Description: This master-planned community is located 14 miles east of Austin, the state capitol of Texas. The community is planned for 3,000 homes; a 50-acre commercial/retail center; a new elementary school opening in 2015; over 200 acres of native woodlands; nearly seven miles of nature trails; 36 acres of public parks; and 23 acres of sports fields. It also offers a four-acre water park featuring three pools and a 4,300-square-foot recreation and fitness center. Adjacent to the community is the 18-hole ShadowGlen Golf Course that was designed by Bechtol Russell Golf Design. The course also features a golf clubhouse offering a pro shop and restaurant.

ShadowGlen is located at the terminus of the Manor Expressway, an under-construction, $430-million toll road that leads from the master-planned community to the highways that provide access to Austin and other job nodes north of the city. The Expressway is scheduled for completion in 2014.
