Chesmar Homes to break ground on Benefit home in Lago Mar

Chesmar Homes will be breaking ground on Nov. 5 in the Texas City community of Lago Mar as it begins construction of its seventh Greater Houston Builders Association Benefit Home. Land Tejas donated the homesite, which is their 18th lot donation to the Benefit Homes Project, a 40-year-old charity fundraiser of the GHBA.

Their team of vendors and suppliers have already begun committing donations of materials and services to construct the home. These donations will ensure that, when the house sells at market value, proceeds will go to two local charities, HomeAid Houston and Operation Finally Home. Since the fundraiser began 40 years ago, nearly 12 million dollars has been raised.

Vendors and suppliers who are committed include: Builders Post Tension, Crossville, DataSmart, Boan-NuTone, Houston Window Fashions, Templar Electric, Houston Hurricane, The Ark Cast Stone, Austin Windstorm Construction and Stewart Door Company.

“Our vendors and suppliers are one of the main reasons we can participate in this valuable fundraiser for the community,” said Scott Merovitch, Chesmar City President. “Their commitment to giving back to the community and to Chesmar reflects their huge hearts and uncompromising professionalism. We can’t thank each and every one enough for all they do for us and for those less fortunate.”

Chesmar will be breaking ground for the construction of its Hillcrest plan, a one-story design that features four bedrooms with a game room option; three baths and a two-car attached garaged and a covered patio.

An extended foyer leads to open casual dining, a family room, and an island kitchen with additional countertop dining. The third bedroom can serve as a second master. The study is convenient to the common area and the master suite.

LE SUEUR, Minn. (KEYC) — Tuesday marked the groundbreaking celebration for Le Sueur’s downtown renovation project.

The project will partially demolish the Valley Green Square Mall and redevelop that space into 47,900 square feet of retail space and 15,000 square feet of 14-second floor apartments.

In addition, the redevelopment will allow for the reopening of Main Street that was disrupted by the construction of the mall in 1975.

“So, our team is not unfamiliar to small downtown renovation projects. We’ve done a lot of work in Old Town Mankato and also in St. Peter on the [Highway] 169 Corridor, so we are really looking forward to entering the Le Sueur market and helping businesses thrive,” explained Cate DeBates, director of business development at Coldwell Banker Commercial Fisher Group.

The project was made possible through $856,689 in redevelopment grant funds through the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development.

Construction will be completed by Brennan Companies.
