New Hotel at HCG!

Following a very late night, City Council has approved a new hotel at the HCG! The hotel will be located along Bee Cave Parkway, behind Primrose School and Dicks Sporting goods- across from the apartment complex. The hotel will be 5-6 stories, the brand has not been confirmed but is believed to be “Sonesta.” This is good news for the 3 NYSE companies headquartered at the mall.

Covert

In response to rumors that Covert cars were no longer being displayed at the Hill Country Galleria, we reached out to owner’s representative Adrian Overstreet. He told us that “as with all of our tenants, we honored our lease with Covert Cadillac and it has now expired persuant to its terms”. The Galleria came under much criticism for the displayed vehicles – from the dealership group that is developing on Highway 71 amid huge public outcry.

Home Rule Charter for Bee Cave

Bee Cave just established a commission for a home rule charter.  Area growth has highlighted the need to put in place a home rule charter.  Voting on this charter will take place during the next election cycle.  The Home Rule Charter Commission approved the draft City Charter (HERE) on Monday evening and the Council unanimously accepted it last night. Next step is placing it on the ballot in May for voter approval.
