San Marcos (Hays Co.) – EMJ Construction and Humphreys & Partners Architects are about a third of the way through their construction schedule on a much anticipated luxury midrise student apartment complex near Texas State University.
Located at the southeast corner of North Edward Gary Street and East Hutchison Street, The Local Downtown broke ground in January and is scheduled to be complete toward the end of August 2017.
This is a six-story, $18 million apartment building with 6,000-square-feet of retail at street level. There is a two-level parking garage with one level being placed underground. There will be a second story community pool and outdoor lounge area at the center of the complex.
The project developer is John David Carson and the ownership limited liability company is San Marcos Student Housing LLC.
Other amenities will include a clubhouse lobby, fitness center, saunas, a study lounge, computer lab with printing services, bicycle storage, media room and game room. There will be 304 bedrooms distributed as studio units, one-, two- and four-bedroom units.
