AC HOME MORE THAN JUST BUILDINGS

In addition, today, AC HOME owns thousands of acres of land at various locations in several states across the country. “We're entrenched in Houston, but we also own property in Chicago, Dallas, parts of Florida, Atlanta,” Andrew Kottlowski, President of AC HOME says. “We're always purchasing property.” These company-owned parcels are in various stages of planning, zoning, and development, and ultimately could yield over 143,560,000 square feet of residential and/or commercial use.

At AC HOME, the focus has always been on land and its uses: analyzing it, acquiring it and knowing what and when to build. Today, a map of Texas reveals what this focus has produced. For over 12 years, the company has been a leader in the areas of single family, condominiums, as well as commercial development. AC HOME has taken a leadership role on many prominent real estate projects in Texas. Throughout its his-tory, the company has developed numerous projects for residential and commercial.

The future potential of AC HOME is evidenced by its pipeline for future development, which will allow us to continue to pursue a wide range of development opportunities throughout the region for years to come.

Kottlowski mentions two other niche markets that attract the company's focus: “We try to find these tracts of land that are probably ten to fifteen acres, where we put affordable homes,” he says. “We're working on a particular development, right now, where there is an abundance of older apartments on about ten acres of land. It's too small for the big, national public companies, but especially with Asian connections, these types of products do very well for us. For domestic buyers - those are usually first-time home buyers - we try to find an area that has a lot of apartments and the next step for a lot of those people living in those apartments is a starter home, which we provide. But we try to cast a very wide net because we do try to grab those international buyers, as well.”

AC HOME MORE THAN JUST BUILDINGS

“Another product that we like a lot is student housing,” Kottlowski continues. “It's something that is going to continue to grow throughout the United States. What we want is a product that the individual buyer can get. Most of the developments that I see around the U.S. are not condominiums;they are fullblown apartment buildings where you can't get a piece of the action. So, we have a project going on, right now, near the University of Houston, where they are condominiums and we've sold all the available units. That's something that nobody else in the area is

doing. Those are two niches that we have, that most other builders and developers are not looking at; and there's a market for them.”

Kottlowski says that in the next five years, he would like to see AC HOME expand more globally - especially in Asia. “We've really gotten to know the Chinese market very well, and we realize that they're not only thirsty for U.S. real estate, but also for real estate in Canada, Malaysia, South Korea, Thailand, and Taiwan, as well,” he states. “So, we are actively looking at those markets and how we can appease more Asian buyers by expanding globally. We’re already putting a lot of resources into that,right now.”

By finding and exploiting niche markets, as well as offering end-to-end real estate and construction services, AC HOME is certainly living up to Kottlowski's closing dictum: “We're trying to blaze a path, not follow a path,” he declares. With that kind of attitude, this is one home-building business that surely will continue to build more than just buildings.”
