Luxury hotel brand Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants will open its first San Antonio hotel in 2014, bringing its bougie digs to the La Villita area, an artisan district in the city's first neighborhood.

The brand will break ground on the 347-room hotel Oct. 12, beginning the construction on the hybrid new build, which will reuse an 1850s-era schoolhouse. The property, located at 423 S. Alamo St., a block south of La Villita, is slated to open in late 2024.

When complete, the 10-story Kimpton in San Antonio will feature a rooftop pool and lounge with views overlooking downtown and the neighboring greenspace. According to company officials, two adjacent historic buildings will undergo careful reuse to become a high-end restaurant, lobby bar and several one-of-a-kind hotel suites.
