The Hero Way and Main Street planned unit development would include a one-story, 20,000-square-foot building and a two-story 27,000-square-foot building. The 8-acre development would be at the southwest corner of Hero Way and Main Street.
Leander City Council held a public hearing and first reading for the planned unit development with a local commercial base zoning district Jan. 7. Final reading and approval is scheduled for Jan. 21, according to the city.
Trac Bledsoe, who represented the developer, said that Austin Gastroenterology, a Central Texas physician group, wants to bring an endoscopy center and clinic to the site. He said there is a trend of doctors moving closer to their patients.
The group’s Leander location would occupy the one-story building, and the other building would have six to seven medical tenants. Bledsoe said construction is planned to begin in the middle of this year.
“That location like this is perfect because you’re right in the middle of a huge population growth area, and you’re adjacent to a hospital,” Bledsoe said.
