Construction crews have begun clearing trees and building the access road in Steiner Ranch near Vista Ridge shopping center and the Real Estate Welcome Center and Canyon Glen Circle. This will be for tract MU-1B that will provide access to the the Quinlan Crossing shopping center.
“We had an obligation to build a road to provide access to that tract,” said Adib Khoury, vice president of land resources for Taylor Woodrow Communities, Steiner Ranch Ltd., Steiner’s developer.
“That’s the construction that’s going on right now. It’s the access road to provide access back to the tract, to the welcome center area,” Khoury said.
Steiner tract MU-1B consists of three parcels of land. The parcel that sits closest to Quinlan Crossing and the Randalls commercial development is under contract for a proposed 246-unit apartment complex.
The other two parcels of MU-1B that are closer to the Canyon Glen neighborhood are still for sale, Khoury said.
“There are no contracts pending,” Khoury said. “There’s nothing going on with those lots right now.”
Construction has not yet begun on the apartment complex and Khoury said he does not know when it would begin.
The new access road should be finished around August. Crews will include some additional turning lanes coming out of Quinlan Crossing.
As part of a long-term plan, a traffic light will also be installed at the intersection of North Quinlan Park Road and the entrance to the Vista Ridge commercial area.
“They probably will not put that in until there’s some development back there,” Khoury said.
