A Houston-based developer is bringing a new apartment complex to the area.
Dakota Enterprises, Inc. has begun work on a roughly 145,000-square foot multifamily development at 5310 Milwee St. in Oak Forest. Coined the Milwee Apartments, the development broke ground March 15.
Dakota Enterprises is not only the developer, but will be serving as the general contractor as well, and worked with Iberia Bank to finance the project. The property will include amenities such as a gym, clubhouse and a grill house. The Milwee Apartments will consist of one-, two- and three-bedroom units.
Spokesperson Kara Willis said rent prices for the complex will begin at $900 per month for a one-bedroom, and will have an average rent of $1,150 per month. She also said Dakota anticipates beginning to lease the 170-unit property in the spring of 2020, with full delivery planned for the second half of 2020.
