Sadly it's a small and disappointing project for the location. One of the few projects in Austin I'm not excited about.

I agree, I wish this developer would have held off a little bit longer. This site could easily been planned for a 1,000ft skyscraper.

Another East Austin boutique hotel in the works



Quote:
The list of downtown Austin hotel projects in the pipeline continues to grow. Documents filed at the city show that the owner of properties at 1109 and 1113 E. Sixth St. plans a 42-room hotel and a small cafe.

Demolition has begun on existing buildings, which had been sold earlier this summer. The Austin Business Journal recently reported on the transaction in its weekly roundup of real estate transactions, but the buyers were not disclosed.

Property records examined by ABJ show the owner is 1109 East Sixth St LLC, an entity formed by David Kline, a local investor and developer.

Austin developer breaks ground on Domain 7 office tower



Quote:
Endeavor Real Estate Group is moving quickly on the Domain 7 office tower in the Domain mixed-use project in Northwest Austin.

Earlier this summer, the Austin-based developer said that it would start construction this fall of the six-story, 222,000-square-foot Class A office space.

Just a couple of days into the fall season, Endeavor confirmed that construction has started and is projected to be complete by October 2014.

Second Kimber Modern hotel on drawing boards



Quote:
The owners of the Kimber Modern boutique hotel in South Austin are planning a second location on the eastern edge of the Rainey Street neighborhood downtown at 62 and 64 East Ave.

Partners Kimber Cavendish and Vicki Faust are teaming up with contractor Mike Rhodes of Acero Construction to build what will be called “Kimber Modern Rainey.”

About 30 rooms are on the drawing board along with a lobby, bar, restaurant and pool.

Burton Baldridge, principal of Burton Baldridge Architects, is handling the sleek and ultra-modern design.

Seaholm Development Going Condo



Quote:
Downtown Austin's Seaholm development has converted its residential units from 309 apartments to 280 condominiums, according to the website for the project.

The switch could position Seaholm as one of the only projects downtown offering condos in an Austin real estate market that has been starved for condo inventory. If the shift proves successful, it could be an indicator that the financial markets backing developments are returning to prerecession strength.

Whitley Developer Cashing In On Completed Apartment Building



Quote:
Apartment investors will have the opportunity to purchase one of Austin’s newest multifamily communities with the announcement Wednesday that the Whitley at 301 Brazos St. is for sale.

The 16-story downtown project opened in April and is 68 percent leased at prices that are among the highest in the city, in some cases exceeding $3 per square foot.

The Whitley was developed by Austin-based Riverside Resources in a joint venture with Principal Real Estate Investors, an entity formed by Principal Global Investors.

There are now 21 tower cranes over the Austin area. 3 of those cranes will come down soon, and another 5 will be erected before the year ends. Austin could be looking at 25 cranes over the city by December.

Austin’s Coming Hotel Boom One of the Largest in the U.S.

Quote:
Gary Dinges and Shonda Novak, Austin American-Statesman

Oct 06, 2013 7:31 am

During the past decade, downtown Austin ushered in a wave of housing with new condominium and apartment towers. Now, a tide of hotel development is sweeping the central business district that could add more than 3,200 guest rooms during the next three years, a roughly 40 percent increase over the current downtown stock of just more than 8,000.

Those numbers don’t even include the latest announcement, a project proposed by Chicago-based Magellan Development Group that could rise 35 to 50 stories with one or two hotels, plus apartments, at East Fifth and Brazos streets. And about another 1,450 rooms are in the planning stage in other parts of the Austin metro area.

The Austin area hotel market is among the strongest in the nation, making it a magnet for new development, industry experts say. In downtown alone, an occupancy rate of 78 percent explains why room rents are rising and nearly a dozen new hotels are planned or under construction.

“The Austin market continues to be very strong,” Clay said. “Hotel revenues are up over 12 percent year over year, indicating that demand is continuing to rise and the market will likely be able to absorb the new hotel rooms that are under construction.”

On the Way

A look at some of the hotels that have been proposed or are under construction in the Austin area. Under construction or set to begin construction this year:
•Home2 Suites Austin/Cedar Park, 14022 Research Blvd., 83 rooms, opens Oct. 15
•Holiday Inn Express Hotel and Suites/Austin Northwest, 10711 Research Blvd., 110 rooms, Nov. 10
•Residence Inn Austin/University Area, 1200 Barbara Jordan Blvd., 112 rooms, November
•Lone Star Court, 10901 Domain Drive, 123 rooms, fall 2013
•Fairfield Inn and Suites/Austin Northwest, 13087 Research Blvd., 84 rooms, February
•Holiday Inn Austin Airport, 6711 E. Ben White Blvd., 138 rooms, early 2014
•JW Marriott, 110 E. Second St., 1,012 rooms, March 1, 2015
•Holiday Inn Express, East Ninth and Red River streets, 164 rooms, March 2015
•Hotel Indigo, East Ninth and Red River streets, 134 rooms, March 2015
•Westin Austin Downtown, 310 E. Fifth St., 366 rooms, spring 2015
•Sonesta, Hill Country Galleria, 200 rooms, early 2015
•Hotel Van Zandt, 602 Davis St., 322 rooms, early 2015
•Hotel ZaZa, West Fourth and Guadalupe streets, 160 rooms, mid-2015
•Fairmont Austin, East Cesar Chavez and Red River streets, 1,035 rooms, fall 2016

Total rooms: 4,043

Proposed or under development:
