A historic Central Austin property is going to be transformed into a high-end hotel, the Austin American Statesman reports.
The 10 acre space is called the Commodore Perry Estate and is at 41st and Red River streets. It will become a 53 room boutique hotel from Auberge Resorts Collection.
Construction will start at the beginning of next year and is expected to be complete by the middle of the following year.
The 1920’s mansion that is currently on the property is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and will house four of the hotel’s rooms. The other rooms will be in a new building that will be built elsewhere on the property and will have two stores.
The hotel will also have event space and a restaurant with dishes made from locally sourced ingredients, some grown on the premises.
Two other buildings on the grounds are in bad shape according to the developer and will have to be torn down.
In the next phase, there are plans to add luxury residences that will have access to the same amenities as hotel guests.
