing 22 buildings that will constitute the $100 million, 240-unit complex Charlesview Residences at Brighton Mills. The first tenants of the new complex are expected to take occupancy in phases starting in June 2013, with the final residents in place by the end of August, project manager John Viola says.

Located along 360-acres on the shores of North Lake, close to both Fort Worth and Dallas, Texas, Cypress Waters – a mixed-use residential, office, industrial and retail complex – is one of Billingsley Company’s most ambitious projects to date.

The commercial and residential real estate developer purchased 1,000 acres in total in 2003 and had to work with the surrounding communities to develop a plan that would benefit the new tenants without disrupting the life of the established neighborhoods in the area.

 By September 2013, downtown Orlando, Fla., will add a new luxury high-rise apartment structure to its skyline. Called SkyHouse Orlando, the tower is being constructed by the well-respected and highly experienced Batson-Cook Construction, which is about to complete SkyHouse Midtown in Atlanta.

The SkyHouse complex will be a 23-story building, with 320 high-end units constructed as one-, two- and three-bedroom layouts. The 369,500-square-foot building will boast units that are much larger than the average apartment, each featuring elegant floor-to-ceiling windows, granite kitchen and bathroom countertops and hardwood flooring.

For more than three years, the partially completed Residences at the Stoneleigh tower in uptown Dallas served as a visual reminder of the housing market bust. The first 10 floors of the 22-story building’s structure were the only ones completed when the building’s owners stopped work in 2008, the beginning of the recession.

Treat others as you would like to be treated, that is the rule upon which Gerald and Monte Enoch founded their business in 1987. Now 25 years later, with a younger generation of the Enoch family at the helm of the company, the rule still applies, whether they are dealing with customers, employees or distributors.

The last major addition to one of south Florida’s most exclusive communities is on track to open in April 2013.

The roof slab of the 24-story Bellini Williams Island condominium project in Aventura, Fla., was poured in November 2012 – almost exactly one year after foundation work on the building began. Recent work includes drying-in the building’s interior, and exterior work is anticipated soon. The 347,801-square-foot building is the last anticipated new development on Williams Island, a community referred to as “The Florida Riviera” for its natural beauty and access to high-class shopping and nightlife.

Andrew Beal and Michael Derkenne established a general contracting company in 2010, a time many of their peers were either going out of business or struggling to survive. “It was definitely not a great time in the marketplace to form a new company, and a lot of people thought we were crazy to be starting from scratch,” Beal says.
