The Crossroads Town Center is Wimberley Texas new 37,500 square foot commercial mixed-use condominium project.
SITE HISTORY

The location for the Crossroads Town Center was part of a 228–acre tract conveyed from Carl and Adelia Scudder to Eagle Rock Corporation in 1952. Eagle Rock Corporation later conveyed the 5.3443–acre site to the Oldham–Cummings VFW Post 6441 in May of 1965. The Oldham–Cummings VFW Post acquired the site for the purpose of hosting its Annual Fourth of July Rodeo.

The Oldham–Cummings VFW Post formerly produced the World's Largest Professional Outdoor Rodeo (www.visitwimberley.com/vfw/rodeo.shtml) with over two thousand contestants participating over a three– to four–day time period with slack running into the early morning hours each day. In 1984 the Texas Department of Transportation and Texas Department of Public Safety notified the Oldham–Cummings VFW Post that they would have to move the rodeo to another location because of traffic congestion and public safety issues. The Post located another site off of Jacobs Well Road and moved to its current location on Jacobs Well Road with an expanded area of 25 acres in 1985. The move was assisted by James H. McCrocklin, a former 16–year Texas A&M University Kingsville Rodeo sponsor and retired Marine Corps Colonel, who purchased that tract as a benefit to the members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the Wimberley community.

After the purchase the old VFW meeting hall was converted and used by several restaurants until the property was zoned by the Village of Wimberley for the city's first PUD in May of 2001.

Developer John McCrocklin engaged Ruth F. Parshall and John C. Patterson of Parshall + Associates Architects to revise the original architectural design concept and site plan of the Crossroads Town Center which consisted of thirteen individual offices without a comprehensive architectural design or motif.

McCrocklin outlined his desire to create a commercial mixed–use project that was patterned after an early Germanic Texana architectural scheme.

Parshall and Patterson initiated research into Wimberley's heritage and studied the historical structures that once comprised Wimberley, founded in 1847, to receive inspiration that ultimately formed the foundation of the Crossroads Town Center Project.

Parshall + Associates designed a creative mixed–use development inspired by historic precedents from the early architecture of Wimberley and the surrounding rural areas.



Research revealed what early Wimberley was like. It was a mix of building types loosely scattered around the area.

Photographs of the Winter House informs many of the designs.

Several of the Crossroads' buildings are based on specific edifices from early photographs—the old Cypress Mill and an old commercial building on the town square, which had buildings on two adjacent sides—the other two sides were not developed.

The Wimberley palette of materials included local limestone, local mortar, wood shingles, steep roofs, corrugated steel roofing, shady covered walkway, storefronts, rugged wood siding was recreated and recombined in interesting ways to recall historic Wimberley.
 





 


 
PROJECT DESCRIPTION AND AMENITIES

The Crossroads Town Center will offer visitors, area residents and business owners 53,840 square feet of commercial mixed–use condominium space, which may be leased or purchased, with 176 parking spaces and full underground utility services from Wimberley Water Supply Corporation (water), AquaTexas (wastewater), Pedernales Electric Cooperative (Electric), Time Warner Cable, and Verizon Southwest Telephone. Fire hydrants will also increase fire protection services and reduce insurance costs for tenants and owners. Crossroads Town Center will be only the second commercial development in the Village of Wimberley to offer full wastewater service for the businesses in the development. The Crossroads Town Center will not experience the current congestion of traffic and lack of parking encountered by business owners and visitors on the Wimberley Square or the anticipated increase that will result when Ranch Road 12 is expanded by the Texas Department of Transportation to three lanes with sidewalks between the Wimberley Square and to the intersection with Ranch Road 3237.

After forty-six years in Wimberley, it was easy for developer John McCrocklin to recognize the needs of the business community for office and retail space. During a recent press release McCrocklin stated, "when I envisioned Crossroads Town Center I realized that there were a lot of individual shop owners that wanted to own and operate their individual spaces rather than lease. The ownership option simply hasn't been available in the past ten years because of a shortage of entitled, zoned and platted, full utility service, ready to build locations in the Village of Wimberley. By creating a commercial condominium association, the option of leasing or owning will become a reality for local business owners. Other benefits that tenants and owners will receive are the inclusion of architectural and engineering as well as construction services. These are something you don't generally find on smaller single purpose buildings. By establishing a condominium association, we can provide these services and benefits to the prospective owners or tenants. I am excited we are going to be able to provide a development with its historically inspired design and scale for the citizens of Wimberley."

The project is conveniently located at the intersection of Ranch Road 12 and Cypress Creek Lane on the northern edge of the Village of Wimberley. The site plans calls for three entry/exits. The main entrance will be on Ranch Road 12 with a secondary access at the intersection of Cypress Creek Lane and Blue Bird Street. A unique project entry feature, a windmill and adjoining cistern that will produce a cascading waterfall, will provide quick and easy identification of the Crossroads Town Center. Ruth Parshall and John Patterson of Parshall + Associates are preparing a complimentary second entry feature landmark for the Cypress Creek Lane/Blue Bird entrance. The third entrance will allow access off of Cypress Creek Lane due west of the Ranch Road 12 entrance. Exterior lighting will be designed to reduce the number of lumens and reduce the encroachment of lighting into adjoining residential area. Outside of the lighting on the individual buildings, the development lighting will be limited to six street lights which will designed as antique lanterns on poles with cross bars. There will be no florescent, halogen or high pressure sodium based exterior lighting on the project. The Crossroads Town Center will be marked by distinctive exterior fencing featuring a three level-stripped cedar fence with abundant native vegetation and trees. John McCrocklin indicated that the design team has labored intensively to save approximately eighty-one (81) of the ninety-three (93) trees on the site to help create a serene business setting.
