Red River Street Canopy Walk to Connect Fairmont Austin with Austin Convention Center

AUSTIN, TEXAS — Manchester Texas Financial Group, the developer of the Fairmont Austin, has unveiled a design that will be built between the hotel and Austin Convention Center. Known as the Red River Street Canopy Walk, the 33-foot elevated connection will enable Fairmont Austin hotel guests and the public to cross Waller Creek while traveling to and from the second level of the Austin Convention Center. The walkway will also be publicly accessible from the Waller Creek Trail and streets below. Construction recently began on underground infrastructure for the project. Work on the above-ground connection is slated to start in early 2017 and wrap up in May 2017. Manchester Texas Financial worked with the Waller Creek Conservancy to create the concept. New York-based Thomas Phifer and Partners designed the walkway. Austin-based dwg. is serving as the local landscape architect, and Big Red Dog is the project’s civil engineer.
