Crestview Station Residential is a 32-acre residential development located within the Lamar Blvd/Justin Lane Transportation Oriented Development serviced by the MetroRail commuter train. This phased development includes a full array of attached single-family and townhome residences.
Gray Engineering provided the developer – DR Horton – with feasibility studies, preliminary plans, final plats, construction drawings and site grading plans for multiple phases of development. The project also required competent expertise, provided by Gray, for multiple easement vacations, license agreements and dry utility design coordination. Design criteria for the lots and streets required very close coordination to accommodate utilities within this very dense development.
Fort Dessau is a DR Horton Mixed Use Master Planned Community with 167 single family lots and 186 multi-family units located along Dessau Road within the City of Austin. The development site encompasses the Historical Dessau Fort located on a central hill top within the development. Gray Engineering prepared all preliminary and site development plans for the overall project. Special design considerations were required due to the historical fort, several jurisdictional waterways bisecting the site as well as established wetlands habitat. In addition to all on-site grading, utility and drainage design Gray Engineering designed off-site water extensions as well as designing and overseeing the construction of a large regional wastewater lift station for the City of Austin to serve the development and surrounding communities.

This infill project consists of 27 low-rise condominium units on a 2 acre tract of land. Gray Engineering prepared all site development plans including a very complex drainage system requiring extensive coordination with the state transportation agency and other impacted parties. This small site required close coordination with the project architects and owners to accommodate the development needs and still fully meet the City of Austin Development Code requirements for impervious cover and tree protection.
