Construction is slated to begin in 2023 on a 2,200-acre master planned community on Lake Travis, just off Texas Highway 71 in west Travis County. Thomas Ranch, primarily along the Pedernales River, is expected to include over three thousand single-family homes, multi-family housing, a resort hotel and spa, a network of trails, and over 700 acres of open space, according to Connect CRE. It also will include “250,000 square feet of retail, dining, and office services in a downtown district.” The community will have direct Lake Travis access.
Blakefield LLC is the lead developer of the project, which was approved by the Travis County Commissioners’ Court in 2017. At the time of the approval, Blakefield’s lead developer said, “Thomas Ranch is a community that the Spicewood area will benefit from, providing economic opportunity as well as improvements to existing streets off Paleface Ranch Road.”
