Presidio Brings Mixed Use to Cedar Park


Presidio 1

Think “mixed-use” development is only for downtown Austin? Think again! Riverside Resources, a Central Texas development firm, is teaming up with LRK architecture firm, to bring the Presidio project — 100 acres of lofts, offices, shops, restaurants and a hotel — to Cedar Park along Parmer Lane south of RM 1431.

Given the growth of the Austin metro area, we expect to see more mixed-use development announcements popping up across the region — especially along the Capital Metro Red Line, which includes stops near The Domain, Lakeline Mall and in Leander, where an Austin Community College campus is in the works. Why? Traffic! The average person in Central Texas lost 42 hours of time to commuting in 2013, and commute times are only expected to increase. Perhaps bringing mixed-use concepts into the suburbs will help move commute times in the right direction.
