Austin, Texas—November 2, 2022. Austin-based Legend Communities — a full-service developer of single-family residential, multi-family and commercial projects in Central Texas and California — today announced the groundbreaking ceremony for Phase I of The Square at Lohmans will take place Wednesday, November 9, 10:00a.m., at 1931 Lohmans Crossing in Lakeway.
“The Square at Lohmans will be a modern take on an old-fashioned concept,” said Legend Communities
Founder and CEO Haythem Dawlett. “Main streets and town squares have been around for hundreds of years. This project will combine the charm of those traditional features with the convenience and other advantages of modern design and energy efficiency. Plus, there will be plenty of outdoor gathering spaces to accommodate families and friends, including a park featuring an amphitheater, pavilion, public restrooms and splash pad.”
Legend Communities Chief Operating Officer Bill Hayes agreed. “The Square at Lohmans will have something for everyone — singles, young families, more mature families and downsizers. We are creating something Lakeway has never really had before — a central gathering place for all the people who live here. The combination of the road network we are building and the town square, I believe, will make this the most important project this city has ever seen.
The event will begin with brief remarks by Lakeway Mayor Tim Kilgore and Legend Communities executives Dawlett and Hayes, followed by the actual groundbreaking and refreshments. Attendees will be able to view site plans, conceptual drawings and elevation renderings.
