Nathan Carlisle Homes

When Chris Hartley was hosting a recent get-together at the site of what will be an age-restricted housing community in north Texas, a young woman sounded ready to flash-forward the calendar a couple of decades. “She was saying ‘I can’t wait until we’re old enough to live here,’” says Hartley, who was recently promoted to […]

Panel Specialists Inc.

It’s the cornerstone of Shell Global’s Deep Water strategy, anticipated to be sucking 175,000 barrels of crude daily from beneath the Gulf of Mexico, by decade’s end. Built in South Korea and having arrived in Ingleside, Texas, last year for final construction, the four-column Appomattox platform will be 16 stories high and two football fields […]

EHRA

On a Friday or Saturday night, the boardwalk buzzes with a town-fair vibe, as families bustle about shops and restaurants and the Caribbean-tinged vistas of the nearby docks. Less than a quarter-mile away, hundreds gather for a concert at an outdoor amphitheater, where the next day’s plans—a trip to the water park, a day of […]

Moore Erection

The steel is all but covered up now, except for a few stairway rails and partially exposed beams. But it’s there, sturdy as your body’s bones, buttressing the brick and wood that give San Antonio’s Cornerstone Christian School its distinctly neoclassical form. Opened this past fall, the grades 2-12 school looks both lost in time […]

AQUILA Commercial

As company monikers go, “the eagle that carried Zeus’ thunderbolts” is pretty tough to top—particularly so when the title in question is cast in all uppercase letters. However, the firm’s management says the name AQUILA has less to do with Greek mythology, and more to do with eagles’ keen eyes. “We’ve always prided ourselves on […]

Norbert Mueller – Kroger Co.

The flood waters having long since receded, life was pretty much back to normal on the Texas Gulf Coast by mid-autumn. The Astros had even given the good folks of Houston a morale boost, finally winning it all, and among those cheering them on every night of that memorable World Series was Norbert Mueller. But […]

Ryan Swingruber – Stoneleigh Companies LLC

Uptown has often been classified as Dallas, Texas’ most walkable neighborhood. Boutiques, bistros, biking, vintage shopping—all are accessible in an afternoon’s stroll. It’s an eclectic community that Stoneleigh Companies had its eyes on, so much so that in 2013, the Barrington, Illinois-based developer with Texas connections, made Uptown the location of what it’s calling its […]

Dausin Electric

When throngs of Texans show up at the local high school football field on hot summer evenings, few think about who rigged up the bright “Friday night lights” that shine down on the players as they dart toward the end zones. If that particular stadium is situated in the rapidly expanding city of San Antonio, […]

Bell Mechanical Services

Being in the right place at the right time will benefit any business, and the folks at Bell Mechanical Services can count the blessings they have reaped ever since expanding into the Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington area in 2008, after the success of their first operation in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Once the Great Recession receded, this part […]

Vantage Communities

Panama City Beach, Florida—a nice place to visit and reside. But visitors be warned, especially if you happen to be college students. This is no longer Babylon on the beach. Not everyone here is on spring break. The party’s not necessarily over; it just better not get out of control. Ordinances enacted in 2015 are […]
