Wan Bridge, a Texas-based builder and operator of build-to-rent (BTR) communities, today hosted a grand opening celebration for the company’s first community in Denton. The Residences at Rayzor Ranch (The Residences), located at 2028 Ladera Lane, features three- and four-bedroom, two-story upscale townhomes for lease ranging from 1,600-1,800 square feet. Denton’s Mayor Hudspeth, the United Way Denton County, local businesses and realtors participated in the ribbon cutting and guests toured the community and experienced firsthand what future residents can enjoy.
“The Residences reflects our unique ability to deliver quality experiences, and our trademark hassle-free lifestyle, that complement each community we join,” said Ting Qiao, CEO of Wan Bridge. “Denton’s vibrant music scene, respected educational institutions and ability to attract residents initially drew us to the area, but the people in North Texas and partnerships solidified our decision. Our experience building across Texas enabled us to deliver on our vision of creating a BTR neighborhood in Denton that everyone can be proud to call home.”
Celebrating New Hassle-Free Living with a Grand Opening
In celebration of the new community, Wan Bridge invited the United Way of Denton County and presented them with a $1,000 donation to go towards the organization’s student school supply and backpack program. The check donation was provided by the Wan Bridge Foundation, the company’s charitable giving arm dedicated to extending support to community non-profits focused on children and educational causes.
Also joining in on the celebration and to commemorate what this new community means for Wan Bridge and North Texas, local Denton, visual artist, Drew Gaines was onsite to capture the event on canvas. Over the course of the event, Gaines painted the ribbon cutting moment to capture the celebration. The painting will be permanently displayed at the office of The Residences at Rayzor Ranch.
Redefining Residential Living in a Vibrant College Town
The Residences blend tradition with modern touches by featuring brick and stucco exteriors and incorporating desirable, modern amenities including high ceilings, oversized kitchen islands, walk-in closets and pantries. Spacious floor plans and open-concept designs set the stage for flexible living and are ideal for a broad range of lifestyles, while the grass-lined sidewalks, lush lawns and thoughtfully landscaped front yards connect residents and create a sense of community.
Benefits of living at The Residences extend far beyond the homes themselves, as residents will be treated to Wan Bridge’s signature five-star service and hassle-free living. Residents will experience the perks of live, work and play with a robust grocery store selection and several popular shops and restaurants within walking distance. Home to two major universities, the University of North Texas and Texas Woman’s University, Denton is a flourishing college town surrounded by rolling green hills with an array of amenities and wonderfully welcoming locals.
Denton also boasts an enjoyable small-town atmosphere with countless entertainment and shopping options in historic downtown and at places like the Campus Theatre. Denton Independent School District provides public education for students throughout the city, with multiple elementary and middle schools and four comprehensive high schools for residents with children, while those commuting in can easily access major interstates and thoroughfares for a simple commute to Dallas and Fort Worth.
Leading the BTR Movement in Texas
Wan Bridge continues to redefine residential living experiences in Texas through ambitious growth plans. Most recently, the company announced an expansion pipeline of more than 1,000 additional BTR units throughout the state of Texas in partnership with developer Land Tejas.
This follows plans Wan Bridge announced in 2021, which include the company aiming to break ground on 20 to 30 new BTR communities in the Houston, Dallas and Austin suburbs within the next 12 months and building 30,000 homes primarily in the suburbs of Texas’ major metropolitan areas over the next five years.
