Here's one of the many renderings of this condo project that will be the new tallest.  If the proposed towers for the Town Lake Villas site get built as proposed, this one's title as the tallest building in Austin will be short lived.

The Independent shared a couple construction photos on their Facebook page.  The U/C building on the left is for Google's offices.

The two cranes are for this project.  The building on the left is the new Austin Central Library that is still U/C:

Here's a photo taken from their webcam this afternoon.  One corner of the building is up to the sixth floor.  The crane in the background on the left is for the Fifth & West tower.

The developers expect the Independent to be topped out by the end of the year.  They will have to maintain about a floor per week height increase every week until the end of the year to get that done.  From today:

In this corvairkeith photo, the new tallest is just starting to be visible from across the river.  (It's where the blue cranes are.)

A view from their webcam this morning.  Fifth & West is rising up at left center.  The four towers going up in this area will really make an impact on the western half of the skyline.
