Hotel Going Up Near Austin’s Centro

A Home2 Suites + Hampton Inn is in the works in East Austin. The Austin Business Journal reports Floridays Development is behind the 5-story project on half an acre on E. Seventh Street. The company says it develops lifestyle, branded & independent hotels in a number of markets.

The hotel would include 133 rooms and a 590-square-foot lobby cocktail lounge. The total gross floor area of the hotel is listed as 77,579 square feet. Plans call for the hotel to top out at 60 feet.

There are two homes at 1610 and 1612 E. Seventh that would need to be demolished prior to the start of construction.

Mahoney Engineering is attached as engineer and MPA Architecture is attached as architect.

The location on East Seventh is near the Texas State Cemetery and a little northeast of the most intense development activity seen on the east side, including the new office building, Centro (in photo).
