Austin U/C Projects Compilation

Recommended Posts


The 5,000 seat USL stadium is U/C at the Circuit of the Americas F1 track.  They will have played two seasons before the MLS team starts play.  It'll be interesting to see how the USL team does after the MLS team begins playing.

I created a separate thread for West Campus Projects to keep track of all the student apartment buildings.  I should probably create a separate thread for the Domain/North Austin projects because of the amount of significant projects.  Several years ago one of the Domain developers suggested that the Domain was Austin's "second downtown".  That was extreme hyperbole at the time, but not so much now.  This area has recently been up-zoned, and there are around a dozen 200'+ towers completed/under construction/planned.  There are even two 300 foot plus office towers awaiting city approval.  Facebook, Amazon, Indeed and Home Away all occupy a tower here.  In addition to all the office towers, we now have residential high- rises going up.

This is Domain Residential Tower #1 and one of the 300' + office towers.  Both are awaiting city approval.

Burnet RD & Braker LN is ground zero for the Domain/North Austin boom.  The NW area of that intersection is home to the Domain.  The general NE area is home to the IBM (6K employees) and expanding Charles Schwab campuses.  This is also the site of the Broadmoor development which was up-zoned for 360' towers and was a leading HQ2 site.  The area SE of this intersection is the future home of the MLS stadium, and the SW corner has a large University of Texas research facility.

On the right is the nearly complete Domain 12 Facebook tower.  On the left is the U/C Domain 11 Home Away Tower.  The crane in the foreground is for Domain 10.

Here's another view of Domain 10, 11 and 12.

There's downtown ~12 miles in the distance.

I wish this were taller so it would have more visibility; one of the better towers build just because it is not a box/rectangle.

Another 50 floors would have been nice.

Another Tech company makes a significant pre-lease.  In this case it's Amazon.  They leased four floors of the U/C Domain 10.  They now occupy space in three Domain office towers.  Domain 10 is the one two floors up in this photo:

Here's an update on the two State Government complexes.  The first two photos show the sites of the two office towers going up along the future mall that is replacing N. Congress Ave. at the downtown Capitol Complex.

This one is 1801 Congress from earlier today.  The pit is huge and will get deeper still because vertical construction isn't scheduled to start until June.

This is the 1601 office tower from today.  Site Prep is well underway.

This is also from today.  It's the North Austin Complex expansion project.

Google has signed a lease for their third downtown office tower.  The latest one is only 7-stories because it's in an area where height is limited by zoning.

This little guy would be "Google Tower #3".

But they'll have a decent view, and a new Whole Foods store is part of this project.

Demo finally got underway to clear a Hooters from a site south of the river.  This was several days ago, and the site is clear now.  Photos are automatically sized rather nicely on UP.  But Youtube videos are always huge.

 

The Demo was also the official groundbreaking for this.  It's called RiverSouth:

From that angle, it reminds me of something a Jawa should be driving (which is cool).
