The ATX

405 Colorado | 366' | 26-Stories | Proposed

Recommended Posts

This polarizing office tower is going through the city's approval process.  I like the fact that they don't try to hide the necessary evil parking levels.  It has a glass elevator taking people from the parking levels to the office levels!

This project is pre-leasing and has a website now.  In case those renderings weren't enough for ya', the website has a video.  Here are a couple stills taken from the video showing the tower's location in the Warehouse District:

This project is in trouble as proposed.  The Austin Design Commission has twice denied the developers the F.A.R. increase they need to build it.  The commission does not like the amount of proposed parking even though the developer's reason for the parking is that it will serve as a public parking garage and as well as parking for the tenants.  The open level separating the parking and office levels is planned as public space.

This project finally looks to be moving forward.  The Design Commission wouldn't approve the needed F.A.R. increase to build it due to amount of parking that they found to be excessive.  But the Planning Commission (which can apparently  override the concerns of the Design Commission) votes on it tomorrow, and the Planning Commission's staff recommends approval.  The Planning Commission usually follows the staff's recommendations.
