FLORESVILLE -- From just about any direction, those who enter Floresville are likely to see something under construction. The city continues to experience a construction boom, thanks to its strategic location between San Antonio to the north and the Eagle Ford shale play to the south.

On the front line of all the activity is Cyndi Nichols of Floresville’s permits and code enforcement office. Before anything is built in the city limits, the paperwork passes through her hands.

The city’s apparent housing shortage soon will have some relief. In addition to the resumption of single-family home construction on various lots throughout Floresville, a 15-unit manufactured-home park is coming. Nichols said Oscar Garcia will own all the units, which he will rent to tenants.

Those desiring a different type of rental housing could opt for one of 75 units in an apartment complex being built at the corner of Paloma Drive and U.S. 181 Business. Nichols said the complex will include three-story buildings with brick facades, a clubhouse, and a pool. Rental prices will be “market rate,” she said.

Just east of the complex on Paloma Drive, construction continues on new offices for the Texas Department of Health and Human Services. Nichols said this building will replace the current office building on U.S. 181 north of Standish Street (S.H. 97 East).

With regard to U.S. 181, that is where ongoing building construction is most apparent. Just north of the highway’s intersection with Hospital Boulevard (S.H. 97 West), a newly constructed, 40-room Super 8 motel is now open. Another lodging facility, a three-story, 100-room Holiday Inn Express hotel, is being built near the intersection of U.S. 181 and Tiger Lane near the H-E-B shopping center.

In addition to more places to sleep, residents and visitors to Floresville soon will have more places to shop. Near the intersection of U.S. 181 and C.R. 330, construction continues on a McCoy’s Building Supply store. According to a company press release, the store -- set to open in July -- will feature 18,000 square feet of retail space and a 22,000-square-foot drive-through lumberyard.

McCoy’s is located across U.S. 181 from a bustling Walmart supercenter, which soon will be joined by a three-unit strip mall known as Tiger Place. Nichols said that chain stores Western Beverage, Rue 21, and Hibbett Sports are set to establish locations there.

For those wishing to do something with their money besides spend it, the Randolph-Brooks Federal Credit Union branch on U.S. 181 is expanding. Construction of a new building -- directly behind its current branch -- is under way.
