According to the website of developer D'Agostino Companies, the land was acquired in 1998. Over the last 25 years, D'Agostino has completed numerous developments in the space, including offices, retail storefronts, restaurants and the 16-screen stadium-seat Grand Theater, which opened in 2005.
Principal Bryan D'Agostino said the long-awaited development will be complete in November with the opening of City Place Phase 2.
The 272-unit garden-style apartment, located at 1510 League Line Road, broke ground in October, according to the company's Dec. 13 news release. It will be City Place's second phase of the multifamily project after opening Reserve at City Place in 2020.
"We are very excited about the completion of this project," D'Agostino said in an email. "We have taken our time over the years to make sure the development met the needs of the community and would be an asset to the surrounding area for years into the future."
According to the release, the development will include a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans averaging 964 square feet. The unit interiors will feature 9-foot ceilings, wood-style flooring, stone countertops, tile backsplashes, custom 42-inch cabinets, undercabinet lighting, stainless steel appliances, and full-size washers and dryers.
Property amenities will feature a resort-style pool, pickleball courts, outdoor dining, and a clubhouse with a fitness center, social area and golf simulator. City Place residents will be zoned to Willis ISD schools.
D'Agostino also completed the fourth phase of the City Place project in January. The 100,000-square-foot CubeSmart-branded, climate-controlled self-storage facility opened Jan. 9 with 776 units.
According to the developer website, the remaining pad sites along I-45 and League Line Road will consist of medical, restaurant and retail-type businesses.
"We still own many properties in Montgomery County, and we are looking at additional opportunities on a daily basis," D'Agostino said.
