Another Austin hotel is being proposed, this time at 805 Neches St., east of Interstate Highway 35



Land owner 9th Red River LLC is seeking to rezone two lots to allow a hotel to be built



The 0.81 acres that will be rezoned are listed as two 17,674-square-foot lots, one of which is vacant and the other is listed as a garage. The owner has proposed building a hotel on both lots, according to city documents. Other details on the project are not yet available



Jim Bennett, of Jim Bennett Consulting, is handling the rezoning case for the property. Sam Kumar, of Journeyman Construction Inc., is also listed on documents for the zoning case



Staff comments on the case are due by Sept. 18. The project would need approval from the Planning Commission and then a final OK from the City Council



One of the most high-profile of the many other hotel projects being discussed these days is part of the Waller Center development - a $500 million, three-building project near East Cesar Chavez and Red River streets on the banks of Waller Creek
