Construction on The Village at Spanish Oaks—an 80-acre, multiuse development that will complete the Spanish Oaks subdivision in Bee Cave south of Hwy. 71—is scheduled to begin this fall, according to city Planning Director Megan Will.

“The next step is commencing sitewide infrastructure construction (roads, utilities, regional stormwater),” Will told Community Impact Newspaper in an email.

Developers Greenbrier Southwest, in partnership with CCNG Development, first submitted plans for The Village at Spanish Oaks in 2018 that included room for shops, restaurants, office buildings, a swim club, an upscale inn and a spa as well as a range of residences.

On Aug. 17, developer submitted a final plat, which specifically breaks down how a parcel will be developed. On Sept. 22, Bee Cave City Council held a public hearing and approved the final plat.

The final plat is divided into 17 parcels that contain differing degrees of development. Ten of the parcels will contain various mixed-use combinations. A total of1,190 housing units will be spread among 12 parcels that will range in density from 30 single-family homes to 590 multifamily residential units.

Recreation amenities will include a swim club, trails and open spaces, according to the plat.
A condition of approval included the developer proving it had the ability to fund almost $9 million in required infrastructure improvements that included improvements to water and wastewater lines, a wastewater line relocation and drainage improvements.


The development is expected to be built out in seven to 10 years.

By the numbers

Here are some highlights from the agreement between the city of Bee Cave and developers of the 80-acre Village at Spanish Oaks:

  • 30 single-family homes

  • 100-room hotel

  • 275 senior living units

  • 315 townhomes

  • 550 multifamily residential units
