AUSTIN - With plans in the works for major projects in Bee Cave, Lakeway, Hudson Bend and Four Points, a wave of new construction along the RR 620 corridor during 2014 points to continued growth for the region in the coming year.
Below is a snippet of completed and upcoming projects in the Four Points area.
Last fall, Taylor Morrison broke ground on its final Steiner Ranch neighborhood — the 84-home The Grove at Steiner Ranch, Vice President Adib Khoury said.
Shopping center High Pointe Village is being offered for lease and purchase, said owner Nancy Bui of the planned 70,000- to 80,000-sf commercial development.
Four Points received two major medical facilities along RR 620 in 2014 — the Austin Diagnostic Clinic and the Austin Regional Clinic.
Embrey constructed 344 apartment homes at Escape at Four Points in 2014. Standard Pacific is completing The Preserve at Four Points’ 146 single-family homes.
Phase two of Trails at 620 is slated to include new dining, entertainment and a 35,000-sf child care facility — Children’s Learning Adventure — in 2015, adding to a Holiday Inn Express hotel now under construction in Phase 1.
Three new residential projects on RR 620 are zoned to Leander ISD and Vandegrift High School:
• Taylor Morrison’s Montebello, a 50-acre gated community slated to begin construction early this year, will offer single-family homes.
• A 25-acre tract along RR 620 at Buckner Rd. is being developed into residential neighborhood and retail center, Stokes Ranch. The project will include 30 single-family homes and an 8,000- to 10,000-sf neighborhood retail center.
• Land on RR 620 has been cleared for a 120-unit affordable housing complex, Windy Ridge Apartments, set to open this fall.
