QuikTrip is planning to build a gas station and convenience store at the northwest corner of 183A Toll and Hero Way West in Leander.

Leander City Council gave final approval June 3 for the development that requires a zoning change.

The zoning would change to minor planned unit development with a general commercial base zoning from a planned unit development/transit-oriented development zoning. The first reading was approved May 20 in a 5-1 vote with Council Member Becki Ross in dissent.

Robert Costello, who represents QuikTrip, said May 20 that the project will look nearly identical to the QuikTrip at 183A Toll and US 183.

Planning and zoning commissioners approved the zoning case April 22 in a 4-3 vote. Commissioners John Cosgrove, Marshall Hines and Becki Ross opposed the change with concerns that the area should not be zoned as auto-oriented and should be “governed by urban form-based code," according to meeting minutes.
