As both a South Austin real estate broker associate and a resident of The Ridge at Lantana, the new Lantana Place shopping center is a frequent topic of conversation. The new project from Stratus includes a movie theater, a hotel, and a range of shops and services. While both Community Impact and the Austin American-Statesman have done pieces on the development, the information is a bit fragmented elsewhere! Whether you live in the neighborhood or are considering a move, here's the latest on the confirmed tenants. Restaurants and food: Carve American Grill - Carve is a new concept from the creators of Perry's Steakhouse. In a recent press release, they described the concept: "CARVE will feature an innovative menu of ingredient-focused dishes using live fire, smoke, and wood grilling tec...

Not Your Momma's Pimento Cheese - Jack Allen's Kitchen, Austin TexasBeing a resident of Southwest Austin definitely has it perks... lush, green landscaping, greenbelts as far as the eye can see, lakes and rivers with very limited retail development.  The downside of the Southwest living perk is the lack of development.  Well that lasted until.... recently (2006), when the number of commercial space - including dining options have doubled each year.  So anytime we are blessed with a new local restaurant either with my husband, a few girlfriends or by myself.... we or I check out the latest and greatest.  Unfortunately, I wasn't too excited to dine at one of our most recent transplants... Jack Allen's Kitchen.  I'm sure the scrunch in my nose occured because it had been the home to two re...

As a Realtor in central Austin, Lake Travis and Dripping Springs I drive quite a bit. Yesterday while showing property I saw something amazing on Highway 290West. The city of Austin had the street blocked off to traffic on highway 290 heading towards Dripping Springs. If you drive in this area, you know getting into the Scenic Brook neighborhood or Covered Bridge neighborhoods from highway 290 is like playing Russian roulette. There is no light, the street curves a bit and is a little hilly and the oncoming traffic is doing around 60 miles per hour. Did I mention there is no street light, so visibility is very poor at night? The only way to get off of Scenic Brook and onto 290 going east is to jump onto what we used to call the "suicide lane". This is a brief turn lane (about thirty fee...

The big question is why has this very tastefully Austin modern new construction home not sold yet?  The price is right ($399,900).  The view of the west Austin hill country is impossible to beat.  It's in a growth corridor at the Y at Oak Hill and right next to Covered Bridge which is nice.  The home seems very well built, lots of nice features, tastefully appointed kitchens and baths.  Heck, it even has an elevator.  Did I mention the great views?  The challenge with this house isn't the house, it's the lack of other newer construction artist inspired homes in the area.  What's going on with the lots on either side of this house?  Will they be modern?  Will they "fit" when built out or will they be low-rent production houses?  Will they guy across the street fix his garage door?  No on...
