City Council Special Session

Feb. 4, 2019


Legend Communities presented its concept for the proposed Square on Lohmans development to Lakeway City Council for a third time at a special session Feb. 4.

The company has an option with Lakeway MUD to purchase 60 acres behind the Oaks at Lakeway for the proposed development.

Bill Hayes, Legend Communities chief operating officer, presented a revised concept that could include a:

  • 3-acre park
  • 239 residential units
  • 10,000 square feet of restaurant space
  • 39,000 square feet of retail space
  • 53,000 square feet of office space
  • Two-lane divided road connecting to Main Street, with right-of-way for two additional lanes.

However, no decisions were made at the work session.

The next step is for Legend Communities to work with the city to host public town halls to review and receive feedback on the proposed design.

City Council Work Session

Nov. 7, 2018


Lakeway City Council hosted a work session with Legend Communities on Nov. 7 to discuss future development between the Oaks at Lakeway and Lohmans Crossing Road.


Legend Communities holds an option to purchase 60 acres in this area from Lakeway Municipal Utility District.


Earlier in 2018, the developer requested a zoning change which Lakeway Zoning and Planning Commission voted not to recommend to Lakeway City Council based on concerns about higher density and increased traffic.


Several months later and some trips to the drawing board and Legend has reimagined the project as smaller and less dense.


Legend representative Bill Hayes told City Council that the vision for the project features intimate traditional architecture.


At the meeting, Lakeway councilmembers communicated their desire for a project that is a better fit for Lakeway that would include:

  • Improved road connectivity in the form of arterial roadways that would relieve traffic congestion on RM 620.
  • Public gathering space
  • More green space

Hayes said it would take about 30 days to put together a high-level proposal specific to the property and 60-90 days to determine zoning and other details.
