Bee Cave (Travis County) — The developer for the long planned Village at Spanish Oaks received a public improvement district (PID) to fund $25 million in improvements, during a recent meeting of the City Council.
The PID is expected to include a $17 million off-street parking garage, landscaping, sidewalks, right-of-ways, pedestrian malls, art piece installations, associated water improvements, along with maintenance costs.
Located between Texas Highway 71 and Little Barton Creek, the village will be built in phases over several years.
The first phase is expected to take 18 months and begin in late 2023 or early 2024.

Jack Creveling, director of development at Spanish Oaks, told the council that the design for the project had matured, but was still in its initial stages.
VBX reported inJune of 2020 that an infrastructure plan had been approved for the 80-acre mixed-use project.
The mixed-use development is proposing to comprise boutique retail shops, restaurants, service-oriented retail, office space, a spa, a mix of residential housing units and parking structures.
Arizona-based Greenbrier Southwest is partnering with CCNG Real Estate Investors II, LP on the project.
The overall project team includes San Antonio’s Overland Partners as the lead architect and the Austin-centered landscape architect Pharis Design, along with civil engineers LJA Engineering.
