In the first major new hotel announcement in nearly two years, a 17-story hotel is planned for downtown Austin near the Warehouse District.The hotel, proposed for the southwest corner of West Fifth and Colorado streets, would be a new “eco-luxury” concept called One, by Starwood Capital Group. Starwood Capital has billed the concept as the first luxury, eco-friendly global hotel brand.

Starwood has hired Woodbine Development Corp. to build the hotel with 250 to 275 rooms.


The higher side of the Starwood project would face Fifth Street, rising approximately 210 to 215 feet. The southern side, backing up to the Warehouse District, would be 30 to 35 feet high. There also will be a large deck, about 60 feet above ground level, with amenities including pool, public bar and “green” roof with significant landscaping.

The site is now occupied by a two-story brick building.


The hotel is the first new hotel project to be proposed downtown since Hixon Properties Inc. announced plans in February 2008 for a Westin hotel at Third and Colorado Streets.
