The ATX

Austin | Block 16 | 613' | 42-Stories | Proposed

Recommended Posts

This project is more or less breaking news.  Here is a paywall protected Austin Business Journal story:  Article.

Here is the site plan filing:  Site plan application

This is a 40-story office tower being designed by Gensler (like many other Austin towers).  The exact height including the substantial mechanical screen is not listed on the elevations.  But based on the listed roof height it appears to be ~615'.

Here are the elevations from the site plan drawing posted for AULCC.  (AULCC is a mandatory City of Austin meeting about utilities for the project.):

I ate at Gus' recently, and it was pretty good.  This project won't take out Gus'.  But the convention center expansion would  - along with this proposal.

To my surprise, voters approved the massive convention center expansion this week.  That means the site of this proposed tower is in the path of the expansion.  One of the later CC expansion phases includes two privately developed towers, but not at this location.  So it'll be interesting to see if the developer and City incorporate this project into the expansion plans or if the tower plans are cancelled.

New elevations were released yesterday, and it gained two floors from what I can tell.  There is retail on the 42nd floor.  But there will still be a conflict down the road as the City wants the site for the major convention center expansion project.
