Plans show Black Rock Coffee Bar, Whataburger could be coming to Smyers Lane retail center at RM 620 in Round Rock

Black Rock Coffee Bar, a national chain coffee bar and roastery, is among the newest tenants to sign a lease within the Point at 620, a retail center under construction at Smyers Lane and RM 620 in Round Rock.

According to plans dated Aug. 28, Black Rock will be located next to ATI Physical Therapy, a rehabilitation-focused physical therapy provider. This would be ATI’s second Round Rock location, with the first at 2250 E. Palm Valley Blvd., Ste. 205, according to the business’s website.

Plans for the Point at 620 also indicate a Whataburger is under lease negotiations at this time.

Signed leases to date include a yet-to-be named optometrist, Firestone Complete Auto Care, Wendy’s and Popeyes, according to the site plan.

Permits for Wendy’s and Firestone have been approved, and the businesses are awaiting clearance for construction, according to Bradley Dushkin, Round Rock’s assistant director of planning and development services. Construction on the chain hamburger restaurant and the car maintenance and repair shop hinges on larger site improvements such as driveways, water and wastewater services, Dushkin said.

Popeye’s is permitted and the city has received the chain chicken restaurant’s pre-construction package, Duskin said.

“If all goes smoothly, they could be underway within a week or two,” Dushkin said in a Sept. 9 email to Community Impact Newspaper.

According to the Aug. 28 site map, Raising Canes and a yet-to-be-named daycare center have signed letters of intent to lease space at the site. A letter of intent is a non-binding document used to engage business terms of a lease or a sale.

Dushkin said the city has not yet received permit applications for Raising Canes, a daycare or Whataburger.

Goodwill Central Texas opened a location within the development at 17151 Smyers Lane, Round Rock, in June. The business specializes in thrift clothing and home goods, and it functions as a donation center for used items.

Earlier plans for the development included proposals for Hat Creek Burger Co. and Chick-fil-A. The restaurants did not confirm their intentions to Community Impact Newspaper and have not filed permits with the city at this time.
