The best

Proposals are now under consideration by the Austin City Council regarding how to redevelop the City’s Seaholm water treatment plant–due to be decommissioned and moved in 2009.

Of the several proposals submitted, my favorite (and that of the Austinist as well) is the proposal put forth by Stratus Properties, which would feature an HEB as part of the mixed-use development.

The Whole Foods headquarters is great, but I’ve found that my family uses it more for a fun downtown eatery or for the ice-skating at Christmas than for actual grocery shopping. Now, an HEB on the other hand, would be a great place to pick up some groceries on the way home from work to save my wife the trouble.

Thx to the Austinist
