Bee Cave City Council took several steps toward the potential development of commercial property on Bee Cave Parkway.

During its Jan. 14 regular meeting, council approved actions that essentially replat what is called the Home Depot addition, or Lot 1, Block C, on 13847 Bee Cave Parkway, as well as allow for construction of public water and wastewater improvements associated with the 23.7-acre tract.

Bee Cave City Manager Clint Garza said the actions taken pertain to land owned by Adrian Overstreet, who also owns other properties in the city, including the Sonesta Bee Cave Austin Hotel adjacent to the Hill Country Galleria.

City documents state the water improvements voted on by council pertain to House Bill 3167, a new state law that went into effect in September governing public improvements for developments.

Garza said council’s Jan. 14 votes lay the groundwork for consideration of a site plan for a new, 50,000-square-foot commercial office development. That site plan has already been submitted to the city by Overstreet, Garza said, adding the city could not take action on that site plan until council made the preliminary approvals.


He added there is not yet a time frame for when the city will take up action on the site plan for the commercial property on Lot 1, Block C.
