We’re not sure if they plugged the leak that was causing the construction site to fill with water, but the Gables Republic Square project has resumed after a two-year delay

The 24-story development project includes both residential and hospitality elements. Gables Residential will be have 215 units, while Hotel Zaza will offer 160 hotel rooms.

The building, located at West Fourth and Guadalupe streets, was designed by Houston-based Ziegler Cooper Architects. According to the BuzzBuzzHome site, the residential component will consist of apartments.

The site was plagued earlier this year with a mysterious water seepage in the underground part of the hotel site, an occurrence that some thought might be due to an underground spring. It’s unclear at the moment about how, or if, that problem was addressed.

The project is expected to be completed in late 2018.
