10/25/19 – We’ve just learned from an article in The Williamson County Sun that the owners of the building have applied for a Special Use Permit for the building as well as a building permit.
Planning and Zoning will consider the Special Use Permit at 6pm on Tuesday November 5th and then it goes to the City Council on Tuesday November 26th. The public may comment during these meetings at 510 West Ninth Street.
The article confirms what the new owners have been saying all along, that they will keep the exterior architecture the same and preserve the historical character of the building.
5/21/19 Update – The Historic Post Office in downtown Georgetown will be getting a whole new life when architect Gary Wang’s visions are completed.
We attended the Breakfast Links at the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce this morning.
Wang Architects of Georgetown gave us some very interesting insights into the vision for the Old Post Office Building.
The area downstairs will be a steak house with an oyster bar and the upstairs will be a ballroom with a dance floor.
There was a question about how they plan to use the basement in this building. Mr Wang wouldn’t say, but it seems there’s more news coming about that.

The Historic Post Office Building is located just across the street from 600 Degrees Pizza at the corner of 8th and Church Streets. Here’s a pic of it as it is today. We don’t have any news about how they plan to change the outside area.
Update 12/8/18 – Georgetown’s Historic Post Office building located across from 600 Degrees will have new owners soon and they are planning to preserve the historic character of the building.
The plan is to turn it into a Steak House and Ballroom with special events, weddings and social gatherings. The opening date could come as soon as late 2019!
