BASTROP, TX-Plans are still developing for a 500-room resort hotel off Texas 71 between Austin and Bastrop. Camilla Hardee, vice president for Dallas-based Woodbine Development Corp., tells GlobeSt.com that the project is on track.

The $125-million development is planned for 635 acres owned by the Lower Colorado River Authority next to the organization’s McKinney Roughs Nature Park. The project could be similar to Woodbine’s 500-room Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort in northwest San Antonio.

Hardee says the project is in the pre-development design stage and that a market study is under way. “We’re also working on the permitting,” she says. That involves working out issues concerning roads and utilities.

Hardee declines to put a timetable on the project. “Until we get the permitting and the project fully capitalized, it’s premature to start putting a date out there,” she says. Work on the Bastrop project may rev up once Woodbine’s latest resort, the 735-room Westin Kierland Resort & Spa in Phoenix, opens in November, she says.
