  A South Congress Mixed-Use Project Builds on the Legacy of Hill’s Cafe JAMES RAMBIN   SEPTEMBER 2, 2021   COMMENT A view of  South Austin  institution Hill’s Cafe and its sign before its 2018 closure. Image:  Thomas Hawk  / Flickr Creative Commons The  2018 closure  of  Hill’s Cafe,  a longtime South Austin staple for chicken fried steaks and live music with roots on South Congress Avenue dating  back to 1947,  served as yet another indicator that the city’s dense development was boldly venturing south of Highway 290, anchored by the nearby St. Elmo district’s  ongoing transformation  from industrial neighborhood to  trendier industrial neighborhood.  But the mixed-use project announced three years ago replacing the cafe atop its sprawling 14-acre property at  4700 South Congress Avenue  ultimately fell through, which ended up being a pretty good deal for the ghost of Hill’s Cafe — an all-new plan for the site by local developers the  Sutton Company  now hopes to bring the restaurant

  August 30, 2021 Hello neighbors,  I hope you all have had a relaxing and healthy summer. It's certainly been an odd one - we were all looking ahead to almost-normal activities this fall, but the Delta variant has changed many of our plans. That being said, we're all learning to operate in this new normal - adjusting plans and trying new things. One of those will be our next membership meeting!
