I'm sure that all depends on the zoning for that acreage. In some places in TX, only one unit per acre is allowed.

Its for a HoJo development. I was thinking a 55 units motel can be built on one acre.

If its a Multifamily project anywhere from 14 to 25. I managed a property about 2 years ago that was a 121 units on about 3 to 4 acres. It really will just depend on local regulations and of course the purpose of the project.

Gohan,
It depends on the zoning and also what it says in the general plan. You should also consider if you need to do dedications for street widening and if you have areas that are not buildable do to soil issues or ecological issues.

The land is zoned as C-1 General Commercial for some reason the city allowed to build a residential house awhile back ( ~60 years ago) but zoned as commercial uses.
