By Tess Farrand, Associate Content Editor

FIXER UPPER couple Chip and Joanna Gaines will renovate a historic hotel in downtown Waco, Texas, slated to open in 2021.

“We’ve got a new project in the works that will hopefully be more relaxing and restful for you than this video lets on,” Joanna mentioned via Instagram.

“Watch the full video and learn more about what’s coming to downtown Waco.”

In the video of the announcement, the Christian couple banter back and forth as Chip dresses up as a hotel bellhop.

Within the first seven hours of the video going live, close to 1.5 million people tuned in to hear the news.

According to People:

Chip and Jo will begin renovations on a nearly 100-year-old building this fall, working with Adventurous Journeys Capital Partners — the team behind several stylish lodgings such as Soho House Chicago, the Graduate Hotels and the Pontchartrain Hotel — to breathe new life into the 53,000-square-foot property, a former county office building.

Joanna shares that she and Chip “were amazed by the unique architecture and how much of it was still intact” upon first touring the historic building. “Instantly, we knew we wanted to be a part of making this place sing again,” she wrote.

They plan to transform it into a three story hotel complete with a grand ballroom, restaurant, cafe, rooftop terrace and more, all while maintaining the building’s timeless details and preserving the history.
