St. John Properties x Rudick Construction Group: Westinghouse Crossing Underway

03, Jun, 2024

Rudick Construction Group is thrilled to announce the commencement of Westinghouse Crossing in Georgetown, TX. The project, developed and owned by St. John Properties, features four flex research and development (R&D) buildings. At full build out, the business community will offer approximately 170,000 square feet on an impressive 24-acre site.

Since 1971, St. John Properties has designed, developed, and managed spaces that fit every type of business. Their team anticipates and serves the needs of over 2,600 clients, including small, mid-sized, and large companies across 11 states. With a book of properties that spans from Pennsylvania to Nevada, Westinghouse Crossing is the first to break Texas soil.

Brooke Harlander, Regional Partner at St. John Properties, expressed the significance of this new build, stating, “This is our first project in Texas, so it is very special to us and an important milestone in our growth story. Georgetown specifically has been a top growth city for years, so we feel fortunate to have the opportunity to plant a flag in this community.”

Upon starting this venture, Harlander emphasized the importance of selecting the right project team who shares their attention to detail and complements the company’s commitment to quality. Unique to the development market, St. John Properties intends to hold the buildings for life, which means that all buildings are designed and constructed with longevity in mind.

To uphold these standards, Powers Brown Architecture, Pape Dawson Engineers, and Dunaway Partners tailored their design approach while also meeting the demands of the competitive Texas market. Furthermore, early engagement with Rudick Construction Group helped the team align on constructability and develop the cost model simultaneously with design.

“Having a GC like Rudick Construction Group that would get in the weeds with us, explain all the ‘whys’ and help educate us on the nuances of the local market was vital for our selection. Rudick went above and beyond from the very first pricing conversation.” – Harlander

With a team formed around shared values of respect and integrity, Westinghouse Crossing is set to be the first of many St. John Properties developments in Texas. In a market full of developers, Harlander’s leadership, and ability to move the needle towards sustainable designs, proves her ability to stand out. As a general contractor, it is rewarding to build projects in partnership with professionals that put quality first, always, for their tenants.

“I also found all members of the team that I interacted with to have the same customer service mentality that aligned with St. John Properties’ values, and everyone was responsive and went above and beyond to address our questions and needs.” – Harlander

The first phase of Westinghouse Crossing is scheduled to be completed in Spring of 2025. Click here for more information about leasing space at Westinghouse Crossing.
