Georgetown (Williamson County) –An Austin developer’s site plan for a bank branch was approved at last week’s Planning and Zoning Commission meeting.
The 0.74 acre (32,371 sq. Ft.) Property is undeveloped and is located at 405 S. Austin Avenue in the central part of town.
Scott Carr proposes to construct a three story office building with a bank lobby, totaling 29,619 square feet. The project, known as Bank R, will belong to the entity registered as Carr Ryan RE 4, LLC.
The site plan proposed 91% waterproof coverage (0.68 acres or 29,619 square feet). It includes a two-lane driving bank section, surface parking for 46 vehicles, monumental signage and a natural stone retaining wall. The building will be 40 feet high, reaching 49 feet with the tallest parapet.
Carr hired Mustard design d’Austin, landscape architects Studio 16:19 from Round Rock and Austin-based civil engineers Steger Bizzell, who also served as surveyors.
This had been the third review of the application and is now heading to city council for final approval.
