Pflugerville officials are considering a slew of changes to the 400-acre Lakeside Meadows mixed-use development located south of Lake Pflugerville.

Among the revisions is rezoning approximately 61 acres of the development’s corporate campus section to campus industrial, the same designation as the industrial buildings currently underway.

Developer James Kerby said the kind of office buildings allowed by corporate campus zoning are in much lower demand now than when the original Lakeside Meadows PUD was approved in early 2020.

“The conversations that we had when we were thinking about that portion of the project are different conversations than what we have today,” Kerby said. “People work different—they work remote.”

However, some City Council members expressed concern that campus industrial zoning would not fit the original vision of the development.

“People driving to Pflugerville—are they going to see these big warehouse-type buildings? That just really projects an ugly image for Pflugerville,” Council Member Ceasar Ruiz said.

The revisions also include a few changes to roadways in the development. Previously, Pflugerville Parkway was planned to be rerouted to run through the north section of Lakeside Meadows.

The proposed revisions remove the Pflugerville Parkway rerouting but extend other roads within the development to connect to SH 130 and Weiss Lane. The revisions also allow for the construction of a bridge or tunnel across Pflugerville Parkway to facilitate walking and biking without disrupting vehicle traffic.

Other minor modifications include changes to the density and height requirements of some residential areas.

The amendments were up for approval at council’s Jan. 11 meeting, but council voted to postpone the item until its next meeting Jan. 25 so city staff could address some of their concerns.
