Lofts is a "second phase" to the very successful Legends development in Nacogdoches, Texas. This 310 bed, 132 unit development opened on time and under budget in August 2013. Located across Pearl Street from Legends, Lofts was a conscious decision to market to students wanting a more "urban" place to live. The interior design came from the fact that its residents are "Lumberjacks" from the log section wall made from a tree located on the site, to the chainsaw blades embedded in the leasing office countertop to the exploded views of chainsaw parts used as art work. As part of this development, twelve acres to the west of the development was donated to the City of Nacogdoches as a park so they could extend their creekside hike and bike trail system.
