Hutto approves agreement with Titan Development to build large-scale business park

On April 13, Hutto City Council approved an agreement with Titan Development to build Hutto’s first large-scale business park, a major step towards becoming one of the most competitive locations for businesses in the Greater Austin Region. The development process is set to start immediately, beginning the first phase of a 2.5 million sq. ft. business park. The first phase will be approximately 800,000 to 1 million sq. ft. of space. The project will begin with a minimum of 100,000 sq. ft. building.

“When Council first hired the city manager, they wanted someone with experience in growing economies,” Mayor Doug Gaul said. “And we believe it is development like this that will bring the needed growth to Hutto to begin stabilizing the economy.”

This brings to Hutto a new market place, with the appropriate space to compete for new businesses, and diversifying the economy by allowing for a wide variety of industries.

“I want to focus on incubating local businesses and contractors,” City Manager Odis Jones said. “Hutto is becoming a pro-business town, and it’s important for the community to know that we are not only focused on bringing new businesses in, we want to help our own businesses grow and flourish right here in Hutto.”

The project is anticipated to begin later this year.

 “Hutto is an ideal location for a business park of this size,” Darin Manning, director of Development at Titan Development, said. “The connectivity to the Austin marketplace is ideal for businesses – the air traffic space, rail system and highway locations are key to economic development and growth not only for the City, but for the businesses that decide to call Hutto home.”

Titan Development is a multifaceted large-scale developer with manufacturing and warehouse successes in locations such as Schertz, New Braunfels, Selma, Texas and Albuquerque, New Mexico.

“What impressed us the most in working with the municipality of Hutto, was its foresight and ability to create their own economic development through creating a business park like this,” Kevin Reed, Chairman of the Board for Titan Development, said. “We’ve done economic development around the country, but its rare to find a public/private partnership that can see into the future and control their own destiny – this will benefit the future of Hutto.”

A business park of this size has never been completed before in Hutto. The Economic Development Corporation has received 110 inquiries for industrial space that totals over 11 million sq. ft. of space, which the Hutto EDC has not been able to provide to businesses in the past.

 “Infrastructure drives growth,” Jones said. “This is huge for the marketplace, and it shows that Hutto is open for business.”

While the City will cover the cost of the infrastructure, the Economic Development Corporation of Hutto will work directly with Titan Development to manage the marketing and future negotiations with future tenants and end-users.

The City will be responsible for providing sewer and water to the site. Some property will still need to be annexed, and a pre-annexation agreement exists.

“Thank you to all of the partners involved: Hutto ISD, EDC, ESD, Titan Development, the Schneider family and more for making this a possibility for Hutto,” Jones said.
