Marble Falls (Burnet County) — A Dallas real estate firm received an apartment land use conditional use permit for a 192-unit complex, during last week’s City Council meeting.
The 17.61 acres of undeveloped property, parcHaus Marble Falls, is located west of Mustang Drive and south of Marble Falls High School in the eastern portion of the city.
Provident Realty Advisors, the developer, proposes a development of detached single-family style rental units with garages.
The unit mix will consist of 62 one-bedroom units, 64 two-bedroom units and 46 three-bedroom units, along with 361 parking spaces.
A project summary submitted by LJA Engineering noted that “parcHAUS developments are thoughtfully and cohesively designed within a park-like setting that provide connectivity to the private amenities and numerous courtyard pocket parks throughout.”
Amenities will include a clubhouse; fitness facility; pool with cabanas and barbecue grills; pickleball courts; an open activity lawn; a fenced dog park and open green space throughout the development.
The hardscape and landscape plans will comply with city code standards and must include a masonry wall along the north, south and west boundaries of the property, which neighbor residentially zoned properties. There will also be a 10-foot landscaped street edge beside Mustang Drive.
The project was recommended in May by the Planning and Zoning Commission with the following conditions:
The construction of a left turn lane from Mustang Drive into the apartment complex.
Dark Sky compliance.
A sidewalk leading to Marble Falls High School.
Further evaluation of the wastewater capacity line to service the development to be addressed at the site development phase.
Marble Falls-based land surveyors Cuplin Associates Inc. and the Austin office of LJA Engineering were retained by Provident Realty.
