New mixed-use project coming to corner of Hwy. 79 and Kenney Fort Boulevard


A new mixed-use project could bring up to 530 housing units and commercial space to the northwest corner of Kenney Fort Boulevard and Hwy. 79 following Round Rock City Council's approval of annexation and rezoning requests as well as a utilities service agreement.





The trio of action items went before council July 28, requesting an 8.955-acre plot of land be rezoned to a planned unit development to allow for mixed residential and commercial use, to be serviced by city water and wastewater utilities and annex 7.287 acres of the property that are not already within the city's limits. The city previously annexed the property's frontage along Hwy. 79 in 1979, according to city documents. All were approved unanimously.

The PUD zoning allows for a maximum build height of eight stories, although Brad Wiseman, Round Rock Planning and Development Department director, said the developer, Gulf RC Ventures LLC, is planning a multifamily project with a height of six stories. According to documents detailing the zoning request, 90% of necessary parking for the development will be contained in an attached parking garage, and 25% of units will have balconies.

The commercial section of the property will operate under a limited-use zoning, prohibiting commercial uses, such as drive-thrus, fuel sales and auto service facilities.

This development is located diagonally across from Kalahari Resorts Texas to the southeast and north of Hwy. 79 across from another PUD approved by council in 2021.
