The Round Rock City Planning and Zoning Commission unanimously recommended approval of the re-zoning of the planned use development of Kenney Fort at its meeting on June 16, said Sara Bustiloz, public information officer.
The wing adjacent to the Dell Diamond baseball field is designed for mixed use, and this application aims to rededicate it to mixed use, urban style.
Located across from Kenney Fort Boulevard from Kalahari Resorts Texas, the 110.54-acre PUD would use 20 to 60% of the space for urban-style apartment buildings, up to 30% for mixed-use homes, and between 20 and 40% for single-family and townhouses . It is not yet clear how many individual housing units would be available with these limitations.
The Kenny Fort PUD concept plan calls for 25 acres of the property to be devoted to parks and open spaces.
According to the concept plan, a new land use called Maker Space was defined for the development. These are buildings with areas that are used for handicraft or small-scale manufacturing, as well as office space.
The project is being developed by Milhaus and Archo Residential. With this recommendation from the planning and development commission, the PUD will be submitted to the council for the first approval in its next meeting.
