Taylor Morrison building 55-acre site near Quinlan Park road

Builder Taylor Morrison broke ground the week of April 14 on a 55-acre residential development off Quinlan Park and Selma Hughes roads in the back of Steiner Ranch, said Adib Khoury, Taylor Morrison vice president of land resources.

In 2013 the original 211-acre tract was subdivided into three parcels including the Taylor Morrison portion and a 41-acre section retained by the owners that is now being sold to individual buyers as a custom home subdivision.

Taylor Morrison's development is inland but near the Lake Austin waterfront and will have two entrances—on Selma Hughes Road and Quinlan Park Road, Khoury said. Home sales for its 84 lots will begin around November, and the architecture of the gated community will be similar to the style of the homes within the University of Texas Golf Club community, he said.

Although the development tract is not located within the Steiner Ranch Master Association, Khoury said the project will be annexed into the association allowing future residents to access the association's amenities—pools, nature trails and clubhouses.

Custom lakefront community

Real estate partnership TR Vista Preserve of Richardson, Texas, is marketing its 41-acre portion of the McCormick Ranch tract to custom builders and individual buyers, said Chris Thompson, vice president of residential development for Thompson Realty Capital.

Thompson, who is the agent for TR Vista Preserve, said 17 residential lots are planned for the gated development, including five lakefront parcels. The interior lots will be just under 1 acre, and the lakefront lots will range in size from less than 2 acres to more than 3 acres each, he said. The entrance to the development will be off Selma Hughes Road, he said.

Thompson said sewer lines will be extended to both the Taylor Morrison and custom sections of development. He said the area lacks public sewer service.

The custom home community is not planned to be annexed into the SRMA, Thompson said.
