Sonder Expands in Austin
Announcing Sonder’s newest location in the City of the Violet Crown
Austin attracts visitors of all types — from barbecue connoisseurs and music lovers to tech workers and everything in between. We’re thrilled to announce even more beautiful spaces that uniquely meet the needs of all of these visitors, in some of Austin’s most sought-after neighborhoods.
Building upon existing spaces across the city, the newest Sonder Austin location is at The Braxton, a boutique luxury living complex in the heart of Austin’s Triangle Area, scheduled to open in February of 2019. The Braxton is walking distance to some of the city’s favorite restaurants, shops, and parks. Guests of Sonder’s 13 units will have access to amenities that include a rooftop pool, lounge, bar and grill area, yoga yard and a state-of-the-art fitness center. The building will also feature a mural from local artist Mike Johnston, celebrating the exciting culture of the area.
Sonder first launched in Austin in June, opening its first location on South 1st. Since then, the team has rapidly expanded, opening several new locations in some of Austin’s most vibrant areas including the The Domain, Burnet Road and the heart of South Congress.
“As a hub for millions of visitors every year seeking out authentic experiences in music, food and art, Austin has become one of the world’s most popular travel destinations,” said Stephen Kincheloe, General Manager of Sonder Austin. “We’re thrilled to help visitors experience the very best that Austin has to offer, and add our tech-driven model to its world-class hospitality offerings.”
By leasing large groups of units, and even entire floors, in new luxury developments, Sonder helps to stabilize projects for developers in vibrant, mixed-use Austin neighborhoods. By early 2019, Sonder will operate over 50 units in Austin across six locations. Sonder has partnered with Mid City Development on the Braxton project.
“Sonder has pioneered an entirely new category of hospitality that’s taking the stay experience further for hundreds of thousands of guests, and we’re excited to welcome them to the Braxton,” said Jason Modzeleski, Marketing Manager for Mid City Development. “This new mixed-use development will bring luxury living and accommodations to North Burnet — I can’t think of a better place to expand on this innovative model.”
Sonder’s team in Austin comes with a wealth of experience working with some of the biggest brands in hospitality, business and entertainment, such as Momofuku, La Condesa, Sway, Hotel Ella, South Congress Hotel and CWS Apartment Homes. Sonder’s real estate team is headed up by Stephanie Coseriu with nearly twenty years of experience working with multifamily properties.
Globally, Sonder operates in more than thirteen cities across four countries offering both short and long-term stays for travelers and residents. In addition to partnering with landlords and developers to master-lease entire buildings and contiguous floors of commercially-zoned and mixed-use properties, Sonder works with cities to rejuvenate blighted and blighted properties, helping finance renovations that bring underutilized real estate back into commerce.
