Austin American-Statesman Sunday - - BUSINESS SUNDAY - Gary Dinges

The Hill Coun­try Gal­le­ria con­tin­ues to beef up its ten­ant ros­ter.

The Bee Cave devel­op­ment, which re­cently added an H&M store as part of a mul­ti­mil­lion-dol­lar makeover, will see sev­eral new stores and restau­rants open their doors in the com­ing weeks and months.

By fall, ex­pect to see these ad­di­tions:

■ A pop-up shop from ath­letic wear chain Lu­l­ule­mon. ■ Treda­gain, which sells footwear made of reused tires. ■A Goga Goat Yoga stu­dio. ■ Lo­cally owned women’s life­style bou­tique Lanai.

■ Flip’N Art Gallery fea­tur­ing “happy art, happy walls and happy prices” from Austin artist Cha­casso.

■A Salt­grass Steak House restau­rant.

Two sea­sonal re­tail­ers have signed on, as well: Springfree

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.
