The center will be renamed the Crescent and receive extensive façade and exterior improvements, parking lot upgrades, a reimagined pylon sign, new monument and directional signage, as well as new landscaping.

Supermarket chain 99 Ranch Market will anchor the project, opening its first Austin location (and fifth in Texas) at the Crescent in early 2017. The California-based supermarket offers fresh produce, meat and seafood, along with Chinese, Korean, Japanese and American specialty grocery items. 99 Ranch Market was established in 1984 and has grown to become one of the largest Asian supermarket chains in the United States, with more than 43 locations in California, Nevada, Texas, New Jersey and Washington State.
