Boutique Hotel Coming To East 6th & Chicon (RENDERINGS)
A new 83-room boutique hotel is coming to 6th & Chicon in the heart of East Austin. The newest location of the ARRIVE Hotel brand will be built across the street from Whisler’s and Lazarus Brewing, and will also add 2 restaurants, a coffee shop, and additional retail space as part of the project.
ARRIVE Enterprises LLC has been working on the project since 2015, and has teamed up with Austin-based Alexa Management to bring the project to life on the former site of the Goodwill Career & Technical Academy. The first location of ARRIVE is located in Palm Springs, and another location is in the works for the LA area.
Local firm Baldridge Architects is providing architectural services for the swanky new hotel, and a page for an “Untitled Hotel” on their website reveals the intriguing design that includes a concrete structure and “cantilevered, undulating masonry & concrete skin”. Austin-based BIG RED DOG is providing engineering services.
The website for local design firm Eye Like Design gives us more clues about the hotel’s new logo and even its development status – stating that the hotel will open in 2018.
