An 87,500-square-foot, mixed-use development is in the works for the Old Gin Property off Pecan Street in downtown Pflugerville, according to developer documents shared with Community Impact Newspaper Jan. 9.

Adeline Bui, owner of Hanovers Draught Haus in Pflugerville, said in a Jan. 9 phone call with Community Impact Newspaper that construction on the two-phase project is slated to begin in summer 2020, with anticipated completion of as early as 2021.


The development, as described by Bui, will include retail and boutique stores alongside residential and office space for lease. The site's address is listed as 310 E. Pecan St., adjacent to El Rincón.

Bui said plans for the development have been in the works for approximately 18 months, following her purchase of the land from the First United Methodist Church of Pflugerville in 2018. According to FUMC documents, the total sale price of the property, buyer financed, was $700,000.

Under current plans, the mixed-use development—named The Old Gin Pforum—is comprised of two phases: Phase 1 is an 87,500 sq. ft., 4-story mixed-use building, while Phase 2 includes both a 4-story mixed-use building and a parking garage. Bui confirmed that the exact size of Phase 2 has not yet been determined at this time.
