The business that's fueling the west Texas economy (oil and gas) is also the same thing that's making it harder to find housing.
Brian Lash, Target Logistics CEO said, "We operate the lodges all throughout the world, we have six thousand beds occupied throughout north America."
The Pecos Lodge location will add at least 200 more rooms to that, Target Logistics is a turnkey housing workforce housing business that specialized in creating living spaces for men and women working in the oil, gas, mining, or construction business.
"We build to meet the demands of the clients that have asked us to be in this area," said Lash
Pecos Mayor Venetta Seals has watcher her town's homes and hotel rooms completely fill up. She sees the development as a step in the right direction.
With what they are bringing in which is workforce lodging, it will help with some of the housing difficulties that we have been experiencing," said Seals.
Once the facility is complete, the residents will receive three full meals a day. They'll have an on-site fitness, basketball, volleyball and entertainment areas. But the housing isn't open to the public.
"We work with corporations they take a block of rooms for a certain period of time," said Lash
The facility is expected to be finished November 15. Mayor Seals is excited.
"It's just going to be a real blessing to have them become part of our community and be involved in our community activity," Seals.
The 200 rooms that will be open for phase one of the developments is already nearly booked. In phase two of the development, Target Logistics plans to build an additional 250 rooms. The start of phase 2 will depend on how fast space fills up and companies desire additional housing.
