Named after the iconic Austin musician, Townes Van Zandt, the Hotel Van Zandt is a BIG RED DOG project currently under construction in the Rainey Street district of Austin, TX. Construction began back in July 2013 with the excavation of the 3 story subterranean garage and associated foundation system excavated in 5-foot increments and supported by an extensive soil retention system.
Recently, the project’s general contractor, Tribble & Stephens, drilled and poured almost 60 piers into the soil for the foundation of the 16 story hotel, erected the project’s tower crane (which you can see from IH 35), and started pouring the initial slabs and columns for the bottom garage level.
The Hotel Zandt is expected to finish by the 1st Quarter of 2015. The hotel will include 16 stories of luxury hotel rooms, a cafe, restaurant, pool and bar, event space, and three levels of underground parking all within the heart of Rainey Street.
