Peter James, President & CEO of ASA Properties provided an update on the Veramendi Development. The masterplan, located between Highway 46 and River Road just a few miles from downtown New Braunfels, offers hundreds of acres for both commercial and residential development. The first phase of residential homes is nearly complete with several new residential phases selling to begin construction soon.
