Shopping in the
By STEPHANIE FERGUSON City Editor
Nestled in the trees above the Comal River in the center of town there is a transformation occurring that will provide a “taste” of the town in food, clothing and art.
Right before the San Antonio Street Bridge, a building that has been vacant for years, is being transformed into “a mini mall” that developers are calling TreeTops Plaza.
“It’s going to be a nice place to spend the evening (or the day) and to enjoy the outdoors,” said Greg Wes-ten, who recently purchased the building. “We’re going to be providing for New Braunfels a nice environment for shopping and dining.”
Tire building has been vacant for a number of years after it served as a restaurant. The location also was the site of a doctor’s clinic, built in the 1920s.
Now, Westen and Austin architect Bill Tamminga are rethinking and redesigning the structure which is expected to include two restaurants, a fashion boutique, children’s wear shop, an an gallery that also will serve as a meeting room, and a toiletries shop.
"We're going to be providing for New Braunfels a nice environment for shopping and dining." — Greg Westen
“We’re trying to get something that will not overlap with anything that’s here in town, but will provide sort of a nice environment — an upper scale environment,” Westen said. “Not real -ly an expensive place to be but just sort of a nicer environment than maybe is in any other place in town. We’re trying to be complimentary to all of the businesses thai are here in town and not be competitive. There’s already enough competition in the world.”
While Westen and his wife, Monique plan to run one of the restaurants — the Starlight Grill—he now is in the process of leasing the rest of the space.
He said his restaurant will serve up “good soups and salads” and grilled foods and he is looking for the other

restaurant to “provide a nice environment, a good meal at a reasonable price.”
Westen said the retail shops, depending on when leases arc signed, should be open before Christmas and
the restaurants will probably be ready for business next year.
In the meantime, Westen is preparing to remodel the structure with lots of windows and lights creating an “airy open feeling.”
Work on the outside of the building will include the installation of gas lights, fountains and canopies fen* pleasant outside dining and visiting, he said.
Westen, who is a builder and was
the operator of a restaurant and hotel in Jamaica for five years, refers to the outside arca above the Comal River as a place “where you can just son of sit in the evening, enjoy the out of doors and watch the river run.”
