UPDATED JAN. 14: A representative from Hat Creek Burger Company said in an email that the restaurant is not among the businesses opening in the development at this time.

"Hopefully we will be in the future," the representative said.

ORIGINAL STORY: Plans are in motion that could bring several businesses into a development at the intersection of Smyers Lane and RM 620 in Round Rock.

A subdivision improvement permit, or SIP, application submitted Jan. 9 regarding the development, located at 17300 RM 620, indicates plans for more than 14,000 square feet of restaurant space and roughly 50,000 square feet of retail.

According to maps attached to the permit application, which is under review, the development could include Hat Creek Burger Co., Chick-fil-A, Wendy’s, Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen and an unidentified fast-food restaurant labeled "QSR," or quick-service restaurant. Maps also show two retail buildings and a building labeled "Service One." An unlabeled building is also included on the map.

A 22,000-square-foot Goodwill store is already under construction at the development and is expected to open this summer.

According to the city of Round Rock's planning department, the SIP is only a plan for utility and driveway improvements for future building sites at the development. Individual building sites are not included in the permit and will need to be submitted as site development permits, or SDPs, in the future. Until an SDP is submitted the tenants can not be confirmed, according to the city.

Community Impact Newspaper has reached out to the developer of the project for comment on the maps and potential tenants. This story will be updated if further information is received.
