Highland Resources, Inc. Welcomes New Eatery to Lamar Central
Snooze Eatery Announces First Texas Location at Signature Development in Central Austin
Austin, Texas – (April 22, 2015) – Highland Resources, Inc. today welcomed Denver-based restaurant Snooze an A.M. Eatery, to Lamar Central, its signature Class-A, mixed-use development located at 38th Street and N. Lamar Blvd. The lease represents Snooze’s first expansion into Texas and Lamar Central’s first signed restaurant. Of the 34,000 square-feet of available retail space within the development, 3,900 square-feet will be leased by the morning eatery, which will be located adjacent to the breezeway area on the ground floor on 38th Street.
“Snooze is an exciting addition to our development and should complement the other dining options we will offer at Lamar Central,” said Highland Resource VP David Bodenman. “It’s renowned for its breakfast service and creative menu served in a casual, retro-diner atmosphere that we think Austinites will really enjoy.”
The eatery will feature its signature, brightly-colored décor and offer seated and counter-service dining. The space will allow for outdoor seating, including a patio in the front, as well as at the rear of the restaurant, adjoining the 13,000 square-foot courtyard area.
“Lamar Central is a natural fit for Snooze and for our company’s philosophy,” said Snooze CEO David Birzon. “We wanted to be in Texas, and Austin aligns with our environmentally-friendly and fun approach to food and service. Lamar Central is in the heart of the thriving culinary scene in Central Austin, and we can’t wait to share the food that we love with a community that loves food.”
Snooze will offer breakfast classics, such as pancakes and eggs Benedict and will feature a full bar. Its menu will rotate seasonally with an emphasis on responsibly sourced, fresh ingredients to prepare each dish from scratch. The eatery will be open seven days a week, operating between the hours of 6:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 7:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. on weekends. Snooze will open its doors to the public by the fourth quarter of 2015.
Eric DeJernett and Bryan McMurrey of CBRE, Inc. on behalf of Highland Resources and Jeff Townsend of Edge Realty on behalf of Snooze, negotiated the retail lease.
“David and his team bring something new and innovative to the typical breakfast and lunch menu,” said Eric DeJernett, Senior Vice President at CBRE, Inc. “From our initial conversations, we knew the Snooze concept would be welcomed among the food culture here in Austin; it’s a perfect fit for the adjoining medical district, Central Austin neighborhoods and the university population.”
Lamar Central offers high walkability to nearby grocery and retail destinations, and is in close proximity to medical facilities, parks and trails, employment centers and a variety of housing options.
In January, Highland Resources announced anchor tenant Kendra Scott Design will take over the entire fourth floor of the development, as well an additional spot on the ground floor to open its second Austin retail location.
