Round Rock City Council unanimously approved Nov. 12 a rezoning request for a planned unit development, or PUD, for the Outlet Malls Apartments. The rezoning for the area, already labeled as a PUD, is mainly to help clean things up and organize the zoning region more efficiently for staff, Planning and Development Services Director Brad Wiseman said Nov. 12.

Historically, the original PUD in the area was approved in 2005; it included the Premium Outlet Mall, a movie theater, retail stores and restaurants, per city documents. North of the property reside the Bass Pro Shop, retail, restaurants, a hotel, and urban-style, multifamily dwellings.

The rezoning incorporates a commercial parcel as well as an urban-style, multifamily parcel, per documents. The commercial region is approximately three acres in size; authorized uses include a grocery store; hotel, motel or lodging unit; office units and medical office units.

The urban-style, multifamily parcel has an area of roughly seven acres and includes 35 units per acre, according to documents. The maximum height for the area is five stories, and 75% of parking is required to be in an attached garage, per documents. Mobile food establishments will also be permitted in the designated area, per documents.

No members of the public chose to speak on the agenda item. Round Rock City Council dispensed of the rezoning request's second reading, and the request was formally approved Nov. 12.
