    The next redo project for former “Fixer Upper” TV stars Chip and Joanna Gaines will be a Texas hotel.

    The couple on Thursday announced plans to transform a three-story office building into a boutique hotel in Waco. The site is a few blocks from their Magnolia Market at the Silos.

    McLennan County owned the 91-year-old Grand Karem Shrine building. Commissioners last year agreed to sell the property, which housed health service offices, to Magnolia Vacation Rentals for $930,000. The county sold a nearby parking garage for $500,000.

    No name was announced for the hotel expected to open in 2021.
