Texas News Today

Castroville, Texas – – Editor’s Note: This story was published through a partnership between Caset and the San Antonio Business Journal.

A small town about 25 miles west of downtown San Antonio is about to undergo major changes as construction begins with the development of a master plan that is expected to cost more than $500 million.

Merritt Commercial Real Estate is developing 435 acres of Alsace Oak in the Castro Building north of Highway 90 and east of the city center. The first phase of development includes 233 new homes, utility systems and a parkway that connects to Highway 90. The parkway would eventually be joined by FM471 and Clebra Road.

Upon completion, the community will consist of 950 homes. More than 400,000 square feet of restaurant, retail and clinic space. There are also parks and miles of trails nearby. Residential facilities include a pool and a fitness center.

“What we’re trying to achieve is a design that respects the look and feel of Castroville,” said Merritt co-CEO Will Collins.


The first parcel will be ready by August 2022 and the first house will be available for sale in February or March 2023. According to Collins, the initial forecast was to build a community in 12 to 15 years, but demand for housing is high. In this field it can be completed in 7 years.

The project team includes Antonio Flamenco from Houston-based Insight Architecture as a master architect. CDA Architects is a commercial component design in Houston.
