BEXAR COUNTY (KTSA News) — The New Braunfels City Council approved plans to develop nearly 1,900 acres in the city’s extraterritorial jurisdiction in northern Comal County Monday.
The master-planned, mixed-use community dubbed Mayfair will be along both sides of Interstate 35 — generally bounded by Watson Lane to the north, Kohlenberg Road to the south, FM 1101 to the east, and FM 1102 (Hunter Road) to the west.
The plan currently calls for nearly 6,000 new homes, more than 70 acres of commercial property, 120 acres of mixed-use, parks and four new Comal ISD schools.
The housing will be a mix of single-family homes, apartments, townhouses, duplexes and more.
The plan will also feature more than 35 miles of trails and a new connector under Interstate 35 between Watson Lane and Kohlenberg Road.
SouthStar Communities, the New Braunfels-based developer behind the project, said construction will begin this year with the first homes being ready in two years.
