​​​​SAN MARCOS - Work has begun on a seven-story mixed-use building on the 200 block of Edward Gary St. in Downtown San Marcos.

The development, called The Local, will include retail on a two-story first floor and five floors of residential above that. In addition to 304 bedrooms — including a mix of studio, one-, two- and four-bedroom units.

The Local will feature 6,000 sf of retail, internal bike storage, an elevated pool deck as well as a clubhouse, fitness center, saunas and study lounge.

The Local continues a trend of growing residential density in and around Downtown San Marcos. Since 2012, the city has added 267 residential units downtown, an increase of almost 60 percent, according to city statistics.

Another developer is planning a 95-unit project, known as The Pointe, at 417 and 425 Comanche St.

A developer is also planning to build residential units at the former site of Tuttle Lumber at 228 S. Guadalupe St.

Project Developer John David Carson said he hopes to have The Local open by mid-2017.
