Central Texas Airport is Proud to Announce the Eco-Merge Green Corporate Centers Development

October 20, 2010



  • Project combines economic growth, job creation, transportation improvement and environmental responsibility
  • Companies already making commitments to locate at the center
  • Private investment will fund development, construction and operating costs
  • Central Texas Airport addresses general-aviation gap dating back 10-plus years

AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 19, 2010 – An ambitious Central Texas development will demonstrate the vast potential of common-sense green technology and planning, while creating much-needed jobs, increasing tax revenue and providing critical general-aviation capacity for the region.

At an event today at the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum, project and public officials said the Eco-Merge Green Corporate Center, located in Bastrop County, will show how commercial development and environmental responsibility should not only coexist, but are best done together.

The 1,500-acre GCC project, near the intersection of FM 1704 and FM 969 about 15 minutes east of Austin, will be home to organizations researching, creating, incubating and producing advanced green technologies.  Companies already committing to operate from the center include:

30 Year Incentive Agreement Signed

Bastrop County commissioners unanimously approved incentives Monday for a proposed $150 million private airport and business complex in the western part of the county.

I feel very comfortable with this agreement.” Dildy said public money will not be used to build the airport and related improvements. Jim Carpenter, managing partner of Central Texas Airport LLC, the would-be developer of the airport, said, “The Central Texas Airport completes the missing infrastructure asset that was needed for Central Texas.” Carpenter began discussions with the county on the project at least a year ago. He said the airport would help fill a need when an …
