Dripping Springs (Hays County)–City Council on May 12 approved a Planned Development District ordinance that supports construction of a 200-unit apartment complex, where 10 or 20 units will be reserved as affordable housing.
CRTX Development, based in the Dallas area, plans to build the multifamily development on an 8.5-acre tract at 27110 Ranch Road 12.
The yet-unnamed project will include three buildings with heights tapered from two to four stories.
There also will be 300 parking spaces, and an extension of Rob Shelton Boulevard, which runs parallel to RR 12 on the eastern edge of the project site.
Additionally, the developer pledged to pay for future upgrades at the intersection of Rob Shelton and U.S. Highway 290, which is north of the project site.

Representatives for the developer have said 10 units could be allocated for individuals making less than 60% of area median income, (AMI) or 20 units could be set aside for individuals earning less than 80% of AMI.
There is no information yet on an estimated construction timeline, delivery method or cost.
