Downtown Austin is getting [Walton's] Fancy

by jude galligan

While West 6th would become restaurant row, the building located at 609 w 6th, 78701 has been siting idle for the past few years.  Recently, activity has been buzzing.

We’ve seen a construction crew slowly converting this old building into something new.  I’ve heard that the building is owned by Sandra Bullock.  This would make sense considering her successful Bess restaurant is just down the street.  Traviscad lists the property is owned by “PIETANZO VITO TRUSTEE OF THE B” and has it appraised at $624,082.  What’s more interesting to me is what will be opening.

It appears that Downtown Austin is getting a new Walton’s Fancy & Staple.  According to their website…

“Walton’s downtown will include a traditional delicatessen & bakery (for folks on the go), & sidewalk café seating. Our Grand Opening is scheduled for late 2008. We look forward to fulfilling your fanciest floral, gift-giving & event design wishes!”
