Leander ISD Bond and other school news

I guess the first question I have before I dive into this post is: Where is River Dance in Steiner Ranch? I looked at the map of Steiner Ranch and could not find it.

The Leander ISD Board of Trustees has announced the sites of two additional LISD elementary [...]

Cups and Cones open

Cups and Cones is open. I checked it out real quick today. I like the layout a lot. The layout of the store is an inverted L shape. You walk into the middle of the top of the inverted ‘L’. On the immediate left is a flat screen tv and a tape player for kids to watch movies and play. Further ahead is the counter that serves, coffee, ice cream, and desserts. Further ahead and to the right are nice leather couches to sit on and enjoy your purchases [...]

For people that are not sure what the Galleria is all about. It is a “lifestyle center” with a Cinemark, Dilliard’s, Barnes and Nobles, outdoor amphitheater, and other boutique shopping [...]

Ladera Bend

As you are driving along 2222 towards town, right before the Jester and 2222 light there is some construction going on there which will be the future Ladera Bend. As of right now I only see a Chase Bank as far as retail is concerned, but expect more retail to be announced. There is also some professional office space as well with a parking garage. The retail component will be a 2-story, stone & brick masonry structure and will have a [...]
