Details about the “Republic Square Mixed Use” project at 401 Guadalupe (W. 4th Street between Guadalupe and Lavaca) are coming to light, which means the proposed project from Gables Residential and Hotel ZaZa may be getting closer to becoming a reality. The 24-story LEED Silver project is slated to include approximately 226 apartments atop 160 hotel rooms.
According to documents submitted to the City this month, here are some preliminary elevations of the apartment/hotel building:
Earlier this year, the project recieved approval from the Planning Commission despite strong opposition from neighbors who worried that their views would be obstructed by the new building. Gables has six properties near downtown Austin, including Gables Park Tower which is currently under construction. Hotel ZaZa is a boutique hotel with locations is Houston and Dallas.
The project’s site plan is currently under review by the City, and we will post updates as this project gets closer to breaking ground.
