The Village at Overton Park project is a 612-bed student housing community located on a 4.3-acre urban infill site in Lubbock, Texas. Approximately 3 feet of fill materials were imported to the site for on-grade surface drainage of a precast parking garage. The perimeter of the site, adjacent to the Texas Tech football stadium, is secured by a decorative, metal fence.

This 491,814 square foot development consists of two 4-story apartment buildings, one 2-story community center with fitness facilities, leasing center, community pool, and one 5-story, 578-space, precast parking garage with a first-floor maintenance facility. The project contains a total of 163 apartment units consisting of 20 two-bedroom and 143 four-bedroom units. All units have attached patios/balconies.

Construction is wood frame with cementitious siding and a combination of brick and stone veneer. The roofing consists of a 60-mil thermoplastic overlay roof system, with decorative canopies and trellises. All building slabs are post-tensioned concrete on grade with turned down foundations and stem walls at the exterior. The precast parking deck has a conventional slab on grade and is supported by shallow foundations and isolated footings. Interior finishes of the living units consist of painted drywall and ceilings and walls with a textured finish, and a mixture of carpet and faux wood flooring. The kitchen and bath areas include wood cabinetry and trim with solid surface countertops.


Easlan Capital of Atlanta and its affiliate Parkside Equities have been developing mixed use and multifamily properties throughout the southeast since 1982. It is with great pleasure that we have been successful in awarding the last three projects, consisting of 810 units to FaverGray. All three were completed on time and within budget. Parkside at the Beach was actually ahead of schedule and after a record lease-up, the property was sold within 36 months of construction start. I would therefore highly recommend them…as we look forward to a continuance of our relationship in the future.

Our relationship with FaverGray has been more than successful. FaverGray is unique in that they combine the expertise and sophistication of a larger firm with a level of service and attentiveness of a smaller firm. These characteristics are exactly what we need and the projects have been delivered on budget, on schedule.

The field team had deep experience and dedicated leadership.FaverGray was the selected general contractor on a recent student housing bidproject designed by our firm, Coursey Architects, in Gainesville, FL; the projectdelivery date was met for the fall of 2019, (to the Owner’s satisfaction and the newtenants’ great enjoyment), as was required by the Owner, due to the diligence ofthe FaverGray team from top to bottom. The field team had deep experience anddedicated leadership, and was well supported by the project management team, backoffice and company leadership team across the board. This was a complex 3-buildingproject, on 3 separate sites in the city, so it was really like managing 3 projects atonce; each site had its own challenges and opportunities, and FaverGray managedthese all very well.

The FaverGray team is a trusted partner with American Campus Communities. They bring great value as an active participant during initial design and predevelopment activities through pricing, and in the field during construction. Jim and Keith have assembled a core team of leaders with impressive depth and experience, and they demonstrate their commitment to service and integrity every day at every level. We look forward to a long and productive relationship with FaverGray.

Gary B. Coursey, Architects has been successfully producing multi-family projects for 50 years. We have worked alongside FaverGray for many years on many projects. We find them to be efficient, thorough and highly professional. Parkside at the Beach is one of our favorite projects we designed, and FaverGray built; luxurious design, built solid, and was sold for a large profit after a year of successful occupancy. We are pleased to work with them and will continue to refer them on projects we are producing.
