As Austin expands, so does its surrounding neighborhoods. Developers are looking for open spaces they can turn into homes and businesses to keep up with the high demand. Recently, they’ve set their sights on a previously empty corner of Round Rock.
Near the intersection of County Road 110 and University Boulevard, homebuilders are beginning plans to construct 1200 single-family homes. In the same area, another company is petitioning to bring nearly 150 acres of duplexes, multifamily, and single-family homes. A majority of the Round Rock neighborhood is developed land or currently undergoing developments, so it’s no surprise that builders are looking to the northeast as the site of their new projects.
Residences aren’t the only project lined up for the area. Commercial spaces have also been zoned off for the 356-acre plot of land KB Home Lone Star Inc. is using for the massive subdivision. 11 acres along University Boulevard are zoned for retail, office, and other uses with a maximum building height of five stories. The other 345 acres will go to a variety of single-family homes that will appeal to a mix of homeowners.
Across from the KB Homes, a 190-acre plot of land has been zoned for Scott Felder Homes. The residential and commercial development will feature single-family homes, apartments, townhomes, duplexes, and some other commercial buildings that haven’t yet been specified.
University Boulevard will soon be a flurry of hammering, sawing, and other construction noises in order to have enough homes to fill the growing need to live in a suburb that makes it easy to commute to Austin.
