Bee Cave (Travis County) – An Austin developer had his site development plan approved for office development at a recent city council meeting.
A previous site plan, approved in 2018, expired in March due to lack of work on the site or an extension request, forcing DK Smerlin, LLC, the developer, to reapply.
The scope of the project for Juniper Traces Office remains the same. The concept is a two story office building with a driveway, detention area and 47 parking spaces on one acre lot. Associated infrastructure includes drainage, water quality controls, and other utility improvements.
This lot is located at the end of Juniper Trace, near the Primrose School at 3805 Juniper Trace in the northeast part of town.
The building footprint is 6,527 square feet and the gross floor area of the building is 12,347 square feet.
The height of the structure varies slightly, ranging from 33 feet-6 inches to 35 feet. The roof system was designed to extend beyond the exterior walls to provide a canopy supported by steel bracing.
The building will be constructed with the following elements: stone, stucco, metal and glazing.
The project team consists of companies based in Austin, Engineer Murfee Engineering Company, Inc. and All Star Land Survey, and companies based in Bee Cave Cornerstone Architects and Schoenfelt Engineering, Inc.
