Leander now has a 115-acre industrial development in the pipeline after months of deliberation and City Council’s final approval on March 21.

Titan Development, the company behind the newly approved development, has similar projects in Georgetown, Hutto and New Braunfels. Now, the company has added Leander to the list with plans for a property at the northeast corner of Hero Way and CR 270.

A closer look

The development will bring industrial, flex industrial and even more commercial uses to Leander, pushing the city’s opportunities for more job creation forward. According to city documents, the development will also “enhance economic growth and generate a diverse tax base” for the city.

While specific details such as potential tenants have not yet been announced, according to the documents, the project could include the following uses:
  • Manufacture, assembly or processing of materials
  • Warehouse and distribution
  • Research, testing and development laboratory
  • Data center
  • Wireless communication facilities
Sal Perdomo with Titan Development said in a previous email to the city “inappropriate uses such as vehicle sales, pawn shops and liquor stores” were excluded from the planned unit development to provide “better certainty on the development program.”

“It’s such an exciting time for Leander. [The Titan development] is going to be so good for our city for years and years to come,” Mayor Christine DeLisle said during the March 21 City Council meeting.

More details

Titan Development is responsible for projects such as Gateway35 and NorthPark35 in Georgetown as well as Innovation Business Park in Hutto.

Perdomo said during a Nov. 16 meeting the company spent two years to find its first project in Leander, and now with council’s approval, the project can move forward.

While a specific timeline is not yet available, DeLisle said the developers are hoping to build the project quickly.
