PROJECT HIGHLIGHT: NORTHLINE – LEANDER’S NEW DOWNTOWN DISTRICT


Northline is Leander, Texas’ new 115-acre downtown district – a unique destination where contemporary design meets the character and charm of Texas Hill Country tradition. From restaurants, retail and residential, to offices, hotels and public gathering spaces, this urban mixed-use community will become the heart and soul of Leander and transform Williamson County. It will provide the City of Leander with a Center, a place to gather, and an identity.


What Is Foresite Group’s Role In The Northline Development? Foresite Group is currently working with Northline Leander Development Company (NLDC) on their new mixed-use development. Foresite Group is providing fiber conduit consulting and design services as well as project management services. Our team worked on placing double the number of conduits that we would normally recommend, in a confined space, as well as providing splice vaults for each conduit through the entire development which also had to be placed in an aesthetic manner so as not to be visible. Our Land Development and Broadband Engineering Practice Areas have been able to work and collaborate more closely than before, and the result is a much more cohesive set of Construction Documents and a much more connected Team.


Level-Up Companies, an affiliated company of Foresite Group, manages and develops all aspects required to develop a wireless facility for a single carrier or multiple carriers. By consolidating Telecom Infrastructure management with the layout and engineering of the facility, Foresite Group / Level-Up Companies (LU) provides NLDC the ability to recognize a revenue stream without having to devote the time or resources typically required to maintain the revenue stream, while protecting the long-term value of the property. We will provide passive and active marketing to carriers along with drafting and processing all contracts and track financials.


We will coordinate with NLDC to establish predetermined design standards to which each carrier’s equipment installation must comply. By properly evaluating the full potential from the beginning, LU can maximize the number of carriers that can install at the facility while maintaining the visual aesthetics of the property. We will ensure best practices are implemented to protect the NLDC’s interests. We provide NLDC the convenience of eliminating the need for resources to guarantee the level of access required by carriers. We help ensure that liability exposure to all parties is minimized through proper planning, engineering and mutually beneficial legal agreements.


Project Features Some features of this fiber and telecom infrastructure include Smart City Applications such as Managed WiFi, Security Camera System, IT Services, Phone Application, Public Music System, Pavilion Technology System.
