February target for state land sale close; final plan still TBD

The sale of state land between Rosedale and MoPac is expected to close in February, per an article in last month’s Statesman. The buyer, Milestone Community Builders, is Austin’s largest locally owned homebuilding firm. They say plans for use of the land will evolve over time but will involve some single-family dwellings.  The company intends to “work closely with the neighborhood associations around the Bull Creek site and with the city of Austin to collaboratively identify the best use for the tract and build an incredible project together”, according to Garrett Martin, Milestone president and CEO. They expect discussions with neighborhoods to start “very shortly.” Read the entire article (note: there may be a paywall).
