A 21.5-acre development in Cedar Park will bring multifamily units, park space and commercial development to RM 1431.

Cedar Park City Council approved a zoning request Feb. 24 that allows for the mixed-use development called Shops at Vista Ridge. The development is at the southwest corner of RM 1431 and Vista Ridge Boulevard next to the existing Advance Auto Parts store.

The zoning changed 21.5 acres from general business zoning to planned development zoning with a mixed-use base district. The city’s future land use plan was also changed on a 5.46-acre section of the project from local office/retail/commercial to high-density residential.

The project has three areas including an 8-acre park area, a multifamily complex with about 360 units and a commercial development area with single and multi-story buildings, said city development services assistant director Andreina Dávila-Quintero at the Feb. 10 council meeting.

The park will be privately maintained with public access and amenities, said Michele Lynch, who represented the developer. The development will have structured parking for the multifamily and commercial areas.
