The Village at Spanish Oaks, the 80-acre multiuse development that will complete the Spanish Oaks subdivision in Bee Cave south of Hwy. 71, has moved forward with another round of infrastructure approvals from Bee Cave City Council.

Specifically, the latest round of advancements came during the June 23 council meeting, during which officials approved on-site easements for the development.

According to city information, council was able to approve the easements because they already approved the development's preliminary plat during an April 28 meeting.

Specifically, the approval involves what are called wastewater interceptor subdivision construction plans, which consist of the construction of an 18-inch wastewater main that will extend west to east across the subject development along the north bank of Little Barton Creek. This main will be owned and maintained by the West Travis County Public Utility Agency, and a city document said the decision from council did not require prior approval from the Bee Cave Planning & Zoning Commission.

During the same meeting, council also approved proposed modifications from the developer of The Village at Spanish Oaks of the Little Barton Creek flood plain.


Acting as an agent for CCNG Real Estate Investors II L.P., a developer for the project, LJA Engineering Inc. stated approval of the flood plain improvements were necessary due to the complexity of the development's final plat and affect the final plat's layout and ability to submit it in a timely manner.

Developers Greenbrier Southwest, in partnership with CCNG Development, first submitted plans for the final extension of the Spanish Oaks subdivision in 2018. Included in the development is room for shops, restaurants, office buildings, an upscale inn and spa as well as a range of residences.
