A concept presentation from Supernature Studios to Planning and Zoning last week may lead to a huge deveopment at the intersection of 620 and Bee Cave Parkway producing movies and network TV shows.
HCG developer Christopher Milam showed P&Z plans to build $100-million studio in Bee Cave. Local filmmaker Robert Rodriguez had planned to build on the lot at 13500 Bee Cave Parkway but ended up at the Airport so Milam bought the land.
The site would stretch 3,000 feet with a 6/7-foot tall stone wall, and the back portion of the land looks out on Balcones Canyonland Preserve.
Features would include:
- Six buildings with 95,000 square feet of motion picture and network television sound stages.
- Five entrances to the site with two manned gates.
- 750,000 square feet total build out, with 576,680 square feet of Class A office space.
- 55 percent impervious cover restriction.
- 20,000-square-foot onsite mill with woodworking, steel production for stage builds
Total cost for the project would exceed $100 million and could be completed within 18 months. There is no appropriate zoning in Bee Cave according to councilwoman Zelda Auslander.
