Del Webb, a national homebuilder, will develop an additional 1,100 acres at its Sun City Texas active adult community in Georgetown


Some 2,400 new homes will be built mostly on two parcels — one along State Highway 195 and another along Ronald Reagan Boulevard


Infrastructure work is scheduled to begin in early 2015 with construction of the new homes projected to begin next summer


Sun City Texas, which caters to the 55 and older demographic, currently encompasses 4,100 acres with 7,500 home sites and 11,500 residents


The expansion mirrors the population growth throughout the Austin area, according to Brent Baker, vice president of operations for Del Webb in Austin


Del Webb, which handles all of its own building, will introduce 11 new home designs, ranging in size from 1,300 square feet to more than 3,500 square feet. Prices will begin near $190,000


The new areas of development will include 280 acres of open space and a variety of amenities — golf courses, fitness centers, swimming pools, tennis courts, amphitheater, a softball field and community garden
