Encore Grand Crossing will open this fall at Western Center Drive and West Fernhurst.

A new high-end apartment complex will break ground in Katy this fall.

Encore Grand Crossing will be located at the northwest corner of West Fernhurst and Western Center Drive near Grand Parkway and I-10, said Charlie Keels, the president of Dallas-based Encore Multi-Family.

Encore bought the 6.87-acre site from Dallas-based Trammel Crow Commercial on May 15, said Tom Dosch, the principal of Dosch Marshall Real Estate, which represented the seller in the deal, in an email. Austin-based Oden Hughes will oversee construction.

Details regarding financing and representation were not disclosed since they are not yet finalized, Keels said.
The first units are expected to be completed by the third quarter of 2020, Encore Enterprises representatives said.

At 6,000 square feet, the four-story building with 240 units will include a game room, coffee bar and spa as well as business-oriented environments, such as a conference room and separate business center with individual workspaces, Keels said.

Other amenities in the community will include two dog parks, a 24-hour package system and an Uber lounge for resident pickups, he said.

Dallas-based JHP Architecture and Urban Design will oversee the building’s design. Details regarding financing and representation were not disclosed since they are not yet finalized, Keels said.
