The Marble Falls City Council has approved a Development Agreement with Farmers Branch-based Centurion American Development Group achieving a key step to breaking ground on a 1073-acre mixed-use project next to the Baylor Scott and White Campus. The large-scale project on the north-west corner of State Highway 71 and U.S. Highway 281 will include more than 1900 homes, over 500 multi-family units, and approximately 75,000 square feet of retail and commercial space, as well as a City sports complex.
The concept plan for the sports complex, a City owned public facility, will be included in Phase I of the Development on an approximately 26-acre portion of the property and is set to contain four (4) baseball fields consisting of two 225-foot baseball fields and two 300-foot baseball fields, four (4) full-size soccer fields, two (2) multi-purpose field areas, an approximant one-mile walking path around the Sports Facilities Tract’s perimeter, parking lots, and concession/restroom buildings.
Phase-3 of the project development proposes a 20,000 square foot public recreation center.
Centurion American is set to close on the property later this month.
“The sports complex will be a significant facility for our community. It is an initiative that City Council and City staff have been working towards for years to achieve with potential developers. The sports complex will be a place where children and their families can enjoy athletics and our youth sports programs can grow and develop.” – Caleb Kraenzel, Assistant City Manager, City of Marble Falls
