One of the first steps was taken today by the city of Bryan to go forward with a multi million dollar construction project.
Traditions, the private golf club and residential community in Bryan, plans to build condos with an estimated value of $10 million. They plan to build 38 condos that will be 2 to 3 bedrooms.
"We have a lot of people coming from markets like Dallas and San Antonio where they are involved in life, and they may have grandkids in ballet or what have you. They really don't want to move to Traditions, but they are tired of fighting the rat race with the hotels," said Spencer Clements with Traditions.
Bryan is giving Traditions land to build the condos.
"A lot of people think that the city of Bryan owns Traditions. The city of Bryan does not own Traditions. It owns the land and all the development expenses that go in are put in by private funds by our company," said Clements.
The condos will cost from $200,000 to $300,000 each. Traditions has been getting several phone calls from people interested in buying a spot.
For Bryan, this development is part of a bigger masterplan. There's future development planned at Traditions which includes a hotel, single-family homes and restaurants in a growing area of the Brazos Valley.
