Plans call for upscale Thompson Hotels, condos at location near Tobin Center
Developers are in talks with city officials about building a 21-story hotel and condo tower on the River Walk that would include the first Texas location of the upscale Thompson Hotels chain.
Houston-based Powers Brown Architecture has submitted plans for a tower on a 0.66-acre vacant lot at 101 Lexington Ave. across from the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts. The tower is the latest bit of good news for the city’s effort to build up downtown — another developer revealed plans last month for a 30-story apartment tower on the River Walk.
The building also would be a win for the northern part of downtown, which livened up after the Tobin Center opened in 2014 but remains marred by large swaths of parking lots.
