Currently, the USTA Texas is headquartered at 8105 Exchange Drive. Cedar Park’s City Council approved a resolution to authorize the agreement.
USTA Texas headquarters will serve as the anchor for this projected $1.5 billion urban oasis development, which will occupy 155 acres at the northwest corner of East Whitestone Boulevard and Sam Bass Road. Upon completion, Indigo Ridge will encompass more than 5 million square feet of retail, dining, urban living, corporate office, hotel, medical, sports and entertainment uses. The tennis campus will consist of approximately 40 outdoor tennis courts, six to eight indoor tennis courts, a stadium court and related amenities for training, development and competitions.
“The USTA is excited to be part of this development and looks forward to working with Indigo Ridge Development Partners to design and develop the facility,” Tom Hunt, president of USTA Texas, said in a prepared statement. The Tennis Center will be owned and operated by USTA Texas.
“With regional employment growth from companies like Dell, Google, Oracle and Emerson, and the massive nearby expansion by Apple, the USTA Tennis Center will be an added draw for future corporate relocations to Indigo Ridge,” added Michael Kennedy of Avison Young Dallas, the broker for the project.
Design firm Gensler created the masterplan for the project, which incorporated outdoor public gathering spaces and multigenerational healthy living communities that complement the USTA program. Construction is estimated to begin in six months and roll out in six phases.
