Hutto breaks ground on Schneider Boulevard construction; projects to start early

Hutto city officials, residents and representatives of Titan Development were present Oct. 17 for the Schneider Boulevard groundbreaking ceremony.

Hutto city officials, residents and representatives of Titan Development were present Oct. 17 for the Schneider Boulevard groundbreaking ceremony.

Hutto city officials, residents and representatives of Titan Development gathered to break ground on construction of Schneider Boulevard, a project that precedes construction on the upcoming Innovation Business Park development.

Schneider Boulevard will bring infrastructure vital to the construction, development and eventual expansions to Titan Development's Innovation Business Park, according to Hutto City Manager Odis Jones.

"This is the first in many steps to reposition the overall economy in Hutto for many generations to come," Jones said.

Schneider Boulevard will connect the Emory Farms neighborhood to the east of Alliance Boulevard to Innovation Boulevard on the left and will run east to west. The land was acquired from the Schneider family, longtime Hutto residents who were present at the ceremony and helped break ground on the project.

The construction of Schneider Boulevard precedes groundbreaking on Titan Development's Innovation Business Park by only a few weeks, and the two projects will move forward together. This groundbreaking ceremony marks the beginning of infrastructure development for the business park, including drainage, signage and street construction.

Looking ahead, the Schneider Boulevard groundbreaking is one of several ceremonies Hutto has planned to mark the beginning of construction on some of the city's anticipated projects.

Groundbreaking on the first phase of development at the Gin at the Co-Op off Hwy. 79 will take place Nov. 2 and the official groundbreaking for Titan Development's Innovation Business Park is scheduled for Nov. 6. Both projects are ahead of schedule from their initial estimated groundbreaking dates.

The first phase of construction on Innovation Business Park will yield 150,000 square feet of mixed-use speculative building space.

Titan Development Chairman Kevin Reid spoke before the groundbreaking ceremony Oct. 17 and praised Hutto for it's approach to growth.

"You have this I-35 corridor that is the fastest growing place in America, and now you're a part of this corridor, too," Reid told attendees.
