After facing a series of questions from Round Rock City Council in January, RGC Multifamily revised plans for The Place at Mays Crossing, a planned affordable apartment complex near downtown Round Rock. Notably, the developers dropped a previous request for a property tax waiver, over which several council members had expressed concerns.

The revised proposal adds 20 units, for a total of 244, to a four-or-five-story building slated for a 2.75-acre site at 150 Mays Crossing Drive, Round Rock. Plans call for income-restricted multifamily housing in which residents must earn an overall average of 60% of the area median income to be eligible.


"Thank you for the work you've done to get this project back in front of us," Council Member Will Peckham said. "I think it's going to provide much-needed housing in the area."

The complex will have a maximum of 30 two-bedroom units at 1,020 square feet each, said Brad Wiseman, the city’s director of planning and zoning. The remainder of the units are proposed to be studio and one-bedroom units at 580 square feet and 700 square feet, respectively.

Round Rock City Council voted 7-0 to approve a resolution of no objection and to enter into a development agreement with RGC Multifamily for the complex.
