02 Aug Downtown Development Digest | Hotel ZaZa and Gables Residences
The New Hotel ZaZa will be approximately 24 stories and include hotel rooms and some residences. This boutique hotel is a member of the Hotel ZaZa family, a group of luxury hotels you will only find in Texas. This new building, found at 401 Guadalupe Street, is set to open Summer of 2019. The hotel will go up to the 12th floor, with 160 rooms, and the 13th floor and beyond will be residences, 215 luxury apartments to be specific. The hotel will be considered a Austin Energy Green Building, with a two-star rating, thanks to energy-efficient appliances and other “green” features. The ground floor of Hotel ZaZa will have a fun bar area and a “Za Spa,” open to residents as well as the public. The residences will include a fitness center, a library, a pool and hot-tub, and an outdoor fireplace and lounge. There will be two pool decks, one for the residences and one for the hotel. Both decks and many other amenities on the site will have views of Republic Square Park and the downtown skyline. The residences will begin leasing late Summer 2018, with an opening date the following year. The lot at West Fourth and Guadalupe will add some incredible real estate to the downtown Austin experience.
