KINDRED UNCOMMON Austin-based builder Kindred Uncommon, formerly known as Cantina, is set to build a new, modern pocket neighborhood tailored for those age 55 and up on 6.5 acres of land across the street from Buda City Hall at 767 Main St., Buda. The purpose of a pocket neighborhood is to encourage residents to interact with their neighbors through centralized common areas and are usually on the smaller scale of single-family residences. The existing 2,500-square-foot home on the property will be converted into a shared space called Great House for the residents with a kitchen, cafe, indoor and outdoor dining, a pool and more. There will be 76 one- and two-bedroom units across the property ranging from 520-1,130 square feet. Groundbreaking is anticipated for this summer, Managing Partner AJ Viola said. “There’s an intention behind this that is so much more than just creating a modern-looking community. We really are trying to create something that we don’t feel like exists, really at all, let alone for older adults: a community that you can move to and feel like it’s going to be a place where you will know other people who live there,” Viola said.

700 BUNTON LANE The Kyle Planning and Zoning Commission approved the preliminary plan for a 318-acre development north of Waterleaf Park at 700 and 800 Bunton Lane by Rastegar Property Co. on May 10. Representatives from Rastegar brought a presentation on the development to City Council in September, but no action was taken at that time. The developer is based in Austin and has acquired land and existing developments throughout the metro to expand its footprint. The property was purchased in 2019 in two separate acquisitions, according to founder and CEO Ari Rastegar, and has undergone rezoning to prepare for the development plans. More than 1,000 single- and multifamily units are planned throughout. About 60 acres will be reserved for open space integration into The Vybe, a citywide network of trails. Another 12 acres will be reserved for an elementary school. There will also be some mixed- use space and an amenity center. “What we’ve created is what we’re calling ‘futuristic suburbanism,’ that eectively is what we believe is the future of suburban living in a post-COVID[-19] environment,” Rastegar said.

CORRIDOR SOUTH 35 PROJECT San Marcos City Council voted to rezone almost 65 acres of a 112-acre property near the intersection of Clovis Barker Road and Hwy. 123 from a future development district to a light industrial district. The vacant property is surrounded by warehouses, manufacturing facilities and other vacant properties. “The owners of the property, as you’ll see from the map that was shown earlier, only 65 of the 112 acres are being rezoned. So that way, we can leave the remainder of the property undevelopable as green space,” said Pam Madere of Jackson Walker LLP, speaking on behalf of the McCoy Family Partnership One, the owners of the property. Council members voted to add a restrictive covenant to the rezoning that would prevent waste-related services. That passed 5-2, with Council Members Jude Prather and Shane Scott dissenting. The zoning change passed 6-1, with Baker dissenting. Each item was passed on rst reading and will come before the council a second time. “It’s approximately 600,000 square feet of industrial development with really large kind of open space areas that are preserved—all of that not developed,” Madere said. Space: 600,000 square feet on 112 acres Timeline: fall 2022 start date
