COMPILED BY HUNTER TERRELL
HEB Construction started in April on the new 117,000-square-foot H-E-B in Wolf Lakes Village in Georgetown, said Donald McLachlan, one of the proprietors of the development. The grocery store will include a barbecue restaurant, a car wash and a fuel station. H-E-B plans to open in spring 2023. McLachlan and his wife, Iva, shared a presentation April 11 with local developers that provided construction updates regarding the 164-acre mixed-use tax increment reinvestment zone, or TIRZ. Seton Medical Center will transform 12 acres into a multistory medical oce and surgical center starting in June. The McLachlans’ other properties include Wolf Ranch Town Center, Wolf Ranch North and Wolf Ranch Hillwood. Georgetown and Williamson County approved the $130 million Wolf Lakes Village TIRZ in 2018. Space: 117,000 square feet Timeline: April 2022-spring 2023
SELFSTORAGE UNIT Georgetown City Council approved the second reading of a special-use permit for indoor self-storage at its April 12 meeting. The property owner of 4402 Williams Drive requested to construct two indoor self-storage buildings. Each will be three stories, or 39 feet, tall. The building closest to D.B. Wood Road will be about 48,000 square feet, and the second building will be about 99,000 square feet. The local commercial zoning district has a maximum building height of 40 feet. The letter of intent provided by Austin Civil Engineering states the facility will be “a luxury high- end multilevel and drive-up-level secured storage facility for the businesses and residents within the Georgetown community.” Tenants will be able to access their units after hours through a secure gate and secure smart lock systems. Space: 48,000 square feet; 99,000 square feet Timeline: TBD
POTENTIAL SINGLEFAMILY NEIGHBORHOOD On April 26, Georgetown City Council approved the rst reading of a voluntary annexation of 38.24 acres at 3307 and 3311 Hwy. 29. The applicant wishes to develop a single-family subdivision called Riverstone on the property, which has a future land-use designation of mixed- density neighborhood. However, there is no zoning designation on the property as it is located in the city’s extraterritorial jurisdiction. The property has three residential structures on it connected by a private drive with access to Hwy. 29. The remainder of the property, which backs up to the South Fork of the San Gabriel River, is undeveloped and hosts a dense array of trees and foliage. A second reading vote on the annexation will occur at the next City Council meeting May 10. Space: 38.24 acres Timeline: TBD
