With shovels, dirt, and live music, Northline construction has officially begun.
Leander’s “new downtown” had a groundbreaking ceremony on March 4. City Council, local officials and Leander residents celebrated the start of the $715 million project. Donuts, coffee and live music gave attendees a feel of what the empty property may look like in the future.
Alex Tynberg, the Northline developer, said his project’s vision has not changed in the last four years, and he is excited for it to become reality.
“I always felt like a downtown urban, mixed-use environment is what this project needed,” he said.
Tynberg said he will meet with the city to receive a notice to proceed and for construction to begin in the coming days. He said the groundbreaking event is instrumental in beginning vertical projects and making further announcements in the next six months.
“I feel like this is going to be a game-changer for this whole Williamson County area,” he said.
The Northline project is a 115-acre, mixed-use project in Leander’s transit-oriented development area between US 183 and Toll 183A. Project plans include shopping, dining, housing and a town center and uses $15 million in city-allocated bonds. The project was first introduced in 2017 as a “vibrant, mixed-use town center.”
