Proper Hospitality has revealed a first look at its upcoming hotel and residences high-rise due to join the Austin skyline in late 2019.
Split into 244 rooms and suites alongside 99 branded residences, the building will also include four dining and drink offerings as well as a spa and fitness centre.
The hotel’s dining options will be led by McGuire Moorman Hospitality, the team behind some of Austin’s most popular eateries, and will include a range of Mediterranean-inspired foods.
There will also be the fifth-floor pool deck typical of Proper’s buildings, which will feature a Mexican restaurant and bar featuring seafood and fajita offerings, as well as a variety of spaces for events.
The space has been designed by Kelly Wearstler who attempted to use the traditional artistry unique to the city throughout rooms and residences.
The hotel’s spa will include a lough, five treatment rooms as well as a 2,000 square-foot fitness facility.
A statement reads: “The historical influence of Austin’s most stately homes inspires eye-catching details, from a sculptural staircase installation of 60 patchworked vintage rugs, to the lobby’s monolithic wood-and-ceramic grandfather clock.
“Local artists and materials feature prominently throughout, with every surface adding textural interest: pots, trays and cabinet inlay tiles by ceramicist Rick Van Dyke; locally quarried travertine on the pool deck; Delta wood panelling; native elmwoods; and antique mirror finishes.”
Proper Hospitality designs, operates and brands high-end hospitality experiences under the Proper Hotels and Residences and Avalon Hotels brands.
The Los Angeles-based company, led by Brad Korzen and Brian De Lowe, debuted their first Proper-branded hotel in San Francisco in 2017.
Santa Monica Proper Hotel is the brand’s second venture and will be followed by properties in Downtown Los Angeles and Austin in the coming months.
