The Boutique Hotel at 416 Congress Avenue is located in the Congress Avenue Historic District of Downtown Austin. The project consists of a 30-story, 130-key hotel built on top of an existing 3-story historic structure. BIG RED DOG was responsible for the preliminary feasibility study, preparation of construction documents, and project permitting. The permitting effort for this project required approvals from the Historic Landmark Commission, the Downtown Commission, the Planning Commission, and Austin’s City Council. Additional approvals included obtaining approval for a valet curb cut on Congress Avenue.
