In a new feature we will update at the end of each month, we’ve plotted new construction — residential and commercial — on an interactive map. We’ve also assembled the data in a searchable, sortable table.

The San Marcos New Construction Map will complement our recently updated Central Texas Development Map, which provides a bigger-picture visualization of developments either underway or under consideration.
