A logistics and distribution center could soon be coming to Pflugerville, following a land annexation into the city and rezoning approval by the city’s planning and zoning commission.

Under plans presented to Pflugerville’s planning and zoning commission Dec. 2, the 3.8 million-square-foot logistics and distribution center would be constructed on a 93.559-acre site on the north side of Pecan Street, west of the SH 130 corridor.

The city and the Pflugerville Community Development Corporation did not disclose the name of the company that plans to occupy the proposed distribution center. Plans indicate the proposed facility, referred to as “Project Charm” in city documents, would be 4-and-a-half stories and 96 feet high.

The main entrance to the distribution center is proposed for Pecan Street, where a private driveway would be constructed along with a traffic signal and turn lanes, according to city documents.

Annexation and zoning


The land now designated for the future distribution center was annexed into the city following approval from Pflugerville City Council on Nov. 26.

Pflugerville’s planning and zoning commission unanimously approved a rezoning request at its Dec. 2 meeting, changing the status of the land’s zone from agriculture to a planned unit development, or PUD, comprised of CL4 and CI zonings. CL4 zones are limited commercial districts that apply to urban districts, while CI zonings indicate commercial industrial developments.

The city’s comprehensive plan has identified this sector of the city as an area for mixed-use developments, employment centers and medium-to-high-density residential communities.

City staff confirmed at planning and zoning commission’s Dec. 2 meeting that the facility’s loading docks would be at the rear of the facility, with extensive landscaping implemented to help serve as a visual and noise barrier.

The number of employees to be hired for this specific site has not yet been disclosed, with city staff and property owners saying that number will fluctuate depending on seasonal work shifts.
