Planning & Development Director Ron Ruthven introduced this item. He stated that despite the pandemic, all current projects were moving along. He provided updates to the Commission on the following projects: Charles Schwab: The Phase II buildings associated with this project are close to completion and the move -in date for employees would likely occur in the first quarter of 2021. A large landscaping berm would be constructed between the Schwab Way and the Phase II parking garage and will feature large trees. The second phase of Schwab Way is mostly complete and has been paved up to Ottinger Road. An additional road will be built between Schwab Way and SH 170 to the east of Ottinger Road. The Plaza at Solana: All of the changes that were approved several years ago have been completed, including lighting and landscaping. One additional project to be completed will be a small establishment that would serve coffee and lunch items. The Knolls Development: Several permits have been issued and construction has started on several residential homes. The landscaping is currently being finished by the developer and should be completed in approximately one month. Entrada: Starbucks has now been open for over one month and is generating brisk business despite Westlake's reduced daytime population due to the pandemic. The retail corner has tenants currently moving in, comprised mostly of medical and personal service providers. The restaurants located on Restaurant Row have completed exteriors; however, the interior finish -out of these buildings are being delayed by the completion of the parking garage. The parking garage will be finished once the exterior stonework is applied, the elevator is installed, and the final electrical components have been fully completed. Chairman Brittan asked if the completion date for the parking garage was known. Mr. Ruthven said that this would likely be completed as soon as possible, and a mock-up of the stonework would need to be produced prior to being applied, as with all structures located in Entrada. It is estimated that this should be completed quickly after final approval of the stonework. Entrada Block "N": This mixed -use building located behind CVS will have ten (10) condominiums located above ground -floor retail and office spaces. This project has experienced some delays due to the pandemic and staff has been informed that the project will begin moving forward very soon. Entrada Block "P": This project, which was approved in May, has experienced a snag in moving forward. The project may resume progress, depending on several factors. Road construction: Construction has started on the main lanes of SH 170 at the intersection of US 377 to I-35. The effect on the Town of Westlake will mainly be from dedicated U-turn lanes on the side of Schwab Way and on both sides of US 377. Other impacts to Westlake will be the construction of Parish Lane, located between SH 170 and Roanoke, which will coincide with the closure of the Roanoke Road crossing. P&Z Minutes 09/21/20 Page 2 of 3 Construction has started on the SH 114 service roads, located between Dove Road and Davis Boulevard. It is estimated that construction will be complete in approximately 18 months. 5. CONDUCT A PUBLIC HEARING AND CONSIDER A RECOMMENDATION OF A REPLAT OF BLOCK K, LOT 10R, VAQUERO PHASE ONE RESIDENTIAL ADDITION. Planning & Development Director Ron Ruthven introduced this item. He stated that this property was originally three lots and was re -platted into a single lot approximately seven (7) years ago. This item would replat the property into two lots, and this request meets all zoning regulations and code requirements. Mr. Ruthven noted that due to a change in state law, a public hearing was still required for a replat, but notifications would be given after the plat is approved, and not before. No public hearing was conducted. MOTION: Commissioner Lee made a motion to approve the recommendation. Commissioner Morris seconded the motion. The motion carried by a vote of 3-0. 6.
