New tenant headed to City Hall

Monday, March 29, 2021 by Elizabeth Pagano

With vaccination rates rising, most Austinites are anticipating a return to normal life in the near future. For our readers (and for us!) that might include a return to City Hall after more than a year away, and obviously, things have not stood still for the past year. Since we have been gone, Austin Java has left its City Hall space. A March 23 memo from the Office of Real Estate Services explains that a mysterious new tenant is on the way and ready for City Council consideration this June. From the memo, here are your clues. Guess accordingly: “The proposed tenant use would be an upscale convenience store, coffee shop and café with in-store and patio seating. Terms with the tenant will be negotiated to be in-line with the market norms of the City’s 2nd Street District.”
