Masterplan assisted one of its strategic partners by amending a PUD (Planned Unit Development) zoning ordinance for a 78-acre mixed use tract in Round Rock, Texas. Members of the project team originally collaborated several years prior to establish the PUD, while working together at another engineering firm. The PUD established allowed land uses as well as site and building design criteria based on the proximity of the area to transportation thoroughfares, regional higher education campuses, and an existing single-family residential neighborhood in order to create compatible and complimentary infill development projects. Developed uses include retail, restaurant and commercial uses, medical office uses, townhouse uses, and a church.

The Liberty Mutual Regional Office building is a 1.1 million sq. ft. building located at the corner of State Highway 121 and the North Dallas Tollway in the vibrant Legacy West development. At a height of nearly 300 feet, the Liberty Mutual Building was the tallest office building in Plano, Texas at the time. Designed by architect Omniplan, the space created a community-centered workplace that brought together the employees. Masterplan was brought in to handle the signage in regard to local ordinances. The signage ordinance allowed a specific size sign on each side of the building. Masterplan worked to alter the rules to add the allowed size for the east and west sides of the building to the north and south sides permitting two larger signs on the north and south facing sides.
