White Lodging plans 300-room hotel in downtown Austin

By Shonda Novak | Tuesday, September 11, 2012, 01:51 PM

Less than a month after officially breaking ground on a 1,012-room convention hotel in downtown Austin, White Lodging Services Corp. is seeking a zoning change from the city to build a 300-room upscale hotel a few blocks away.

White Lodging, which is based in Indiana, plans to build the hotel on vacant land at the northeast corner of East Fifth Street and San Jacinto Boulevard. The land, comprising one-fourth of a block, has been owned for about 45 years by Austin lawyer Harry Whittington and other family members, Whittington said.

The hotel brand is expected to be announced soon, White Lodging officials said. The zoning change would allow a project of roughly 230,000 square feet, larger than what’s currently allowed.

Another hotel in the works for downtown Austin

Yet another hotel is in the pipeline for downtown Austin. Documents have been filed with the city of Austin seeking rezoning of a lot at the northeast corner of East Fifth Street and San Jacinto Boulevard.

Current vacancy rates are averaging 78 percent through June 30.

“Typically new hotels are added to a market when the market reaches the upper 60s, so the market can certainly absorb more rooms,” McCaslin said.

Clark Patterson, case manager for the city of Austin’s Planning and Development Review Department, said he hadn’t received the file yet. According to documents obtained by the Austin Business Journal, the joint venture is seeking to enlarge the maximum floor-to-area ratio from 8-to-1 to 13-to-1. In other words, the partnership wants to increase square footage from about 141,312 square feet to 229,632 square feet.

“It would be comparable to the Hyatt Place,” Stephenson said.

The proposed site near the center of the photo (vacant dirt lot).

The site was left vacant after a building on the property was heavily damaged by fire a few years ago.

I emailed the developer yesterday. Here was his response. This is the same guy who got me the heights for the JW Marriott and Hyatt Place Hotels.

Still in early phases of design. Email me back in a few months. The lot is barricaded because we don't have a permit to allow parking.

It's the construction site on the right with the grey crane.
