Parke 27

Description Parke 27 (Case # SPC-2017-0372C) is a proposed large retail shopping center and office building on a 27 acre plot of land located at 7500-7800 N RM 620. It is zoned “GR-CO”. It is located on the west side of RM 620 and is about ¼ mile north of the RR 2222/RM 620 intersection and extends to just south of the Vista Parke Dr/RM 620 intersection (near Home Depot). This property is “grandfathered” to July 1985 city code regulations. The requirement for a 100 ft vegetative buffer (LDC para. 25-2-1023) under the Hill Country Roadway Ordinance does not apply to this property due to a court final summary judgment filed in Travis County on May 10, 2016.

CHAMPIONS TRACT 4

Description

Champions Tract 4 is a roughly 9 acre plot located on the southeast corner of 360 and 2222. The property is divided with 8 acres zoned GR and 1 zoned RR. The property is subject to the entitlements outlined in the 1996 Compromise Settlement Agreement between the City of Austin and the Champion Family. In 2005, Site Plan A for a 2 story retail development was granted but no development occurred. In July 2017 Site Plan B for a 5 story hotel with 220 units, 285 parking spaces and restaurant was submitted.

2222 CONA Position  Not yet determined – monitoring progress
Status
  • Aug 2017 – City of Austin determines that Site Plan B (hotel) is too different from Site Plan A (retail) and in order to retain entitlements granted by the 1996 Settlement Agreement, Part A must be revised and stay active.
  • Oct 2017 – Applicant applies for extension of Part A.
Issues
  • The approval of a third extension of the site plan allows entitlements from 1996 to be carried forward well over 20 years. Over that time, development codes have evolved significantly to reflect lessons-learned regarding harmful impacts to water supply, erosion and public safety. Repeated extensions result in further deviations from present-day responsible development.
Upcoming Dates  11/26/2018Deadline for ZAP to make a ruling regarding the application for extension.
