​​​PFLUGERVILLE - A new housing development planned off Weiss Lane is expected to accommodate more than 6,000 residents and is the latest addition to the rapidly evolving landscape of east Pflugerville. ​

After more than a decade of discussion and preparation, plans to develop the nearly 800-acre Carmel complex east of SH 130 are moving forward after the City of Pflugerville divided the property into two municipal utility districts.

Carmel is scheduled to include 2,317 homes, a community swimming pool and other recreational amenities.

Carmel developer John Lloyd said he has committed around $10 million to engineering and preliminary work and expects to break ground on the first 300 residential lots in the next few months with the goal of seeing rooftops by fall 2016.

East Pflugerville has seen a flurry of activity with the city purchasing more than 230 acres for an athletic complex, the approval of a subdivision on another 150 acres, the construction of Pflugerville's High School No. 4 and an approved Weiss Lane expansion project.​

“We’ve been trying to get the stars to align, and it’s just now come together. Having the school and park on either side [makes Carmel like] the creamy white filling in the Oreo,” said Lloyd.
