The Hub, a food, beverage and entertainment venue, is the first announced tenant at Northline, the 115-acre, mixed-use development in Leander.

The venue will be built in the first development phase of the $715 million project, according to an Oct. 8 release. The Hub's first location is on Hwy. 30A in the Seaside, Florida, area and has an indoor-outdoor entertainment district.

At Northline, the venue will have restaurants, bars, shops, a central lawn, a patio area, an event stage, and a jumbotron with daily and evening events, according to the release.

“The Hub encapsulates everything Northline represents. It's a premium destination where parents can get together for a drink and let their kids run free,” Northline developer and owner Alex Tynberg said in the release. “I had the opportunity to visit the original location, and with a concert on stage and children dancing on the turf, I absolutely loved the vibe. I’m beyond excited to bring this exciting amenity to Leander.”

The Northline project is a 115-acre, mixed-use project in Leander’s transit-oriented development area between US 183 and 183A Toll. Project plans include shopping, dining, housing and a town center and uses $15 million in city-allocated bonds. The project was first introduced in 2017 as a “vibrant, mixed-use town center.”

Construction on the mixed-use development began in March with infrastructure work. Vertical construction is expected to start in 2021, and full build-out is expected to take 10-12 years.

In May, Tynberg told Community Impact Newspaper that the coronavirus pandemic had not affected construction or the project timeline.

Northline will also add medical office space in addition to the planned retail and commercial office space, according to the release.
