First building in Pflugerville’s Pecan District to begin construction Oct. 26


Presidium and Cid Galindo, developers on the $1.2 billion mixed-use development Pecan District, announced today they will break ground on the development’s first building Oct. 26.

A 272-unit apartment complex dubbed “The Elliott” represents the first stage of development for the Pecan District, according to a press release issued Monday afternoon.

The Elliott will offer one-and-two-bedroom apartment floor plans averaging 855-square-feet. Each apartment comes with a balcony and modern fixtures, according to Presidium.

Pflugerville’s first mixed-use, master planned development project is located on a 45-acre plot of land located at the southwest corner of West Pecan Street and Heatherwilde Boulevard.

The developers state the development will eventually feature spaces for office, retail, restaurant and civic uses.

Galindo, city of Pflugerville and Presidium officials will be on-site Oct. 26 to break ground on the project. Construction on The Elliott will take approximately 20 months, per today’s press release, and Presidium officials expect the first apartments to be ready in 2020.

Community Impact Newspaper will update this article when more details become available.

  1. Oh boy, MORE APARTMENTS! If there’s one thing Pville doesn’t have enough of, IT’S APARTMENTS!


  2. This is going to be an interesting ground zero to try to begin gentrifying Pville. However, depending on development choices, could be a nice addition to the area. Entertainment options are lacking here, sorely.

  3. Great. Who wants to bet this is just another cookie cutter slum lord mega apartment complex that looks like all the rest and changes management companies every two years or so? The third hideous apartment complex getting dropped within 1 mile that adds nothing to the community but more freaking people, traffic, and garbage. I hope they like shopping at auto part shops, dairy queen, Walgreens, gas stations and the dollar store. “will eventually feature spaces for office, retail, restaurant and civic uses.” When will that happen? by 2050? Never forget the Hawaiian falls debacle. This town will never progress with the current City council and PCDC not holding developers accountable. Makes one wonder if there is a conflict of interest there with all the missteps. Hmm…

    • Completely agree Pfred. There are lots of questionable decisions being made.

      I’m not against this construction, is the lack of preparation on infrastructure. Make the developer share the enhancements needed to accommodate the extra traffic, etc.
