The Hotel Granduca Austin will be designated as a member of The Leading Hotels of the World organization. The only other hotel in Texas to receive that recognition is the original Hotel Granduca Houston

The organization includes about 420 hotels in 80 countries and was established in 1928 by European hoteliers who were interested in creating an exclusive brand of high end hotels and resorts

The Hotel Granduca Austin is under construction near Westlake on the northwest corner of Capital of Texas Highway and Bee Cave Road

The Italian inspired hotel is the brainchild of Giorgio Borlenghi, founder of Interfin Cos. LP and a native of Milan, Italy. The 194-room hotel is scheduled to open in fall 2015

It will include the upscale Ristorante Visconti, which will feature Northern Italian cuisine

Austin-based Riverside Resources owns the land and is building an office building alongside the hotel

Ludlow & Associates Construction LLC of Houston is the general contractor. That company handled construction of the first Granduca

The architect is Gromatzky Dupree & Associates of Dallas, but Borlenghi said his vision and design concepts are the foundation for the hotel
