Casey DevelopmentCasey Development’s latest project serves up luxury amenities and a healthy lifestyle.

The Interstate 35 corridor in Texas is considered one of the busiest stretches of highway in the entire interstate system. And while part of that can be attributed to heavy truck traffic to and from Mexico, it can also be credited to tremendous growth in two major cities along the corridor: Austin and San Antonio.

It is those two markets, along with San Marcos, Texas, that Casey Development chooses to focus on, and it couldn’t have chosen better. San Antonio and Austin remain two of the fastest-growing cities in the United States, and the towns in between such as San Marcos continue to explode as well. The growth has led to outsized demand for all types of construction, including luxury apartment rentals, such as Casey Development’s latest project, Tacara at Steiner Ranch.

SoBroSoBRO takes a socially minded approach to developing housing projects in New York’s South Bronx neighborhood.

The 1970s were a difficult period for the Bronx. The New York City borough suffered from economic decline and high crime. Landowners took to burning their own properties to collect insurance money and more than 21 percent of residents fled the Bronx during this decade.

The A. Philip Randolph Houses, located on a block of 114th Street in Harlem in New York City, used to stand as a symbol of urban decay, neglect and budget shortfalls. Today, however, they stand as a symbol of what strong partnerships between public and private entities can accomplish with vision, hard work and determination.

Boston-based Trinity Financial, a developer with a reputation for transforming urban areas, in partnership with local community based development corporation West Harlem Group Assistance (WHGA), was chosen as the developer on a gut rehabilitation project that will ultimately transform 36 buildings into a modern public housing complex situated within a historic district.

The 1960s were an era of suburban growth. The promise of new economic centers led Santa Clara, Calif., to bulldoze its historic downtown – which had buildings dating back to the 1800s. But the urban renewal that leaders promised never materialized. The city has been without a true downtown for 50 years as developers have tried and failed to gain widespread support for their projects – until now.

SiliconSage Builders is underway with a 44-unit mixed-use condominium building that it says marks the first major project in downtown Santa Clara in 20 years. Sanjeev Acharya, owner and president of SiliconSage, says his company overcame local resistance because it took the time to speak with residents and incorporate their feedback into the final design. The project is now on pace to open in 2018.

“It took a lot of dealing with neighbors where you can win their heart and show them you are doing something that will benefit their community,” Acharya says. “We broke that barrier of mistrust.”

Many contractors have estimating, contracts and closeout departments, but David E. Harvey Builders Inc. operates with a strategy where project managers do it all for the client. “What that does is provide clients with a single point of contact,” Project Manager Russell Niemann says.

That person stays with the client from the conceptual stage of their project to the final closeout. “We have a lot of repeat clients who claim that’s important to them,” he says.

The company has brought that approach to Market Square Tower, a 42-story luxury apartment tower in downtown Houston. “It’s a great project,” Niemann says, noting that the building will feature 463 living units and many amenities for tenants.
