Default Beware: B Knightly Properties from Austin is redeveloping The Lonestar

B Knightly Properties in Austin is redeveloping it. It seemed like a really cool place to buy till I found that out. I bought one of their condos here in Austin - Townlake Village - and Mark Tolley, the owner/operator. [mod]consumer complaint[/mod]

well, there is the environmental issue with the land on top of the fact that Lone Star sits behind a slavage yard that recycles aluminum, metal, steel.

That is awesome that its going to be developed, think it would be a shame to make the place go to waste.

Thanks. I Moderator cut: orphaned appreciate the overall warning to be wary of developers and their public relations. I've seen this Lone Star project come storming in with press releases and non specific marketing images. And honestly, the statement that residences will be completed by this summer seems pretty lofty. I know sometimes a developer can come in, hire an architect to do a couple of renderings, hire a marketing company to throw out a few buzz words, and then turn around and sell the land to the next developer after raising the perception of its value.

I'm also aware that sometimes a project stalling or ending isn't always the result of shady practices, but the reality of large scale development. This is the Big Tex development's issue regarding their environmental cleanup. If lack of communication/follow through does carry into the occupancy phase, then you'd have reason to worry.

I hope none of this is the case here, and does not seem to be as they're actually inviting the public on site. It's inevitable that something will go here. Hopefully whatever it is is here to stay.
