Craddock Avenue will be extended to Lime Kiln Road to accommodate a residential subdivision on property recently annexed by the city.
If it is built, 212-acre Windemere Ranch will feature about 200 single-family homes on lots ranging from 15,500 to 24,000 square feet, according to a subdivision concept plan. In addition, the plan calls for 13.92 acres of multi-family development, four two-acre pockets of commercial property and 16 acres of open space.
The Windemere Ranch property adjoins the 251-acre Spring Lake Preserve purchased by the city last year with city and county bond funds. The subdivision includes tracts that had been under contract to developer Terry Gilmore for possible use as a golf course and resort planned for part of a hotel and convention center project on what is now the preserve.
It is not clear when construction might start on the subdivision. Austin-based developer Vince Wood, who owns the property, did not return phone calls for comment.
In addition to the open space dedication, the Windemere plan would require about 13 acres in right-of-way dedication for the Craddock extension and new collector streets.
