Hill Country Galleria

As more people continue to move to Austin, the Hill Country is quickly becoming a hot spot landing spot for families looking for more space and great schools. Many commercial developments are coming to follow suit. The Hill Country Galleria is a shopping & dining destination, but also a cultural one for events, live music and community gatherings. 

The Hill Country Galleria paved the way for greater commercial opportunity & diversity in the Hill Country over 10 years ago. Before the opening of The Galleria, the Bee Cave and surrounding areas had little to no options when it came to retail and dining. Now as the area continues to explode with new planned residential communities we’re seeing an increase in demand for office space as traffic continues to become a more top of mind issue for commuters. 

Steiner Ranch and Lakeway

Sprawling communities and bustling new city centers to help define and distinguish the area

Located just south of Lake Travis, Steiner Ranch is just a 10 mile drive to downtown Austin. Despite its close proximity to the capital city, residents enjoy the peace and solitude that only the natural surroundings of the area can provide. In terms of Commercial space, while office space is limited until you get closer to 360/Westlake area or more north on 2222, retail is booming and developers are working on building space to meet the increasing demand for space, including a new neighborhood center, Palo Verde at Steiner– a mixed-use development that will deliver an elevated retail and dining experience to the community. 

SHOOT ME STRAIGHT

It’s definitely a bit of a hike to get out to the heart of Lakeway and Steiner Ranch, but for those looking for a strong sense of community and family-driven activities, this is the place to set up shop. The scenery, quality of schools and booming economic grow all contribute to making this area a uniquely exciting opportunity for business owners looking to tap particular demographics of families and multi-generational communities. 

THE MARKET

New centers and office are continuing to be planned and delivered over the next decade

With Lake Travis presenting a limiting geographic factor of continued growth to the West, the area still has a lot of potential. The planned developments and recent growth are all positive contributions to the market. While not as substantial to the changes happening on the Eastside of town, the opportunities that present themself in the heart of the Hill Country are still exciting.
