If you’ve driven by the new Oaks at Lakeway development on RR 620, you may have noticed the Main St. sign is ready for business. Well, on one side of the street.
As per the initial development agreement, Glen Heather Drive has been renamed Main Street and this road will serve as the main entrance into the Oaks at Lakeway.
Plus, there’s a new traffic light looming over this soon-to-be busy intersection, which has us traffic-weary locals feeling slightly stressed.
Why Main Street Matters
The unveiling of Main St. is particularly interesting to Lakeway residents due to past discussions about this road cutting all the way through the land (84-acre tract) behind the Oaks at Lakeway.
This is why the proposed Arts District is also important. If Lakeway MUD changes their current permit for that land use, one outcome could be a “back” road from Oaks at Lakeway to Lohmans Crossing (near Village of the Hills entrance), so some residents would never need to use 620 to get to the Oaks.
At the Car Wash
We’re almost 30-days out from the opening of the new HEB, the anchor of the Oaks at Lakeway. Wondering how it looks now?
You can see from the road that this HEB will have its own gas station like the Bee Cave location. It looks like we’ll have something else that’s kinda cool. A car wash! Have you seen that little concrete square structure right next to RR 620? Yep, HEB fueling station with car wash.
We announced HEB Lakeway‘s restaurant plans and opening date last month. Plus, they’re still hiring!
Howdy High 5
If you look beyond the HEB, you can see the buildings that will fill out the Oaks at Lakeway shopping district including Torchy’s Tacos, Mad Greens and High 5 Entertainment.
High 5 is taking shape on the north end of Oaks at Lakeway. Right now it’s a white structure, but hey, that’s pretty exciting. This 2-story bowling alley and laser tag facility, with a 4k square foot arcade, full service restaurant and two bars is expected to be open by the end of the year. We celebrated the groundbreaking ceremony with High 5 owners in June 2015, and got all of the cool details about this fun family-friendly business.
New Preschool Accommodates Growth
We’ve got some amazing preschool options in the Lake Travis area, but with more and more neighborhoods being developed, we can always use more. That’s why it was nice to welcome Little Sunshine’s Playhouse & Preschool to the area.
If you head down Lakeway Boulevard (off RR 620) towards Lohmans Crossing and take a left, you’ll find this charming school (with an adorable outside play area), located next to Lakeway Elementary. Little Sunshine’s celebrated its Grand Opening celebration on September 12 and opened in time for the 2015/2016 school year.
