It appears that Backyard owners Tim O'Connor, his backer John Paul DiJoria (of Paul Mitchell and Patron Tequila fame) are joining with local developer Chris Milam in his plan to bring a movie studio to Bee Cave.
In plans unveiled at Bee Cave P&Z Tuesday night (Jan 22nd) a second lot using the Backyard was shown - to add to the previous plan for The Terrace on Bee Cave Parkway behind the Galleria.
The Live Oak Amphitheater would remain but be joined by a Hotel, restaurants, shops, offices and studio buildings. Two filings are expected from the concept plan.

The Terrace would include a scenic overlook for stopping to view, photograph, and contemplate the amazing canyon-lands preserve primitive to Bee Cave. It would include offices, a few restaurants, and high-end Condos which our area currently has none to offer as an alternative in life-style choices.
There would be very limited surface parking as the Developer is investing in garages instead, including 1 fully underground.
The benefits outweigh any cons, especially when weighed against alternative developers and uses for that land.
With that said, the devil is in the details...it has to look and feel super nice for it to be worthy of being welcome in Bee Cave.
