150 condos are planned for 26 acres near A.W. Grimes Boulevard and Old Settlers Boulevard in Round Rock.

Plans for a Round Rock development with 150 single-family condos advanced Oct. 24.

Round Rock City Council voted to annex 86.645 acres north of Old Settlers Boulevard and west of A.W. Grimes Boulevard into the city limits. Of that land, the city zoned 26.102 acres for a planned unit development, or PUD, with plans indicating a future 150-home residential development.

“Likely in the next couple of months, you’ll see zoning applications for the remainder of [the 86.645 acres] that’ll include various commercial and office uses,” said Brad Wiseman, Round Rock’s director of planning and development, in an Oct. 22 presentation to City Council.

Plans submitted to the city call for single-family detached condos. Each condo will have a private entrance, parking and a fenced yard, per the plans.

Part of the project includes the extension of College Park Drive south to Old Settlers Boulevard, Wiseman said. The necessary right of way for College Park Drive through the property will be set aside, and a portion of the road will be built in conjunction with the development, he said.

Planning and Zoning Commission voted 9-0 to recommend approval of the rezoning application on Sept. 4.
