Hilton Austin will open an overhead walkway that connects to the Austin Convention Center at East Fourth and Neches streets in May. The project will also include a 1,891-square-foot outdoor terrace.

“The new overhead walkway will not only offer our guests a convenient access point to the hotel but will also provide an architectural marvel to downtown Austin,” Hilton Austin General Manager Robert Watson said in a Jan. 8 news release.

The walkway will be designed by architecture firm Gensler and will cost $7.5 million to construct. Hilton Austin is located at 500 E. Fourth St., Austin.
