River Springs up in BeltonRiver Springs up in Beltonhttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=77652013-04-05T10:41:00Z2013-04-05T08:00:00Z

BELTON - Construction is set to begin on the $10.43 million River Springs at Barge Ranch apartment complex in north Belton.

The upscale, 232-unit community will be off SH 317 near the River Fair retail and entertainment area, said Mike Beevers, who represents developer Bill Barge of Barge Properties. The project was permitted March 26 and awaits loan closure.

Construction is expected in the next 60 days and should be completed in June 2014. The first residents could move in as soon as nine months after work starts.

The high-end community is expected to appeal to a broad range of residents including young professionals, college students, young couples, families and empty nesters, he said.

The complex will include six residential buildings of up to three floors, and will offer a pool, meeting room, an exercise facility and a walking trail. The second phase will incorporate an additional exercise room and a children’s splash pad, Beevers said.

Residential buildings will offer one-, two- or three-bedroom units. Each building will be from about 24,000 sf to nearly 40,000 sf, according to Belton permits.

The 16-acre property will be accessible from SH 317, but Barge Properties will build a road during the second phase that will provide an additional outlet to River Fair Blvd., said Erin Newcomer, Belton planning director.

BBL Builders of Dallas — which built the $11.25 million Encore at Marlandwood in 2012 and Pecan Pointe in 2007 — will construct the complex at 3301 N. Main St. in two phases.
