Lantana Place, a mixed-use development located at 7415 Southwest Parkway, Austin, held a ribbon-cutting and grand opening event Jan. 9. The center, which was developed by Stratus Properties, is already home to a number of retail and dining institutions, including Carve American Grille, Lux Rox Boutique and Moviehouse & Eatery.

Several of Lantana Place’s businesses offered refreshments or had a presence at the grand opening soiree—including Carve, Black Rock Coffee Bar and Source Craft Cocktails—and live music was performed by the Josh Weathers Band.

Jon Andrus, the vice president of development for Stratus Properties, spoke at the event and outlined some of the development to come at Lantana Place. According to Andrus, the existing commercial space at Lantana is “about 80% leased.” A boutique Marriot hotel is currently under construction, Andrus said, and should open in around a year.

In the final phase of the project, multifamily housing will be built as well.

“We’re not sure when that’s going to open,” Andrus said, “but that’s what’s coming.”

Gary Farmer, the president of Heritage Title and the chair of Austin Chamber of Commerce and Opportunity Austin, spoke to the effect Lantana Place could have in terms of attracting professionals to the area.

“Quality place is really important, and that comes about by having projects like Lantana Place, where you can have this type of setting where families can come to shop, to dine, to be entertained, to hang out. It is a very big net positive for Austin,” Farmer said.

Lights are continuing to come on at various storefronts in Lantana Place, including Black Rock Coffee Bar, which holds its official opening Jan. 10.
