The Pearl development will gain a new boutique hotel next year, as Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants was selected to operate a 146-room project on the former brewery site.
According to the San Antonio Business Journal, the four-star hotel will be located in a 119-year-old structure that used to house the brewhouse. Slated to open in the fall of 2014, the San Antonio hotel will be Kimpton’s third in Texas, with two others in Dallas.
Woodbine Development Corp. was already selected to develop the project, which will be designed by Roman and Williams.
The boutique hotel will include two new restaurants, a roof-top pool, venue space facing the San Antonio River and a cocktail bar. A new six-story tower behind the original brewhouse will house the hotel rooms.
“San Antonio is emerging as a hot destination for culinary travel, and Kimpton has a great reputation for chef-driven restaurants,” Elizabeth Fauerso, chief marketing officer at Pearl, told the San Antonio publication.
Pearl is a 22-acre urban neighborhood two miles from the center of downtown and adjacent to the northern Riverwalk. Plans call for additional residential and commercial projects, including the Cellars and Bottling House, according to the San Antonio Express-News. Once these projects are complete, the original Pearl campus will be entirely developed.
