The Moxy (11th & Olive)


Edited: Sep 9


This new hotel will be built on a current parking lot in Downtown. The lot is next door tot he LeMeridien/Majestic Hotel.


Developer: Hawkeye Hotels

Architect: Dynamik Design

Builder: TBA

Cost: $18,000,000

Floors 12

Height: 145FT

Rooms: 154

Construction Begin: Late 2019

Construction End: Sometime in 2021

This has been moving forward steadily. The LCRA approved the tax abatement request last month (90% for 10 years). Behind the scenes, Hawkeye has moved this up to be one of their higher priorities. Right now, they plan on tarting construction after the neighboring LeMeridien hotel is completed this Fall. The Moxy will create 40 full time jobs and 10 part time jobs.

Cost has risen to $18 Million. Supposedly, the project is now out to bid with contractors. They are hoping for a late 2019 start.

  • In addition to the neighboring Greeley Building, the Advantes Group will redevelop the Hoffman Building into high-end office space. The office space will complement the work they did in the neighboring Peper Lofts Building. Abstrakt Marketing is based there and it is assumed that a similar tenant will sign on to the Hoffman Building.

  • Developers Kunal Mody (Reimagine Hospitality) and Jordan Haas (Rock Capital Group) are planning to convert the 1926 era Shell Building into a 184 room hotel and ground floor retail space. The developers have acquired the building are have requested the LCRA to blight the property and approve an 87% tax abatement on the property. Alderwoman Tammika Hubbard supports the tax abatement. They’ll review the request at the April 23rd LCRA Meeting. Many are counting on the redevelopment to being more visitors to a Washington Avenue and spur some retail development there. Others are also saying that despite this hotel pushing the total number of hotel rooms under construction or planned in Downtown over 1600, this will be utilized more. Eitherway, I think it will be a good addition and bring some more life to the evolving Locust Street corridor. The Shell Building was originally built in 1926.
