According to project details submitted March 5, H-E-B could break ground on a 105,689-square-foot store by March 2022, with a possible seven-month buildout. The construction price tag for the Austin area’s 33rd H-E-B is listed at $25.8 million.
In an email to Community Impact Newspaper, H-E-B spokesperson Felicia Pena said the company is looking forward to providing services to those along West Hwy. 290 in the future. She said the project is still in the early stages of development, and no further details are available at this time.
In 2015, H-E-B purchased the 65-acre property, which is currently home to the Nutty Brown Cafe & Amphitheatre, located at 12225 W. Hwy 290, Austin. At the time, the company said plans to develop the property were not imminent, and the amphitheater would be allowed to continue operating at the site.
Nutty Brown Cafe & Amphitheatre owner Mike Farr announced in 2014 plans to build a new $10 million venue in Round Rock. Farr secured land for the new amphitheater in 2018, and construction permits are active through 2021. Concerts and events are still scheduled to take place at the current Southwest Austin location but will transition to the new venue once it opens.
