BASTROP - Developers have broken ground at the Headwaters residential portion of the 311-acre River’s Bend at Pecan Park project along SH 71, with plans to have homes available as early as fall 2015.

“The Headwaters section is the initial section of our residential community and will include a number of carefully planned features that will set the tone for River’s Bend, including a neighborhood park, large lots and design features that will enhance the desired close community feel,” said Duke McDowell, the developer for the mixed-use project.

McDowell announced David Weekley Homes and Scott Felder Homes will be the builders for Headwaters’ 90 home sites.

The single-family residences will include a minimum of 75 percent masonry, all rear yards will be fenced and front yard will include irrigation systems.

The residential portion of the Pecan Park project is comprised of over 200 acres that have been conceptually designed into seven sections with approximately 530 lots. Headwaters is the first of the residential sections to break ground.

The Scott Felder homes at Headwaters will include one- and two-story plans designs ranging from 1,500 sf to 2,800 sf.

David Weekley Homes will include 65-foot home sites with several one-story floor plans with prices expected to range from the low $200,000 and upwards.

The commercial portion of the development, which includes 80 acres, fronts the south side of Texas 71, and is in the northeast corner of the development.

Headwaters’ current design includes a large greenbelt located along a three-quarter mile stretch on the Colorado River, four acres designated for a future community center, and hike and bike trails throughout the neighborhood that will connect to community parks and link to roadways leading to the city’s historic downtown.
