Zilker Cafe rehab project begins

Wednesday, February 13, 2019 by Tai Moses

Generations of visitors to Zilker Park and Barton Springs have fond memories of buying snacks at Zilker Cafe. Now the beloved concession building is getting a major face lift. Construction on the Zilker Cafe Rehabilitation Project at 2133 William Barton Drive is scheduled to begin this Friday, Feb. 15. The project includes a complete rehab of the midcentury building starting with demolition of much of the exterior, except the masonry facade. The Historic Landmark Commission has approved the design of the new roof and facades that will be part of the restored building, expected to be completed in fall 2019. Portions of the parking lot at William Barton Drive will be closed during construction.
