Quarry Townhomes to Begin Sales

No-Hassle Ownership Hits Quarry Area

SAN ANTONIO, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 22, 2007 -- The Quarry area is about to add one more coveted element into its hot shopping, dining and entertainment formula: no-hassle home ownership.

Answering this call is an existing neighborhood property -- The Quarry Townhomes -- currently undergoing a unique, ground-up enhancement/conversion process to "make a good thing better" and offer townhome living to buyers in the Alamo and Lincoln Heights areas. The property is the first large-scale, luxury condominium conversion within the Alamo Heights School District.

With prices ranging from the $180s to mid $300s, The Quarry Townhomes are slated to begin sales February 10, and interest is already high in this 150-unit community on Treeline Park near the Quarry Market.

"We have been fielding calls since word got out about the sale of the property," says Sue Massari of Phyllis Browning & Associates, the property's sales representative. "San Antonio really is a small town when it comes to word of mouth, and it's obvious that people really want to buy and live here."

This week marks the start of sales activities according to Massari, with personal previews for realtors, existing residents wishing to convert their leases, and the early trendsetters that caught wind of the conversion weeks ago. The sales center officially opened February 15, and buyers can now call to arrange tours.

Spending What It Takes to Make a Good Thing Better

As part of the multi-million dollar enhancement, developer Redhills Quarry LP is taking the property from an already class-A rental status, into a for-sale address with two finish-out package levels.

The Platinum-level upgrade packages will include allowances for stainless appliances, granite countertops hardwood flooring and crown molding throughout. The residences already feature 1 and 2-car attached garages and the key benefits of a townhome: no upstairs or downstairs neighbors and a maintenance-free lifestyle.

Rather than build anew, and suffer the restraints of high construction costs, the partnership opted to search out options for buying and upgrading an existing, high-profile property. With location being one of the prime considerations (the 250 Treeline Park address is next to The Quarry Golf Club and walking distance to the areas many cafes, shops and services), the Quarry Townhomes was chosen.

"When you look at supply and demand around the city, there are really a very few options at a sensible price level for home buyers who want access to all that the Quarry area has to offer and the prestige of the Alamo Heights/Lincoln Heights neighborhoods," says John Randolph, a managing partner for Redhills Quarry LP.

"And, we didn't have to build the homes smaller or cut out the extras to make everything affordable. We're in the ideal price range, the perfect location within walking distance of the Quarry and our buyers are getting a great value for their investment."

Getting The Goods

With the opening of the sales center, buyers are now able to see each of the four floorplan options and finish-out packages first hand. Two furnished model homes are open for tours, and the staff can provide all answers concerning availability, financing, the homeowner association and pricing. Printed materials as well as a full-service web center are also available.

The sales center is open for calls and tours Monday - Friday, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Sundays from 1 - 6 p.m. The office telephone number is 210.832.9700 and the web center address is

Visitors can easily access the 250 Treeline Park address from East Basse to the south, or West Sunset Boulevard to the north. The property is between McCallister Freeway (Hwy. 281) and Broadway Street. An area map will be posted on the web center as well.

The Quarry Townhomes is represented by Phyllis Browning Company, and all agent inquires are welcome.
