Lake Travis ISD Breaks Ground On Seventh Elementary School In Rough Hollow. Lake Travis ISD celebrated the start of construction on its seventh elementary school in the master-planned community, Rough Hollow at 4219 Bee Creek Rd., Lakeway, TX. The groundbreaking ceremony was held on April 16, 2019 at the 12-acre school site. The project land, valued at $1.1 million, was donated by Rough Hollow developer, Legend Communities.
“We are honored to be part of this exciting project and to have donated land within the Rough Hollow community to Lake Travis ISD (LTISD) for the development of their seventh elementary school,” said Haythem Dawlett, founder and principal of Legend Communities.
Set within a 1,800-acre neighborhood in the sprawling community of Rough Hollow, the elementary school site features sweeping views of the Texas Hill Country and is easily accessible via Hwy 71. Bartlett Cocke General Contractors is constructing the $29.3 million LTISD Elementary School No.7 that is slated for completion in the Fall of 2020. The elementary school is being developed to meet the high population growth in the Western part of the school district.
“This location was strategically selected because of its accessibility to the members of the Rough Hollow community, Lake Travis and Spicewood residents,” stated Dawlett. “We are very excited to break ground on this outstanding school within Rough Hollow and further our partnership with the LTISD.”
The groundbreaking ceremony included the presentation of colors from local Boy Scout Troop 786, the National Anthem performed by the Lake Travis High School Choir and remarks from notable members of the community such as City of Lakeway Mayor, Sandy Cox; Dr. Brad Lancaster, LTISD Superintendent; Holly Morris-Kuntz, LTISD Deputy Superintendent and Jeremy Self, 2017 LTISD Bond Committee Chair.
The 103,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility is designed by Pflueger Architects and mimics LTISD West Cypress Hills Elementary School that was completed in 2014. The school will accommodate 850 students and boasts common areas that foster group learning and collaboration.
