New Development in Circle C Ranch
Many people I have spoken with lately at open houses or in the community have asked about the new development in Circle C Ranch. Most noticeable is the new retail center of Parkside Village at MoPac and Slaughter. The initial phase includes Alamo Drafthouse movie theater, Austin Diagnostic Clinic and two retail buildings. The Austin Diagnostic Clinic includes an urgent care center, general practice, allergies, and pediatric divisions. Tenants for the retail buildings include Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, ATX Bikes, zPizza, and KokoFitCenter. Other tenants currently negotiating leases include a Mexican restaurant, a yoga center, children's retail, a salon, dry cleaners and ice cream shop.
At LaCrosse/MoPac a new graduate school of physical therapy, which will be for approximately 500 graduate physical therapy students, is under construction. The University of St. Augustine will be constructing Phase I of the school over the next several months. This includes the primary building and parking lot. The building is set back from LaCrosse, and the entry will be across from Eclipse.
There are also several places where new homes are being constructed in Circle C Ranch. There are two land parcels at the on the east and west sides of Barstow at the entry of Circle C North that will be developed as single-family homes. On the east side, six homes will be built and there will be one private drive with an entry near the existing mail center. The exterior of the residential development will be surrounded by a masonry wall to match the existing wall around Vintage Place. On the west side, there will be 22 homes, with one street and an entry off Barstow.
The largest new home community by far in Circle C Ranch is Avana, which has 163 lots now and plans to expand to 300 more lots. Avana is part of Circle C Ranch, and the homeowner’s association does intend to work with the builders to add a pool and community center South of Escarpment in part to serve this growing community. The development of Grey Rock Ridge, a 386 home community, has been approved at the intersection of MoPac and 45, near Avana, Circle C and Meridian.
