Envue is located in Bryan, Texas, a short drive north from Houston. Upon acquisition, the asset was rebranded and painted with a new color scheme. Exterior repairs included the replacement of all roofs and gutters on site as well as carpentry and paint, drainage improvements, landscaping and amenity enhancement. The existing tennis court was repurposed into a multiuse park with outdoor kitchen, dog park, bocce ball pit, horseshoe pit and great lawn. Additionally, the pool was resurfaced and an entertainment pergola was built.

The interior office renovation included removal of walls, raising of the ceiling, relocation of infrastructure, changing of floor elevation, fireplace removal, lighting installation, paint and flooring.

The Challenges

The interior office renovation called for an open mind and new ideas. With the close quarters and cramped layout of the previous administrative center, it was essential to gut the rooms and redraw the layout. Walls were knocked down, offices were moved and doorways were closed up or repurposed. The ceiling was raised in the leasing center to provide a spacious feel and the clubroom was relocated to overlook the rehabilitated pool amenity. In the end, a relaxing, wide open space spanning from edge wall to edge wall was created for the residents.
