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.
Masterplan obtained a conditional use permit for a TABC late-hours permit for the Wing Daddy’s restaurant. Since the restaurant is less than 200 feet from property zoned for single-family residential use, a variance from residential compatibility standards with respect to parking was requested and granted in conjunction with the conditional use site plan.
