Austin: Hotel Construction Slated for May for EastVillage Project

A New York developer has registered an architectural barrier project report with a state regulatory agency, giving notice of plans for a six story hotel development.

The project is located at 3500 E Parmer Lane, across from Samsung’s Austin Semiconductorcomplex, in northeast Austin’s Tech Ridge corridor.

Jim Cicchini with Reger Holdings LLC, out of West Seneca, New York, is proposing to construct The Hotel Austin at EastVillage, according to the report filed Jan. 19 with the Texas Department of Licensing & Regulation.

The scope of work for the 151,780 square foot hotel involves construction of a ballroom, swimming pool, restaurant and bar at an estimated cost of $45 million.

Construction on the hotel is expected to begin on May 1 and be completed by Feb 1., 2024.

The hotel is part of an overall project named EastVillage, which is a 425-acre mixed-use urban center that will consist of urban density, expansive parkland, single and multi-family residential options, restaurant, entertainment and retail venues. 

The full build out of the project is expected to be completed sometime during the 2028 to 2030 time frame.

The Austin office of Gensler is on board the project as the design firm.
