Katy, TX — Atlanta-headquartered ARA, the largest privately held, full-service investment advisoryfirm in the nation focusing exclusively on the multihousing industry, announces the sale of 7.23 acres on Katy Gap Road in Katy, TX and over 800 acres in Texas City, TX.
ARA’s Houston-based land team made up of Principals, Tim Dosch and David Marshall, Transaction Manager, Clark Dalton, and, Transaction Manager, Tom Dosch, represented an undisclosed seller in the Texas City which sold to an undisclosed international buyer. The ARA team also represented the buyer, Houston-based PinPoint Commercial, a full-service national real estate development partnership focusing on industrial, medical, retail and land assets,in the purchase of the Katy Gap Road transaction.
The ARA Land Team assisted Pinpoint Commercial in finding an ideal location for an assisted living and memory care facility by scouring the Katy market for sites. “Out of the 20 sites we found for PinPoint in Katy, the Katy Gap Road site provided everything PinPoint needed for future development,” says Clark Dalton. “Katy continues to be one of the fasting growing submarkets in Houston and the demographics lend themselves well for seniors housing development,” noted David Marshall.
Located at the intersection of Katy Gap Road and Roesner Road, PinPoint Commercial intends to develop a two story, 104-bed assisted living and memory care community called, Legacy at Falcon Point, on the Katy site. “This project is the result of a two year process,” said Charles Turner, Principal with PinPoint Commercial. “We studied over 300 submarkets in every state in the southeastern US. After months of exhaustive travel and extensive research, we believe that the Katy area is one of the most underserved markets that we have found to date. We can’t wait to get started.”
Legacy at Falcon Point is strategically located less than one mile from Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital and St. Luke’s Hospital. Below is a rendering for the building, scheduled to open in 2014.
