COTTON CENTER

Size:  2,700 acres

Units:  Master-planned community of 9,000 homes

Developer:  Walton International

Jurisdiction:  Martindale and San Marcos, Texas

Status:  Entitlement Stage

Synopsis:  Initial acquisitions were within or adjacent to the city limits of the small town of Martindale on the San Marcos River. A community core was created off Highway 80 to anchor the development, provide a walkable commercial district, complement the historic downtown and provide a variety of residential land uses. As the acquisitions progresses, large tracts of residential and industrial land uses were added to provide opportunities for a regional jobs base that would, in turn, drive the need for housing. Major riparian areas, a rail corridor, a nearby airport, and existing circulation informed the conceptual land use plan.
