Bee Cave (Hays County)–An 88-unit assisted-living and memory care facility will be built in a 70,200-square-foot, two- and three-story building.
City Council voted Jan. 14 to approve a conditional use permit for Longleaf at Bee Cave on a 3.56-acre tract at 3936 South Ranch Road 620.
The new building will have a pitched standing seam metal roof and one courtyard each for the assisted-living and memory care sections.
There will be 42 surface parking spaces and a 4-foot-wide pedestrian connection to the nearby Park at Bee Cave development.

Braemar Partners, based in Marietta, Georgia, is the developer. Austin-based Malone/Wheeler is the engineering firm. Atlanta firm Niles Bolton Associates is handling the architectural design.
Conceptual elevations show exterior materials featuring stained wood columns and rafters, adhered limestone veneer, fiber cement board and batten, and three-coat stucco.
