Commercial building permits in Kyle perking up again

A burst of residential development as Kyle’s population grew fivefold during the last decade has waned. But 2011 data shows the city has been issuing commercial building permits at a quicker clip.  The city issued 36 commercial building permits in 2011, and total taxable property has also increased from less than $1 billion in fiscal year 2007 to about $1.4 billion in fiscal year 2011.  Of about 75 commercial projects in the works last year, most were in the restaurant and retail trades.  More than 30 businesses opened last year including Panda Express, Little Caesars Pizza and CrossFit Kyle. Among the businesses that reported employment data to the city, 271 full-time jobs were created last year.

In a healthy sign for the Central Texas retail market, Wal-Mart Stores Inc. says it plans to build four new supercenters in the area, with locations in Cedar Park, Manor, Kyle and Elgin.

Each store will be 150,000 square feet and employ about 300 associates, creating about 1,200 jobs, company officials said.  The stores in Kyle, Elgin and Manor will be Wal-Mart’s first entry into those markets. The supercenter planned for Cedar Park would be the second for that area northwest of Austin.

The announcement by the nation’s largest retailer is one of the strongest indications yet that the retail market could be picking up in Central Texas after shoppers reined in spending during the downturn.
