Hill Country Galleria adds new shops, restaurants
The Hill Country Galleria continues to beef up its tenant roster.

Trampoline and Spirit Halloween, which sells an assortment of costumes and decorations.
More choices at the Domain
Several new retailers are also on the way to the Domain in North Austin. They include: ■ COS, a European brand, offers “wardrobe essentials” for men and women. ■ F45 Training offers a 45-minute, high-intensity circuit workout. ■ Maje sells clothing and accessories for women. ■ Invisalign straightens teeth without the need for braces.
Sandro’s, a Parisian fashion house, specializes in clothing for both men and women.
Austin-based jeweler Kendra Scott has relocated to a larger spot adjacent to the previous location.
Louis Vuitton is in temporary quarters while a remodeling and expansion projects is underway that will add 1,000 square feet to the store.
Another High 5 coming
High 5, an entertainment venue featuring bowling lanes, karaoke and arcade games, is branching out, with plans for a location in North Austin.
The first High 5 is in Lakeway. It will be joined this November by a second location at 2700 W. Anderson Lane, former site of the Goodnight.
“Our focus is on showcasing a place where Austinites can go for an entertainment experience,” said Jennifer Emley, who co-owns High 5 with her husband Scott. “From games to the vintage bowling lanes to the customized mural to the food and drinks we feature on our menu, we are thrilled to be a part of Central Austin.”
High 5 features a full food menu, as well as a bar. There will also be space set aside for private events.
Mall adds new play area
Kiddos don’t like to shop? Round Rock Premium Outlets has a solution.
The center has added a new Texas-themed playground that will officially open Oct. 6.
Located near the Disney Store, Auntie Anne’s Pretzels and Rue 21, the 3,000-square-foot play area is made of a soft-rubber, anti-bacterial material. It features slides and climbers, plus a cowboy boot, cowboy hat, armadillo and longhorn designed specifically for children under 42 inches tall.
There are plenty of benches for parents, as well.
“We are very excited to announce this valued amenity at Round Rock Premium Outlets,” said Rachel Imbriale, the center’s director of marketing and business development. “The new children’s play area is just one way to show that everything is bigger in Texas including this new play area and the way we enhance the shopping experience for parents and children alike.”
Filling center’s vacancies
Owners of the Crescent have tapped Weitzman to help fill the North Austin shopping center.
Anchored by 99 Ranch Market, the 116,000-square-foot strip mall is at Airport and North Lamar boulevards. Other tenants include 85°C Bakery Café, a Konokuniya USA bookstore and Kura Revolving Sushi Bar.
Weitzman’s Britt Morrison, Brett Maze and Cameron Longmire are handling the project.
“The Crescent’s location and access from two major thoroughfares, as well as its unique tenant mix, make it a true shopping destination for the trade area,” Morrison said. “The center’s location allows the tenant mix to serve North Central Austin, as well as a large daytime population in businesses and institutions such as the Austin Community College’s Highland Campus.”
Spaces available range in size from 7,464 square feet in a freestanding building to a 750-squarefoot inline storefront.
