Landmark Properties has begun construction on a 190-unit build-to-rent community located along Longmire Road in Conroe, according to a Feb. 9 news release.

In a nutshell

According to the release, the community, named The Everstead at Conroe, will feature:

  • 56 two-bedroom and 134 three-bedroom ranch homes and townhomes
  • A 2,817-square-foot clubhouse with a fitness center
  • A resort-style swimming pool
  • A dog park
  • A playground
  • Pickleball and bocce courts

Meanwhile, the homes will feature kitchens with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and large pantries; living spaces with hardwood-style floors and ceiling fans; and fully fenced-in backyards with private patios, according to the release.

Quote of note

“Demand for rental housing continues to grow as more and more residents either prefer renting or choose to stay in the rental market due to the increasing costs of homeownership,” said Wes Rogers, president and CEO of Landmark Properties, in a statement. “With numerous projects either under construction, under control, or in the [build-to-rent] pipeline, our fully integrated platform is well-positioned to quickly expand our single-family rental portfolio despite the current distress in capital markets. There is a tremendous opportunity to create much-needed rental housing.”

Stay tuned

The first units are expected to be delivered in early 2025, with the project anticipated to be completed in late 2025, according to the release.
