SAN MARCOS - New apartment complexes are constantly being built around San Marcos, and Texas State University’s growth and demand for student housing fill hundreds of additional bedrooms each year.

There are currently eight multifamily housing projects under construction and 13 under consideration for future development. The projects include expansions to existing apartments and the construction of new housing complexes.

Matthew Lewis, director of planning and development services, said the occupancy rate of existing apartments in San Marcos is high.

Vickie Pustka, leasing manager for Copper Beech, a townhome community on Mill Street, said the complex has preleased 1,088 of 1,238 bedrooms, about 87 percent, for the upcoming semester.

The Vistas Apartments, a new student apartment complex located on North Fredericksburg St. slated to open fall 2013, has preleased about 479 of 532 bedrooms, or 90 percent of its units for the fall.

Lewis said a newly completed Comprehensive Master Plan will give San Marcos a clear direction in how growth should occur in the city.
