Hooters site — once owned by ‘Peanuts creator’ — might get high-rise


A developer wants to build a mixed-use tower on piece of property just south of downtown Austin that was once owned by the creator of the “Peanuts” comic strip.

Stream Realty Partners wants to build the high-rise on a 1.4 acre site that once was owned by the late Charles Schulz, creator of “Peanuts.” The triangular tract is currently home to a Hooters restaurant and a parking lot.

Richard Suttle Jr., an Austin attorney for Stream Realty Partners, is asking the city of Austin for a zoning change to build the project.
