Real estate trend: Circle C Ranch sees increase in restaurant closings at Slaughter Lane commercial development

North By Northwest closed its Circle C Ranch location this spring.

North By Northwest closed its Circle C Ranch location this spring.

Over the past six months, several restaurants have closed in Parkside Village, a commercial development in the Circle C Ranch area located at 5701 W. Slaughter Lane, Austin.

The closing announcements kicked off with North by Northwest brewery, which shuttered its South Austin location in early February. The closing announcement from the brewery, which still operates a location in Northwest Austin, stated the business closed due to ongoing construction taking place at the Slaughter Lane and MoPac intersection.

BurgerFi, a Florida-based burger restaurant, announced in a Facebook post its Austin location would be “temporarily closed,” but it has yet to reopen. The Circle C location has been removed from the company’s official website.

California-based chain Zpizza and national chain Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf both closed their stores in the development this April.

Whitestone Reit, the leasing agency for Parkside Village, has not confirmed if there are plans in place for the vacancies.

Parkside Village is home to a range of other businesses, including Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, a TCBY frozen yogurt store and a Signature Care Emergency Center.
