Four new hotels coming to Pflugerville next year


Highlights

Texas Typhoon Adventure Park, which attracts an estimated 300,000 visitors each year, is nearby.

All four of the hotels are set to open in the fall of 2019, according to NewQuest.

Four new hotels are on the way to the city of Pflugerville.

The hotels – affiliated with the Holiday Inn Express, Home2 Suites, La Quinta del Sol and Tru brands – will be adjacent to each other at Stone Hill Town Center, at the Texas 130 and Texas 45 toll roads.

Houston-based NewQuest Properties, the center’s developer, refers to the interchange as Pflugerville’s “Main and Main.”

“With four hotels coming to Stone Hill Town Center, it’s a testament to the project and the strength of this site,” NewQuest vice president Rebecca Le said in a written statement. “It shows our project is continuing to grow after 10 years of development.”

Stone Hill Town Center sits on 196 acres and spans more than 1 million square feet of leasable space. The project is home to a number of retailers, including Dick’s Sporting Goods, Home Depot, Petco and Super Target, as well as a nine-screen Cinemark movie theater.

Typhoon Texas Waterpark is nearby.

“The amenities of this center with its shopping, restaurants and entertainment are what have sparked these four hotels to come here,” Le said. “Everything is within walking distance for their guests.”

All four of the hotels are set to open in the fall of 2019, according to NewQuest.

Pflugerville has a current population of 63,359 residents, ranking third on the list of fastest-growing U.S. cities with at least 50,000 residents, Le said. The city’s population grew by 6.5 percent from 2016 to 2017 – growth that she said has made the area very appealing to retailers, restaurateurs and hoteliers.

Within 3 miles of Stone Hill Town Center, data from NewQuest indicates there are currently 84,729 residents with an average annual household income of $116,416.

“NewQuest’s partners watched the growth of the rooftops and took a large stake of land a decade ago because they knew this would be a prime retail intersection,” Le said. “With the opening of the toll road, growth has been rapidly expanding outward from Austin’s core.”
