San Antonio (Bexar County) — An Austin-based developer is preparing a unique manufactured housing development that will encompass 526 acres in south Bexar County.
An attorney with
Brown & Ortiz discussed the project Tuesday before the Zoning Commission, and claimed it was unlike any concept in manufactured housing she had encountered in South Texas.
Concept Site Plan
The concept was described as a “homestead manufactured housing community” that will offer a variety of plot sizes. Future homesteaders will have their choice of 2-acre, 1/2-acre, or 1/3-acre lots.
The developer will reserve 115 acres to the north and west as open green space.
There will also be a 25-acre amenity center that will include a playground and swimming pool.
A property management group will be contracted to maintain all common areas.
The project site is zoned Farm & Ranch, but the Zoning Commission agreed to recommend its conversion to Manufactured Housing Conventional District.
It has an address of
21193 Lamm Road. Lamm Road is its eastern boundary and Interstate 37 frontage road is its western boundary. The property is just north of the city of Sandy Oaks.
The Planning Commission also reviewed the application Wednesday morning to amend a related land use.
The developer is
McDonald Development Group LLC.
