The wait is over, in a sense, for one of the most anticipated luxury hotels and residential spaces to grace Austin's skyline.
The 32-story tower, located at 600 W. Second St., will offer 244 hotel rooms and suites and 99 luxury residences for sale. It boasts two swimming pools overlooking Lady Bird Lake (one for hotel guests, one reserved for residents); a full-service spa and fitness center; and close to 10,000 square feet of meeting space. Hotel rates start at $350 a night.
Looking to stay a lot longer? Austin Proper will offer one- to three-bedroom residences ranging from 921 square feet to 2,608 square feet. One- and two-story penthouses (ranging from 3,425 square feet to 6,789 square feet) will also be available in the uppermost floors. Residents will begin moving in this winter, a representative tells CultureMap, noting that approximately 20 units are still available.
It's been almost four years since the Los Angeles-based brand revealed it would build its first property outside California. Celebrity interior designer Kelly Wearstler oversaw design for the project, which was "influenced by [Austin's] historic, articulate Craftsman style homes and pays homage to art nouveau and arts and crafts motifs, joinery techniques, textures, and materials," according to a release.
The extravagant space also will boast multiple dining concepts, including a Mediterranean-inspired grill, coffee shop, two cocktail bars, and a poolside Mexican eatery — all executed by local firm McGuire Moorman Hospitality.
