Complex planned for Four Points area awaits rezoning

Friday, September 24, 2021 by Jonathan Lee

A 340-unit apartment complex is planned for the growing Four Points area in Northwest Austin, but before the project can break ground, the developer needs to rezone the 17-acre property at 7911 and 8001 North FM 620 to allow multifamily use. The zoning case is moving through the city’s approval process. On Tuesday, the Zoning and Platting Commission unanimously recommended that Council approve Multifamily Low-Density (MF-2) zoning for the site, which currently has three different types of commercial zoning. City staffers also support the rezoning, saying it is compatible with other uses in the area. The existing apartment complex next door is also zoned MF-2. Staffers noted that the proposed apartments would “provide additional residential housing in this area that can serve the students” at nearby Concordia University. The rezoning will likely be on City Council’s consent agenda, in which case Council members would approve the rezoning unanimously and without discussion. A Council date has not yet been set.
