Embrey Partners Breaks Ground on Dwell at Legacy in North San Antonio

A new Class A apartment development broke ground under the Embrey Partners, Ltd. umbrella. This was made possible after the developer received zoning approval to turn 8.28 acres of commercially-zoned land in the Legacy Shopping Center into an apartment community.

A new Class A apartment development broke ground under the Embrey Partners Ltd. umbrella. This was made possible after the developer received zoning approval to turn 8.28 acres of commercially zoned land in the Legacy Shopping Center into an apartment community.

Dwell at Legacy is located at 1810 E. Sonterra Blvd., within 326,455 square feet of retail space, with direct access to Lifetime Fitness, Best Buy, Staples, Main Event, Buffalo Wild Wings, Starbucks, Men’s Warehouse and a Saturday and Sunday farmers market. “But we also sit at the corner of Highway 281 and North Loop 1604, offering easy on-off access to freeways in all four directions,” said John Kirk, executive vice president of development for Embrey.

The project consists of three-story buildings, with an elevator, underground and surface parking, rentable private garages and detached carports. The units were designed with Generation Y in mind and will range in size from 550 square feet for one bedrooms to 1,200 square feet for two bedrooms; they’ll offer ultra-high-end amenities that will complement the convenience and choices of the urban environment built outside the city center. The amenities include an oversize porch at the clubhouse, infinity-edge pool with cabanas and a Bark Park for residents’ pets.

The architect for the development is Good Fulton & Farrell and the lender is Texas Capital Bank. The project is scheduled to open in late June 2015 and, besides developing and building Dwell at Legacy, Embrey Partners will also manage the property.
