Round Rock annexes land, stage set for buildingRound Rock annexes land, stage set for buildinghttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=57452013-11-13T12:05:00Z2013-11-13T00:00:00Z

ROUND ROCK - The Round Rock City Council has approved the annexation of more than 412 acres of unincorporated land along University Blvd. in east Round Rock.

The council also established special zoning standards on the land and set up a development agreement to allow the construction of hundreds of homes with expected prices ranging from $200,000–$500,000.

Tentatively referred to as Avery North, Taylor Morrison is the company that would develop the property. The company would focus on building denser residential units similar to downtown areas in large cities.

If the development moves forward as planned, the city could see the first of more than 1,200 residential units go up for sale near the northeast corner of A.W. Grimes Blvd. and University Blvd. before the end of 2014.

The potential ripple effects of the Avery North community are being recognized by a variety of stakeholders, including the school district and neighboring developments.

Round Rock ISD has already purchased approximately 108 acres of land at the northeast intersection of A.W. Grimes Blvd. and Kiphen Rd. for the district’s sixth high school.
