The ATX's Achievements


City (7/14)



  1. The 305 S. Congress project which is 6 of the 9 towers was approved by City Council on Thursday. I believe they got a height increase to 600' as well, but I can't confirm that yet.
  2. The FAA filings for the building were submitted. They confirm the 1,035' height. https://oeaaa.faa.gov/oeaaa/external/searchAction.jsp?action=displayOECase&oeCaseID=561697792&row=394
  3. The project has a website now: https://www.wilsontower.com/
  4. A recent view after the official topping out. This current new tallest at 874' is still a ways away from being occupied, but it could fall to fourth tallest in less than five years. Photo by Urbannizer
  5. This would apparently be the tallest all residential building in the U.S. outside of NYC. Austin currently has the the two tallest all residential buildings west of the Mississippi.
  6. The crane base for the second of three Luffing cranes is in place. This crane will reach over 1,200'. Photo credit: Austin American-Statesman
  7. The height bump was announced today. This is supertall #2 and will be 13' taller than the first one - Waterline - currently U/C. it's all residential - all apartments, no condos. Wilson Tower plans unveiled; Skyscraper could be tallest in Austin, all of Texas - Austin Business Journal (bizjournals.com)
  8. The Austin tallest projects lists in the OP have been updated.
  9. Here are photo updates from the project's three webcams:
  10. This thread started off with the six towers proposed for what is known as the 305. S. Congress project. But there are also two 410' office towers proposed for 200. E. Riverside and a 400' residential tower at 311-315 S. Congress. All nine towers are south of the river where there are currently no towers over ~250'. The 305 S. Congress developers (Endeavor) may be seeking a height increase to 600' up from 525' which was up from 400'. 200 E. Riverside: https://abc.austintexas.gov/public-search-other?t_detail=1&t_selected_folderrsn=12967257&t_selected_propertyrsn=162042 311-315 S. Congress: https://abc.austintexas.gov/public-search-other?t_detail=1&t_selected_folderrsn=12894566&t_selected_propertyrsn=398841
  11. Here's a nice view of Sixth & Guadalupe just days before it's recent topping out. Well, we know this won't be called the Meta tower now even though they apparently signed a 10-12 year lease for all the office space. Meta is cutting back on office leases across the country, and have decide to sublease their space in this tower. Photo by Ryan Friesen, on Flickr
