Several developments are either in the works or nearly complete in the Lake Travis-Westlake area.

Longleaf at Bee Cave

A site plan and water-quality plan for a proposed assisted-living center in Bee Cave’s Town Center district have been approved by City Council.

During the Jan. 14 regular meeting, Bee Cave City Council approved a conditional-use permit for the proposed Longleaf at Bee Cave assisted-living facility, which will be an 88-unit development within a single two- and three-story building totaling 70,000 square feet located on a 3.57-acre tract at 3936 RM 620.

Council approved the permit on several conditions, including that the developer provide approval letters from applicable agencies such as the West Travis County Public Utility Agency and the Texas Department of Transportation.

City Council also approved the development plat for the Rockwood subdivision, which is the 3.57-acre tract of land on which the Longleaf at Bee Cave facility is proposed.

Space: 70,000 square feet

Timeline: TBD

The Paddocks at Bee Creek

The Paddocks at Bee Creek is a business development in the works that will primarily contain medical offices, but its three buildings will also contain room for office and retail establishments.

Tommy Reagan, the president of Bee Creek Stables LP, the company that owns the land, said the project is four years in the making but just now starting to gain momentum.

Of the development’s three buildings, Reagan said Building C should be ready for tenants by the end of February.

One half of the building is leased out, with interest for the other half shown by prospective tenants, Reagan said. He added the other two buildings still need approval from city staff, but the site plan has been approved.

Space: Building C is about 5,500 square feet

Timeline: End of February

Springhill Suites

Springhill Suites is an 88-room hotel located in Lakeway’s medical district. Co-owner Kumal Patel said the hotel will be ready for guests by mid-April, and amenities will include an indoor heated pool and a full workout facility. Patel added another aspect of the hotel making it unique is that every room will be a suite.

Space: 55,000 square feet

Timeline: mid-April planned opening

La Quinta at the Oaks

La Quinta at the Oaks will be a four-story hotel containing 104 rooms. Scott Brown, who represents one of the owners of the hotel, said the target opening for the hotel located at 1943 Medical Drive behind the H-E-B store in Lakeway on RM 620 will either be in late February or early March. Amenities for the hotel include a main venue room, a swimming pool and patio with a fire pit, and a full-size fitness center.

Space: 59,000 square feet

Timeline: opening planned for late February or early March

City Council actions pave way for possible new development on Bee Cave Parkway

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 replat what is called the Home Depot addition, or Lot 1, Block C, on 13847 Bee Cave Parkway, as well as allowing 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.

Space: 50,000 square feet

Timeline: TBD
