City leaders in Round Rock, Pflugerville and Hutto are considering proposals for projects that will provide a mix of housing, retail, entertainment and restaurant options.

The District, a $200 million private capital project, will be the first large-scale mixed-use development in Round Rock. A site has been selected near SH 45 N and Greenlawn Boulevard.

A proposed development in Pflugerville could span SH 130.

On the west side, approximately 81 acres south of Typhoon Texas are slated for the development. On the east, the plans call for 31 acres south of Hendrickson High School. The project is being vetted by city departments before possible votes on zoning and approval of the development.

A mixed-use development anchored by Perfect Game is in the works for a site north of Hwy. 79 and west of CR 132 in Hutto. An $800 million private investment makes this project the largest economic development deal in the history of Hutto. Groundbreaking on the project is anticipated later this year.
