A new multi-use project in downtown Georgetown is transforming Austin’s neighbor to the north, and a former NFL player is to thank, the Austin Business Journal reports.
The 32 acre, $225 million development is called the Summit at Rivery Park and is near the county courthouse and overlooks the San Gabriel River. Phase 2 includes offices plus 60,000 square feet of retail on the ground floor and is completed. Woops bakery is already open, and Orangetheory Fitness will open soon. Spa Luxe will be open to the public early next year. Four restaurants are also part of this phase, including BB’s Home Cooking.
The third phase, which will complete the project, will have more ground-floor retail and urban lofts and will break ground soon.
The first phase of the project began in 2015 with 114 single-family homes and 223 apartments and a Sheraton Hotel. The homes are called the Texas Brownstones and the apartment community is called the Rivery Park Luxury Apartment Homes. The former NFL player turned developer, Jeff Novak, was finally able to get the project off the ground after years of failure by others.
