Hill Country Galleria–Business is on the rise and retail space is at 96% occupancy

After 2 1/2 years, the Hill Country Galleria is on the rise and is almost to full occupancy.  The galleria has come a long way since 2010 when it was only at 60% occupancy.  Since being purchased out of bankruptcy in 2010, The Hill Country Galleria has steadily gained momentum in both sales and occupancy.   The amount of sales tax that is produced by the galleria has increased each year.  In 2011 the amount of sales tax that was generated by the shopping center was 1.63 million dollars.  Whole Foods (35,000 square-feet) has added a significant amount of business to the Mall since its opening on June 19th, 2012.   Some shoppers have even stated that the retail shops have a European flare to them.  Retail store owners were interviewed and overall are pleased with the increase in amount of business this year.

Future Plans: There are plans to add additional office facilities.  Plans are currently going through the city for final approval.  The owners are also interested in adding additional entrances to the mall, one of the entrances would allow patrons to enter the galleria off of RR 620.

The Hill Country Galleria  encourages community interaction and frequently hosts events for the public.  Take a look at their outdoor music schedule every Saturday 7-9PM!
