Aloft-Element Hotel Austin
Status: In DevelopmentUnder Construction
Situated at the intersection of 7th Street and Congress Avenue in the trendy Downtown Austin, Texas this Aloft-Element hotel will be as much a hospitality project as a work of art. Steve Poe along with White Lodging and REI Real Estate Services brought this development to life and broke ground in 2015. The dual-branded hotel captures two distinct travelers: Aloft caters to young professionals visiting for a few days, while Element offers a green extended-stay experience and both fall under the Starwood Hotel banner. Combined, Aloft-Element will consist of 422 rooms, 1,472 square feet of meeting space, a 1,469 square feet fitness room plus a restaurant and bar. The building will stand 31 stories and be LEED certified.
