A new 200-unit multi-family development being planned for 27110 RR 12 will move ahead in Dripping Springs after city council approved a Planned Development District ordinance May 12.

The development will include either 10 affordable housing units reserved for individuals making less than 60% of Hays County’s median income, or 20 affordable units for those making less than 80% of the median income, according to the city.

According to the PDD ordinance, the development will include three buildings that will be tapered in height, beginning with two stories and peaking at four stories in the middle of the development. The project will also have about 300 parking spaces, and will take up about 5.4 acres of an 8.5-acre tract.

Per the ordinance, developer CRTX Development will also extend Rob Shelton Boulevard south to run along the east side of the property, providing additional access other than from RR 12 to the west. The developer will also help facilitate and fund future intersection improvements at Rob Shelton and W. Hwy. 290, including improved turn lanes. Improvements will be coordinated with the city and Texas Department of Transportation.

A timeline for the project has not been confirmed. Similarly, a breakdown of bedrooms and bathrooms per unit has not been finalized by the developer.
