Bunkhouse was at the groundbreaking ceremony for the Hotel Saint Augustine and in an interview the President of Bunkhouse Hotels said this......

 

"Bunkhouse also has more in store for Houston. “We have another project here in Houston that we’ve been working on in The Heights,” Bonifacio says. Timing? “After this one.”

Are they referring to this Daphne hotel or a separate project?

A city master project plan for The Daphne Hotel's off-site parking was submitted in late June. The plan pertains to an off-site parking lot at 301 W 20th St. It was submitted by Talon Engineering.

The project passed the Office of the City Engineer's preliminary review. It also passed a review from the parks department. However, the plans have not been approved for permitting yet.

Great photos as always, @hindesky. Thanks for taking these and sharing with all of us.

As for the the lot behind The Rice Box ( 300 W 20th St ), the address is 1915 Rutland St. As noted, it will be one of the off-site parking lots for The Daphne Hotel.

Parking area at the end of the block on 29th St., the boarded up house is coming down too.

I think this is the 0 W 20th parcel and the 305 W 20th St parcel (where 301 W 20th St is located).  As mentioned in the quoted post, both lots will become an off-site parking lot for The Daphne Hotel at 347 W 20th St.

The demolished house is 305 W 20th St. It's near Rutland St.

Does anyone know if the off-site parking lots for The Daphne will include landscaping? The parking plan in the above posts show shrubbery, plants, or trees. 

By the way, great shots as always, @hindesky! Thanks for the photos.

Planning Commission deferred all three proposals till the next meeting.

This went from a 37 key hotel to a 51 key with a possible restaurant on site and the biggest complaint by the neighbors was parking, traffic and possible traffic using the alley. They also don't want the house demolished for a parking lot. The florist across Ashland St. was proposed to be purchased for a parking lot but now might be a coffee shop.

"Hotel Daphne — named after Daphne of Greek mythology, the daughter of river god Peneus — will have a ceremonial groundbreaking Sept. 26 and is expected to open in early 2025.

The project is a collaboration of Bunkhouse Hotels, RGA Ventures (developing partner), Blanchard A+D (architects of record) and Darwin Architecture."
