Barshop & Oles
Barshop & Oles Company has played a prominent role in Central and South Texas real estate development over the last two decades. The Company was created in 1995 when two market leaders, C.P. Oles Company of Austin and Barshop Enterprises, Inc. of San Antonio, combined their operations. C.P. Oles Company had been involved in several high-profile Austin real estate projects with its emphasis in neighborhood and specialty retail management and development including the highly acclaimed Central Park and Arboretum Market. Barshop Enterprises, Inc. had been a leader in the San Antonio industrial market since 1980 and managed a broad portfolio of industrial, retail and master-planned land developments. The Company now offers an impressive knowledge of both of these vibrant markets.
Today, Barshop & Oles is actively involved in over 2.5 million square feet of retail, industrial and mixed-used developments. The Company also offers fee management, marketing and leasing services to a select number of third party clients. Barshop & Oles' executive team combines extensive contacts with national, regional and local tenants along with considerable expertise in the development and acquisition of prime properties. With active developments underway in Austin and San Antonio, Barshop & Oles continues to seek new development and leasing/management opportunities throughout Texas and the Southwest.
University Commons is a regional community shopping center located at an intersection that has emerged as one of the most dynamic retail areas in the Austin MSA.

Anchored by a 123,000 square foot HEB Grocery Store that opened in the fall of 2013, the center enjoys excellent access to each of the surrounding developments at the intersection, including the Round Rock Premium Outlet Mall, the Scott & White Medical Center, and the IKEA anchored power center to the south. Additional retail buildings in the project include such quality tenants as Pei Wei Asian Diner, Starbucks Coffee, Freebirds World Burritos, Mattress Firm, Mimi?s Café and Jamba Juice.
