Entertainment center, pet hotel, 3 eateries coming to Oak Hill Plaza


Tenants are lining up to lease space in a newly renovated shopping center in the Oak Hill area.

BBD Commercial gave Oak Hill Plaza, at 7101 W. Texas 71, a substantial makeover that included a new façade, fresh paint, a copper mansard roof, improved signage and landscaping and a repaved, restriped parking lot.

That investment appears to be paying off, with five new businesses set to move in over the next several months. With their arrival, BBD Commercial said Oak Hill Plaza is now 90 percent occupied.

The newcomers are Pluckers Wing Bar, Slab BBQ, EurAsia Sushi Bar and Seafood, D Pet Hotels and Epic Fun, a family entertainment center.

“We’re thrilled about our new tenants at Oak Hill Plaza,” BBD Commercial’s Tim Jarvis said. “We feel we have an excellent mix of restaurants and community-focused businesses. We renovated the facility and signed these tenants with the neighborhood in mind, and we think each of these establishments will be a great fit for the Southwest Austin community.”

Epic Fun is, by far, the largest addition, taking over a 27,000-square-foot spot vacated by Big Lots. When it debuts this summer, it will feature an arcade, laser tag arena, climbing wall, ropes course and mini-bowling. There will also be a bar and restaurant.

The team behind Epic Fun said it chose Oak Hill Plaza because it’s “clean, modern and inviting.”

D Pet Hotels, a chain with several locations across the U.S., expects to open in April, offering a luxury pet-boarding experience.

“We’re a young, hip company and we want to be somewhere that the energy is young and hip, too,” said Liza De La Chapa with D Pet Hotels.

BBD Commercial said it will “selectively target a handful of businesses the company believes would serve the community and shopping center well” as it looks to fill remaining storefronts.
