Another hotel has broken ground in downtown Austin, and you will soon see another tower crane pop up on the project site. As we previously reported, the 10-story hotel at 9th & Red River will be a dual-branded Hotel Indigo and Holiday Inn Express. Check out the photos below of the site where a parking garage once stood:
This is the fourth major hotel actively under construction downtown (the JWMarriott, Hotel Van Zandt, and the Westin are the others). Still in the pipeline are the aloft/Element, Hotel ZaZa, and Fairmont hotels which are currently in various stages of development. Existing properties are even scrambling to keep up, as evidenced by the ongoing renovation of the Hilton Austin, Hyatt Regency, and the Four Seasons hotels downtown.
