Around 150 residents have moved into homes at Parkside on the River in Georgetown, where developers and builders continue to add new houses on the 1,500-acre subdivision.

Situated between the San Gabriel River and RM 2243—also called Leander Road—the master-planned community has a little over 2,500 single-family lots planned for the site.

Amy Payne, senior project manager for Blake Magee Co., said projects such as this one—which began in 2018—typically take about 15 years.

About 200 homes are already built with Coventry Homes, Highland Homes, M/I Homes, Perry Homes and Taylor Morrison working on the site.

While students in the area will be split between Leander ISD and Georgetown ISD, plans for a GISD elementary school are in the works. GISD confirmed the district owns land, but said there is no timeline to build a school.

Developers will put in a trail to connect to Garey Park, and commercial and multifamily tracts are planned along Leander Road.

“It’s also going to have a pretty large river park that’s dedicated to the public,” Payne said.
