Another hotel is going up in Austin, this one in East Austin on the site of a former Goodwill store, the Austin Business Journal reports.
Called Arrive, the hotel will have 5 stories and 83 rooms and will encompass 58,600 square feet of hotel including event space, two restaurants, and a coffee shop. One thing the hotel won’t have is a lobby. Guests will check in at the bar. The hotel is expected to cost $17.4 million to build and when completed in Spring 2019, rooms will start at $199 per night.
The Arrive hotel’s only other outpost is in Palm Springs, California and the Austin location will be designed by Burton Baldridge, an Austin architect. Other Austin companies involved include Alexa Management, Big Red Dog, Dwg. landscape architects, and EyeLikeDesign.
The hotel will have 140 employees and will also include part of a 100-year-old warehouse that currently occupies the plot of land. The developers customize their hotels to the surrounding neighborhood and hope to become a destination for locals as well as travelers.
