Northline developers introduced their newest development partner Endeavor Real Estate Group during an April 18 Leander City Council briefing workshop.

Endeavor will be responsible for developing 17 acres of commercial retail along the frontage of 183A Toll within the Northline development. The company is behind widely known retail centers such as The Domain and Southpark Meadows in Austin.

Another detail

Charlie Northington with Endeavor said the goal is for the 17-acre project to have a grocery store anchored shopping center featuring restaurant and retail opportunities.

Endeavor is also responsible for building a multifamily portion within the Northline development, Northline founder and developer Alex Tynberg said.

The background

Envisioned as Leander's new downtown district, Northline will be a walkable hub with retail, office, health care, public space and residential offerings. Some of the development’s multifamily and townhome portions already have residents.

Horizontal construction—building infrastructures and groundwork—on the mixed-use center began in 2020, while vertical construction kicked off in 2022.

During the workshop, Tynberg also presented some proposed changes to the 2018 development agreement. A few of the proposals included:
  • Requesting additional time to meet the commercial square footage requirements
  • Adding acreage to the Endeavor retail portion
  • Transferring property tax reimbursements from Northline’s Phase 1 allocation to cover infrastructure-related costs that could affect the Endeavor development
Tyberg said in exchange for these changes, Northline would provide over 100,000 additional square feet of commercial space than initially outlined in the development agreement and take on maintenance responsibilities that would have otherwise been the city’s.

Tynberg said more projects are in the pipeline for Northline including medical offices and senior living opportunities to be developed by Ryan Companies US, Inc. and a hotel with a convention center.

While Council did not vote on anything during the workshop, a few members showed support of the proposed changes to the Northline development agreement. Officials said Tynberg and his team will continue to meet with city staff biweekly.
