ROUND ROCK - Round Rock is logging its second straight year of strong commercial development as shown by 29 new commercial building permits submitted to the city through the first half of the 2013-14 fiscal year.

The number of building permits is a prime indicator of economic health for a city.

The City of Round Rock approved 28 new commercial permits worth about $77 million during the first half of the fiscal year, which spanned October 2013 to March 2014.

Of the permits approved, a $13 million Bass Pro Shops was the most valuable commercial permit. “Bass Pro Shops furthers the city’s status as a retail destination,” said Ben White, vice president of economic development for the Round Rock Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development Partnership.

“Our pipeline for new projects is pretty full. We feel very good about the present and the future going forward,” White said.
