Project in Progress: Opportunity Plaza in San Marcos

Opportunity Plaza San Marcos - April 2023

April 2023 Update:

We are thrilled to share the latest updates on our exciting ground-up construction project in San Marcos, Opportunity Plaza. With the new year in full swing, our construction teams have worked hard and made significant progress. We’re pleased to report that windows, doors, and stunning stone siding have been expertly installed, adding to the overall aesthetic of the building.

Our current focus is on preparing the parking lot for asphalt and creating a beautiful, thoughtfully designed landscape that will enhance the property’s visual appeal. We’re also getting ready to install entryway elevators; excitingly, we’re almost finished with the electrical work.

The Uniqueness of Opportunity Plaza


Opportunity Plaza @ Whisper
Opportunity Boulevard, San Marcos, TX 78666

Opportunity Plaza at Whisper San Marcos lies within an Opportunity Zone. This means the project not only allows for tax cuts but can fund tenant improvements or other capital needs. This location boasts affordability, efficient/attractive finishes, and easy access to Austin, San Marcos, San Antonio, and all the municipalities along the IH-35 corridor.

What is an “Opportunity Zone?”

Created by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, the Opportunity Zones program is a new community development tool that is designed to spur investment in the country’s low-income urban and rural communities through private equity tax incentives. This article explores the program’s background and potential implementation barriers for Texas.

Past Progress Updates

November 2022 Update:

The walls are up at Opportunity Plaza in San Marcos! This three-story building will feature stone siding, ceiling-to-floor window details, and a mezzanine entry. In November, the S. Watts Crew installed windows, roofing, and flooring foundation ahead of concrete pours scheduled for the end of the year. 

The next steps for this master-planned commercial campus  include installing insulation, drywall, and utility infrastructure. 

“We are very excited about the opportunity to partner with MDG to construct the next commercial property in the Whisper Development. It’s helpful to have a client who understands construction and is very involved in the process. Given this property's close proximity to IH-35, it will be visually appealing to people passing by and those entering the Whisper development on the main thoroughfare Opportunity Boulevard. This facility will help contribute to the need for professional office space in the Hays County Region while offering a residential component towards the back of the property.”

August 2022 Update:

The team at S. Watts Group is moving dirt and preparing to lay the foundation for Opportunity Plaza. We are currently constructing the first building while installing all the infrastructure for two additional buildings at Opportunity Plaza in San Marcos.
