 The Central Texas Mobility Authority's -CTRMA, is considering accelerating the extension of 183A Toll, originally planned to begin in eight to 10 years. "Now we're thinking that we could do it in three to five years,.....When we opened, we had 80,000 - 90,000 transactions a day.... and is now down to the 50,000 - 60,000 range" said Steve Pustelnyk, CTRMA director of communications.    "We'll know more in the fall, once we've had the opportunity to analyze the potential cost, and with a little bit more long-term revenue under our belts." Although the amount of extension is not yet known, 183A Toll is intended eventually to reach just south of the San Gabriel River - or perhaps beyond.  Much depends upon how Leander's transit-oriented development changes the landscape. "Between our road ...

 Driving by US. Hwy 183 (Bell Road) and Crystal Falls parkway I couldn't help but notice the enormous cleared tract of land - 35 football fields in size to be exact!  The landscape is forever changed, as developers for the Gateway at Leander broke ground and cleared trees, houses and even Lacy Drive!  Construction on the retail shopping center will begin in October.  The site will include stores like Lowe's, Kohl's, Taco Bell, IBC and Regions Bank, Starbucks, and McDonalds.Lowe's is expected to open in March 2008.The recent explosion of Leander and the surrounding area has made large chain retailers take notice!  The rooftop count is growing and they have plenty of dollars that can be spent right in their own city instead of other cities getting those sales tax dollars!  Nationally reco...

                                                                                          Leander residents who make the daily drive to Austin have a new, eco-friendly commuting option.Capital Metro's commuter rail has officially opened its first Central Texas station in Leander.  While the train is not yet running, the park-and-ride area can be used by bus riders. The commuter rail system will open in 2008 and run along a 32-mile route and with a commute time of approximately 50 minutes (one way) to get down town."Capital Metro's commuter trains will be vital to the development of a transportation-rich Leander over the next decade," said Mayor John Cowman.

Texas X Park could be seen as Leander, TX attempt to steal the X Games site away from Cali. Central Texas already has a very fun & growing X games type park in the Texas Ski Ranch, originally just a ski lake & a cable lake with a fun little bar/restaurant. It now has a motorcross track, a rock climbing wall & a skatepark. This is located between Austin & San Antonio. The plan for the Leander Skate Park is something similar but  on a larger scale. It is planned to be 203 Acres including the two lakes, skateboarding, Bmx, Motorcross, with Retail & other Commercial businesses. There is already a lot of residential developing building towards that area, and there are many more planned that will surround the Park. Some other interesting notables is that it is to be a Non-Profit & will hold m...

The city of Leander has approved the concept plans of approximately 430 multifamily units on 27 acres and 230,000 plus square feet of retail on a total of 53.7 acres.  The plans were approved August 17, 2006.There is no doubt the city of Leander is preparing itself for the grea migration of people.  Taking a page from the "if you build it, they will come" philosophy!  Once the new mass transit system is in full swing making the commute to down town ~50 minutes and it is expected once the Mopac realignment is moved East to SH130 and the Texas Trans corridor, this trip will be a mere 25 minutes!!!

The Woods @Crystal Falls is the oldest section with homes 10 yrs old built with a Traditional Style. The Boulders is a newer section developed by Production Builders in a traditional PUD style. Smaller Lots to make housing affordable. As you drive deeper into the subdivision you come upon the Fairways of Crystal Falls, which has homes on larger lots that are more hilly and even have some golf course & hill country views.
