Gilbane Building Company Celebrates Topping-Off at Barryknoll Project
HOUSTON, TX Gilbane Building Company celebrates a major milestone at the site of the Barryknoll multi-family apartment complex project in Houston, Texas. The topping off ceremony was attended by representatives from MetroNational, Slate Real Estate Partners, and by Gilbane employees and several key contractors. The project team was treated to a luncheon to celebrate the milestone and even had a mariachi band provide entertainment as part of the celebration.
Gilbane is providing construction management at-risk services for the construction of MetroNational's new eight story, 670,000-square-foot multi-family luxury apartment complex. This facility will offer 333 luxury apartment units in one to three bedroom layouts, 570 parking spaces, an eighth floor amenity deck with a pool, bar facilities, cabanas, catering kitchen, sitting areas and a dog park. The entry level will include luxury common space, a fitness center, VIP parking spaces, bicycle maintenance and storage, the leasing center, walk up apartments, and a landscaped interior courtyard. The complex is located in the highly desirable Memorial City area of Houston, adjacent to the Memorial City Mall and numerous restaurants and retail establishments.
"Memorial City is continually adding restaurants, retail stores, and other amenities to better enhance the surrounding community. The Barryknoll project will allow new residents to experience all of Memorial City's great amenities in a walkable urban environment," said Jason Johnson, President of MetroNational.
"Slate is pleased to partner with both Gilbane and MetroNational on this exciting addition to the Memorial City Campus," said Ben Pisklak, Principal at Slate Real Estate Partners.
The project is set to begin leasing in November 2018 and be fully completed in August 2019.
