The $715 million Northline project in Leander is “on schedule and making tremendous progress” despite COVID-19 economic effects, according to the project’s developer, Alex Tynberg.

Tynberg said the project has not lost a step since its March 4 groundbreaking. Utility and drainage work is underway at the site.

“There's been very little impact that coronavirus has had a Northline,” he said. “And I think one of the real benefits of this large project that we're doing is the fact that it does have a longer timeline.”

He said when the project begins the vertical phase of construction, the team hopes coronavirus issues will be behind them.

The mixed-use project spans 115 acres, and Tynberg said there are few issues with workers maintaining social distancing per county orders because of the large space. The project contractor, DeNucci Constructors LLC, has made sure its employees are following all safety protocols and sanitary requirements from the city, county and state while on site, Tynberg said.


Tynberg said there have been no budget issues, and he expects possible cost decreases when the next phase's budget is examined later in 2020.

Tenants may be announced as soon as late summer, Tynberg said. Retail tenants are still moving forward, and an office space remains on track.

“I'm very excited at who we're bringing on, and when we do it's gonna be some really exciting announcements,” Tynberg said.
