From the Houstonian:
The construction of the Bearkat Village apartments is still underway and expected to be completed for the fall semester.
The new apartment buildings, named Bearkat Village I and Bearkat Village II, will be located at the intersection of Montgomery Road and Bowers Boulevard across from Bowers Stadium.
John McCroskey, assistant director of Physical Plant, said the project is on schedule and is now 15 percent complete. One of the problems that arose during construction was the discovery of an unusual soil condition at the site of the future apartments. McCroskey said the soil had to be replaced with a more choice soil, but the switch did not affect the timetable.
