We Are Texoma: More jobs calls for more housing

HENRIETTA, TX (KAUZ) -

An apartment complex will soon stand in Henrietta
The 48 unit complex will offer market rate apartments as well as units for low to moderate income families.

"We've been creating a lot of jobs in the area. We have a travel center that we've talked about previously that's going across the street that's creating about 30 jobs. We've got a brick plant that had their grand opening that created another 45 jobs and to be honest we don't have that many people in Henrietta looking for jobs. So they're going to need to come here from somewhere else and we need a place for them to live," Economic development director Rick Langford said. 

It's going to be called the Abbington Vista Apartments.

"They'll be located actually about fifteen minutes from the Wichita Falls industrial complex which is located very near the Clay Co. line," Langford said. 

The property will be 300 feet away from the access road of U.S. 287 and State Highway 148.

"We anticipate construction to take about a year," Langford said.

While there have been some delays with inclement weather, Langford said construction will begin.

 "It's going to benefit the community because we did not participate financially in the project. They've asked for no tax abatements, they've asked for no assistance from our sales tax or economic development department. They're putting in their own infrastructure," Langford said.

 That infrastructure of water and sewer, Langford said, can be a selling point for people looking to expand in the area.

"We'll be able to access those utilities in future developments at their expense," Langford said. 

The apartments will be three stories tall and will offer layouts up to four bedroom units.
The construction is being paid for by ReaVentures Group, LLC,and a Texas investor.
