Private developer Luis Gerlein will break ground this spring on Alamo Modern, seven single-family townhomes, on West Sunset Road near Alamo Heights. He plans to finish construction on the new community later this year, Alamo Modern will join a rising number of smaller residential developments that are answering a demand for more multi- and single-family homes inside Loop 410. This also helps to answer the call for more in-fill development along the Broadway corridor, as San Antonio and Alamo Heights officials hope to makeover Broadway into a prime commercial and residential destination from 410 into downtown. Many housing observers say Alamo Modern’s launch is a testament to the strength of similar in-fill multi- and single-family developments that have begun surging inside 410, thanks in part to such communities that have sprung up around Pearl and the Alamo Quarry Market.
Floor plans at Alamo Modern will range between 1,858 and 2,224 square feet, and are being marketed to homeowners seeking an urban lifestyle on a smaller scale. Housing observers say Alamo Modern will be marketed to the same type of urban dwellers that are looking at two other communities under construction — the 27-unit for-sale SOJO Crossing townhouse community, and the six-unit Parklid City Homes for-rent townhouse community. Both developments close are north of downtown.
Alamo Modern will fill up a tract that measures less than half an acre. It’s estimated that prices per unit at Alamo Modern will range between $449,000 and $525,000. CCH Construction will build the homes, and Lux Agency Broker Associate Lorie Campos will market the community.
Alamo Modern will also join a slate of single-family home communities that David Weekley Homes is developing inside Loop 410, including St. Mary’s Place off North St. Mary’s Street, Brackenridge Court near The DoSeum and Brackenridge Park, and one in the Tobin Hill area. Additionally, David Weekley Homes is developing The Gardens at Urban Crest off Harry Wurzbach just inside 410. These all are considered central living, high density custom homes.
