The city of Lakeway in the Greater Austin suburbs lacks a central gathering place for its residents. A local developer is working to change that with a $500M mixed-use development that will provide its own take on a town square.
The Colony Park area in Austin hasn’t had equitable access to healthy food, transit, health care, and jobs since it was annexed in 1973. Since 2012, federal and local groups have been working to change this through the Colony Park Sustainable Community Project. Now that the project has been approved and funded by the city, it is moving toward construction.
