What’s that? An inquiring reader emailed: “Can you please tell me what that huge — by local standards — building is that is located to the west, sort of behind Buc-ee’s in Texas City? It looks too big for a hotel or multi-family residences.”
Answer: The building underway at 13330 Holland Road is an independent apartment community for active adults ages 55 and older called The Huntingdon at Lago Mar. The 148-unit development, meant for the independent living market, will feature such amenities as yoga and Pilates studios, a movie theater, outdoor pool and bocce ball court, among other recreational amenities, said Mark Musemeche, founder and president of M Group Cos., the developer.
