BEE CAVE, TRAVIS COUNTY - With plans in the works for major projects in Bee Cave, Lakeway, Hudson Bend and Four Points, a wave of new construction along the RR 620 corridor during 2014 points to continued growth for the region in the coming year.
Below is a snippet of completed and upcoming projects in Bee Cave.
During the past year the City of Bee Cave paved the way for additional development on RR 620.
In March, developer Adrian Overstreet led a groundbreaking ceremony for the city’s first major hotel — Sonesta Bee Cave in the Hill Country Galleria. The 195-room hotel is slated to open in June.
Sister projects Terrace at Bee Cave and The Backyard at Bee Cave were approved to add entertainment venues, movie and television production studios, office buildings, dining, parking garages, residences and hotels to the planned development districts located just off RR 620.
Hill Country Indoor, an 85,000-sf sports facility, will be going forward with construction in 2015.
City Council approved site plans Oct. 28 for the 16.8-acre Park at Bee Cave commercial project. It will offer office, retail, and commercial space beginning in early 2015, developer Bill Walters said.
Phase One of Gateway to Falconhead — an open-air commercial project including office, dining and retail space — was greenlighted in December by Bee Cave City Council.
The site development permit approved for Phase One includes 46,000 sf of retail with the remaining 80,000 sf of office space reserved for Phase 2. Groundbreaking on the development is expected in January.
Three apartment developments added residential space to the city in 2014, beginning with the July opening of the Estates at Bee Cave, a 316-unit apartment complex.
Construction on the 315-unit Cielo Apartment Living was finished in August, and the adjacent 228-unit Madrone Apartment Homes opened its first units in October, with completion slated for March.
