Officials from Hays County and the city of Kyle gathered Dec. 11 in an undeveloped lot at the corner of Kyle Crossing and Kohler's Crossing to celebrate breaking ground on the Kyle Crossing Business Park.


“When I look that direction, what I see is opportunity,” Kyle Mayor Travis Mitchell said during his remarks.


Developed by Majestic Realty, which has projects across the U.S., theKyle Crossing Business Park will be a two-building industrial and warehouse complex with a combined 535,113 square feet of space. Mitchell said the development is part of a plan to draw more jobs to Kyle.


“It’s the desire of the county and the city and the school district to work together to bring about the very best in commercial and residential development for the city of Kyle so that the people that live here can also work here and play here and grow families here and enjoy life here,” Mitchell said. “And that’s what this is really all about.”


In June, both the Kyle City Council and the Hays County Commissioners Court approved an economic incentive agreement with Majestic giving the company a five-year rebate on property taxes that will diminish as the space is leased.


Construction is expected to be complete in the third quarter of 2019.
