A 120-unit apartment complex, Windy Ridge Apartment Homes, is being developed on an 11.92-acre tract at 10910 N. RR 620, Austin, said Adrian Iglesias, president of Generation Housing Development, one of the project's developers.

Iglesias said the 1- to 3-bedroom home community will be gated and include a clubhouse, swimming pool, playground and dog park.

He estimates the total occupancy of the complex will be about 290 residents. Generation Housing Development has a contract to purchase the property with plans to open summer, 2015.

Veronica Sopher, Leander ISD School and Community Relations Executive Director, confirmed the proposed site, now vacant, is zoned to the district's Vandegrift High School, Four Points Middle School and Grandview Hills Elementary School, all located west of the project.

The proposed complex is approximately 2.5 miles from the district's Cedar Park High School in Cedar Park, yet 5.6 miles from Vandegrift High School in Austin.

"LISD sets attendance zones based on current and projected population," Sopher said. "As new developments are approved, LISD looks at developers' timelines and will make adjustments to those zones."

The property's driveway is proposed to be located on RR 620, with traffic limited to right-turn in, right-turn out, Iglesias said.

He said the project was originally planned for 240 units but he scaled back to half that size after speaking with neighbors on nearby Windy Ridge who had concerns over the impact of the complex on the already-crowded highway fronting the build, RR 620.

The city of Austin will not require a traffic impact analysis for this property, said Johnnie Price, supervising engineer for the city of Austin Planning and Development Review Department. However, Iglesias said he will be contracting with a civil engineering firm to conduct a traffic impact analysis for the Texas Department of Transportation, the state agency with jurisdiction over the highway, when the time comes.

Price said his office is reviewing the project's Development Assessment before the developers, Generation Housing Development and Realtex Development Corporation, file a formal site plan application.
