AUSTIN (KXAN) - The W Austin Hotel was closed for 11 days this summer due to shattering glass panes - we now know how much it will cost to fix the problem.
In a quarterly report filed by Stratus Properties with the Securities and Exchange Commission , the report indicates it will cost $700,000 for the estimated repairs.
In the report, the company also mentions that they're in the process of engineering and redesigning the replacement railings and hope to have the new system in place by the end of the year.
The first incident of falling glass panes happened on June 10th and several more incidents happened in the following weeks.
To avoid further accidents, Stratus Properties decided to remove all the balcony glass panels from the building and replaced the glass with temporary engineered wood panels.
The cause of the glass breakage is still under investigation.
