The Hotel Indigo was granted two variances by city of Austin Planning Commission Tuesday night and expects to begin the demolition of the garage currently on site in the next two weeks


Hotel Indigo, a project at 805 Neches St., is a 10-story, 283,241-square-foot hotel with access to Red River and Ninth streets. The hotel is expected to open in the spring or summer of 2015


To move forward, the project needed a waiver for the parking garage to be located adjacent to Ninth Street and to allow a hotel land use between the parking garage and Ninth Street


City staff recommended the waivers be granted because of the shallow depth of the lot from Ninth Street and the steep slope of the street. Staff also agreed with the applicant that the hotel will be an attractive pedestrian use because of the restaurant and bar as well as the great streets standards sidewalks on the remaining three street frontages


The Planning Commission passed the variances on its consent agenda. The applicant on the case was Journeyman Austin Holdings Inc. and the agent was Noble Surveying & Engineering Works LLC
