A 43-acre plat of undeveloped land west of the Living Spaces warehouse in Pflugerville has been rezoned to allow for more flexibility for future development.

Specifically, the land is between SH 45 N and New Meister Lane, just to the east of the Springbrook Corporate Center.

City Council unanimously approved the rezone, also called the Longhorn Rezoning, during a first reading of the ordinance at a July 27 meeting.

In addition to allowing for more flexibility with regard to development, the rezone from an urban level district to a campus industrial district is consistent with adjacent zoning, according to city information.

A letter to the city from applicant Winklemann & Associates, a firm representing the landowner and the developers, stated the intent of the rezone request is to facilitate development of light industrial, distribution, data center and similar facilities.



During the meeting, a representative of Winkleman & Associates said one portion of the development plan involves moving the north/south portion of Meister Lane to the west of what is now a bisected sliver of the property.

Following a brief discussion of who would foot the bill for the road relocation and improvement, which officials said would be determined at a later date, council members agreed Meister Lane is in need of an overhaul, however that comes.

"That road is in very sad shape," Council Member David Rogers said. "It is in need of work."

City Attorney Charles Zech said the road is a platting issue and would come up at a later date.
