A newly extended portion of Scottsdale Drive will enhance access to existing and planned developments along 183A Toll, East New Hope Drive and East Whitestone Boulevard, once it opens in May.

Stretching roughly 0.75 miles, the extension will connect the existing Scottsdale Drive—which intersects 183A Toll and dead ends behind Toyota of Cedar Park—to New Hope Drive, said Chris Whitworth with Cordova Real Estate Ventures, the company behind the project.

After the extended Scottsdale Drive reaches New Hope Drive, it will change into Cottonwood Creek Trail, which then provides a connection to Whitestone Boulevard.

Diving in deeper

Cordova and real estate developer Riverside Resources purchased roughly 90 acres—which included the right of way for the Scottsdale Drive extension—at the intersection of 183A Toll and East New Hope Drive to make way for a multiphased development featuring a blend of commercial and industrial uses.

One of the projects planned for this 90-acre site is an industrial park called New Hope, which is under construction. The first phase of the New Hope development will span over 271,000 square feet and consist of three Class A industrial buildings.

The first round of tenants are expected to move into the buildings in July, Whitworth said.

Also planned for the property is WorldSprings, a spa offering a globally inspired outdoor mineral pool experience that promotes wellness and relaxation. Cedar Park City Council recently approved a special use permit for the company’s 8-acre site located directly along the extended portion of Scottsdale Drive.

WorldSprings will be a part of an entertainment- and restaurant-focused development called The District at New Hope, which will be located between Scottsdale Drive and 183A Toll frontage road, Whitworth said.

Notable quote

“The significance of the Scottsdale Drive extension goes beyond facilitating access—it’s a catalyst for further expansion,” Whitworth said. “The completed extension will serve not only the current industrial park but also future phases of industrial to the east and mixed-use commercial projects west of the roadway.”

Before the extension opens, Whitworth said final striping, utility extensions and filing paperwork with the city of Cedar Park still needs to be completed.
