New details have been released regarding a project that will bring a new multifamily residential community to 27110 RR 12, Dripping Springs.

According to an amended wastewater agreement approved by Dripping Springs City Council on Nov. 10, CRTX Development LLC could construct on-site facilities in May 2023, with a replat approval expected by next May.


City Council in May approved a planned development district ordinance for the project, which could include 200 units across three buildings with 300 parking spaces, and will take up about 5.4 acres of an 8.5-acre tract.

The Nov. 10 amendment also set a May 2021 time frame for when CRTX Development will need to submit an agreement to the Texas Department of Transportation for proposed roadway improvements.

According to the ordinance, the developer will extend Rob Shelton Boulevard south to run along the east side of the property. The developer will also help facilitate and fund future intersection improvements at Rob Shelton and West Hwy. 290, including improved turn lanes. Improvements will be coordinated with the city and TxDOT.
