Last two spots filled for the upcoming Austin Marketplace

Work has been ongoing to turn the former 52,000 square foot Hy-Vee building in Austin into retail space. Leases for Marshall’s, Pet Supplies Plus and Five Below were recently signed with Verona, Wisconsin based Slaby and Associates, who purchased the building now being called the Austin Marketplace last summer from the Austin Port Authority.  The plans for the project call for five tenants to occupy the revitalized building, and Austin City Administrator Craig Clark gave KAUS News an update on what two businesses recently agreed to fill the two remaining spots…

Clark went on to state that Slaby and Associates will continue to look to fill the remaining retail space on the tract of land known as the Farmer’s Market property adjacent to 18th Avenue, and added that one of the spaces must be occupied by a fast casual dining option…

Clark added that Slaby and Associates are doing a great job helping to keep retail shopping dollars in Austin….

The old Hy-Vee building was sold by the Austin Port Authority for $400,000 in the summer of 2018 to Slaby and Associates, who took control of the building August 1st.  Officials with the City of Austin and Slaby and Associates are hoping that the new businesses will be able to open before the 2019 holiday season.
