95-acre Manor development could include an H-E-B
A 95-acre, mixed-use project that might feature Manor’s first H-E-B grocery store is in the works.
In mid-June, the city council in the Austin suburb passed financial incentives for the project and approved rezoning for more than 26 acres to accommodate 600 apartments. The property is located at the northwest corner of U.S. Highway 290 and FM 973. It is owned by the Austin-based Butler Family Partnership.
Matt Harriss gave an overview of the project at the council meeting. He is CFO of Butler Family Interests. They handle business and personal affairs for the family of former Austin Mayor Roy Butler. Harriss said H-E-B has a portion of the property under contract and Home Depot has expressed interest in another parcel. H-E-B says it doesn’t have any of the Butler land under contract.
“This is the type of high-end development that will both enhance our citizens’ quality of life by providing much-needed shopping and services, as well as providing increased revenues to the city budget for years to come, so it represents a win-win proposition for the City of Manor,” City Manager Scott Moore says in a news release. The first section of the hub could open in July 2023!
