The Gin at the Co-Op District began its first phase of development after a groundbreaking ceremony Nov. 2.
Demolition operations commenced Nov. 6 with the removal of slabs at the southern end of the property’s lawn. Work will begin on the process of moving the site’s iconic cotton silos to other locations on the property.
The Co-Op District will be the new home for Hutto City Hall, a two-story, 40,000-square-foot building located on the far northern end of the development. Currently, vertical construction on the new city hall is expected to begin in April and a move-in date is set for December 2018.
Construction on essential infrastructure for the Co-Op District will begin simultaneously to construction on Hutto City Hall. This includes the creation of several roads and the demolition or renovation of existing road stock. Additionally, there are plans to erect two parking garages in this first phase of construction.
