Bee Cave (Travis County)–A 50,000-square-foot commercial office development is in the works on an undeveloped tract along Bee Cave Parkway.
City Council voted Jan. 14 to approve a replatting of a 23-acre parcel at 13847 Bee Cave Pkwy., near a group of major chain retailers such as Target, CVS and Home Depot between the parkway, Ladera Boulevard and Ranch Road 620.
The council also approved actions permitting infrastructure improvements on the property.
In addition to the on-site infrastructure improvements, the applicant will extend a wastewater force main from a nearby grinder pump station to an existing manhole.
The property, which has been called “the Home Depot addition,” is owned by Hill Country Texas Galleria LLC, a local developer.

Cedar Park-based 360 Professional Services is the civil engineer. Studio 16:19, based in Round Rock, is the landscape architect.
A new east-west road will link the new development to RM 620. The development will also be accessible from Ladera. Additionally, the site also calls for a 50-foot-wide landscape buffer between the development and Bee Cave Parkway.
There’s no estimated construction timeline, budget or delivery method yet available. The site plan and other development plans must still finish going through the city’s review process. VBX members may track this project using ID number: 2020-1474.
Home Depot once owned a larger tract upon which the home improvement retailer built a store, and developed a retail center. The original plat was filed in 2000.
Hill Country Texas Galleria manager Adrian Overstreet owns a few other properties in Bee Cave, including Sonesta Bee Cave Austin Hotel.
