Veramendi

The City of New Braunfels is about to get a lot bigger thanks to last week's city council approval of a master-planned community moving in over the next decade.

The project that will be known as Veramendi exists today as a 2,400-acre private ranch that remains as just about the only undeveloped land on Loop 337 between Hwy. 46 and the Guadalupe River. There’s only one driveway into the property off the Loop, which is just down the road from New Braunfels High School.
