Earlier this month, the developers of the W Hotel & Residences announced successful funding of the project and immediately broke ground on the 165 condo unit and luxury hotel project. Once the W Hotel is completed in 2010 and the Condos completed in 2011, the project will also contain the 2,480-capacity venue for “Austin City Limits” as well as other restaurants, bars, and retail.
For the first time, actual listings are now available on the MLS, and as always, we have added the W to our Condo Listing Page.
As of the beginning of the month, just more than half, 85 of the 165 units, are under contract with nonrefundable 10% deposits. Amazingly, the average price of sold units is an amazingly high $1.1 million with prices ranging from the high $400,000s to more than $3 million. The three listings on the market today (many more are being sold directly) range in price from $617,500 for a large 1,149 square foot 1 bedroom / 1 bath unit to $2.875 million for a 3,932 SF 3 bedroom / 3 bath unit.
Owners of W Austin Residences will have full use of all the hotel’s facilities as well as access to 24-hour room service, daily housekeeping service and concierge services, and a spa in the building. Whatever, Whenever service provides the closets thing to a personal butler: call them to shop for groceries, take a dog for a walk, fix a flat tire, of pick-up take out on your behalf.
Here are renderings of the planned interiors:
