The ATX

Austin | 17th & Guadalupe | 330' | 28-Stories | Proposed

Recommended Posts

Here's a new project tall enough to get its own thread.  The site plan was released today on a city website.  It's in area that doesn't have too many tall buildings, so it will stand out at 27-stories and 319'.

It's nothing special, but it is much better than the current situation.  It is also just across that alley from a proposed 18-story Hilton Garden Inn.  From Streetview:

This Hilton Garden Hotel is going up immediately to the left of the condo tower in the above rendering.  It's only 18-stories and too short for its own thread.  But together they will be a nice boost to the development of the NW sector of Downtown.

The Hilton Garden Inn located next to this project got site plan approval today and appears ready to break ground in July.  This project goes to the Design Commission on Monday for their density bonus and FAR increase.

 We have a couple street level renderings from the Design Commission presentation.  It has ground floor retail like all downtown high-rises, but this one also has an art gallery.  This project along with a few others will help connect the Downtown and West Campus skylines.

Back to the drawing board for this one.  The Design Commission didn't like it at Monday's meeting.

Wait, the design commission actually rejects projects? How have so many other bland buildings been approved??

Ha.  Not too often, but they rejected the only two big projects they had this month - this one and the Masonic Lodge tower on top project.

EDIT:  It was the Historic Landmark Commission that rejected the Mason project.  They tend to reject projects much more often than the Design Commission.

This one is back on the agenda for Monday's Design Commission meeting.  They failed to get their needed FAR increase at the June meeting.  So they tweaked the design - especially at street level - in an attempt to get approval for the increased FAR.  These are new renderings:

The Design Commission liked the improvements made to the ground floor and approved the needed FAR increase.  The developer also added a floor.

70 Rainey's little twin. Ugh.

I suspect that this being designed to be marketed as one of the more "affordable" downtown condo high-rise options.
