Apple is building a 75,500-square-foot, six-story hotel with 192 rooms as part of its $1 billion new corporate campus in Northwest Austin.
There a very few things that Apple can’t build apparently.
Apple is adding a 192-room enormous hotel to its new Austin campus, according to a revised site plan approved by the city of Austin on April 29. The updated plan shows a 75,500-square-foot, six-story hotel, as well as previously designated office buildings and parking garages.
Apple’s second Austin campus will contain structures totaling three million square feet, making it one of the world’s largest office buildings.
“Apple is a trendsetter in so many ways. Its proposed hotel as part of its new Austin campus is another example of it being ahead of the curve,” John Boyd Jr., principal of Princeton corporate location consulting firm The Boyd Co. Inc., explained to CultureMap.
While it might be surprising for Apple to build a hotel, Boyd Jr. explains that “having a hotel connected at the hip with its corporate parent is not common now, but in the post-COVID-19 corporate travel world, I expect we will be seeing more of this concept, especially from deep-pocketed tech firms like Apple, Google, Facebook, and Microsoft.”
The first corporate hotel is currently being built by American Airlines and is due to open in Fort Worth in 2021. It will boast an impressive 600 rooms along with a conference and training center.
