Williamson County is in for some drastic changes in the next several years with the addition of several new developments. What are these new Williamson County developments and where are they located? I have the details on everything you need to know!
Apple’s Second Campus in Northwest Austin
Apple announced plans for a second campus in Northwest Austin. The second campus is expected to bring significant economic growth to the North Austin suburbs all while enhancing the region’s tax base. While not much information is known at this time, we do know the new campus is going to be built on 133-acres of land less than a mile from the existing Austin campus near the Domain. Many are expecting the new location to be built on Robinson Ranch, located northwest of the intersection of Parmer and McNeil Drive. In total, it looks as if the $1 billion campus will add 5,000 new jobs to the region, with a possibility for up to 15,000.
Kalahari Resort and Convention Center
In just two years, Round Rock’s tourism landscape will drastically change with the opening of the Kalahari Resort and Convention Center. This new project, located on 351 acres off of Hwy 79 in Round Rock, will feature a hotel, water park, restaurants and the city’s largest convention center.
Georgetown’s Wolf Lakes Village
Nestled at the northwest corner of I-35 and SH 29, the Wolf Lakes Village mixed-use project will resemble an Italian village and include a host of offices, shops, civic space, a hotel, entertainment amenities and up to 2,500 residential units. Developers are expecting to break ground on this new development in 2019.
Cedar Park’s Bell Boulevard
Developers are working on some big changes to Bell Boulevard. The goal is to create a more walkable, mixed-use corridor with additional shops, parks and restaurants. As of right now, Bell Boulevard will go out to bid by the end of 2019 with a construction schedule of 18 to 24 months.
Transit-friendly development in Leander
Leander’s transit-oriented district (TOD), surrounding the MetroRail station on U.S. 183, north of Old 2243 West, is picking up some new businesses. Over the course of 2018, the area welcomed Austin Community College’s nearby San Gabriel campus and St. David’s Healthcare’s freestanding emergency center. Next, the TOD will look to add some restaurant, retail and class A office space.
Santa Rita Ranch
Santa Rita Ranch, nestled in Liberty Hill, is one of Austin’s largest master-planned communities of 2018. In total, the development now has 800 homes finished and occupied, or sold and under construction.
