Zeal for Life/Acadian building 237 BTR units in Sherman

Zeal for Living Breaks into N. Texas BTR Market

Zeal for Living is planning a 237-unit build-to-rent community in Sherman, Texas. The developer is working with construction company Acadian Group to build the project which sits on 25 acres. The community marks Zeal’s first project in Texas.

The project is to be constructed as a market rate Wellness Living rental home community consisting of a mix of single‐family homes and townhomes with attached garages. Amenities include a club room with community gathering space, a covered outdoor community dining room, multiple fitness areas including separate strength and group fitness areas, a yoga lawn, and a swimming pool with wet deck. A community garden area and a shared community tool shed are centerpieces. 

Zeal’s Jim Dobbie stated, “The Zeal and Acadian teams have been working well together on pre-construction to create this new type of Wellness Living residential concept. Acadian helped us engineer the homes to firmly deliver on our brand promise by honoring our Pillars of Wellness. Dwell, Connect, Move, and Nourish.”
