Cheatham Flats will house 234 beds in a mixed-use, urban development at 401 South Guadalupe St.

The complex will have 187,000 sf of housing and parking plus 5,000 sf of retail space for a coffee bar and restaurants.

About a mile from Texas State University, the $22 million project will consist of “volumetric boxes” to be assembled on site like a stack of Legos.

Made with American steel, the 11-feet tall by 36-feet long units will be fully furnished, then wrapped in a weather-resistant casing and shipped to San Marcos.

Sabot Development says manufacturing the units off site will allow them to streamline production, reduce energy costs by 15 percent and better manage quality.​
