Request for construction pics

25 posts in this topic

There are at least 3 structures that I can see west of congress that are 5+ stories already. I can make out the AMLI building as the frame work looks to be near completion. But I have trouble depicting which building is which other than AMLI.

I might be able to get pics when I travel through downtown on Wednesdays.

Nice pictures. My own camera/computer dont seem to be getting along with eachother. June is far away, but that is when I think I can post pictures. Imagine the progress that will be made by that time. The AMLI building should be completely dressed in glass by then.

Hey guys, I have a few more pics to share. These shots were taken this morning, a VERY clear and sunny morning... All from the midtown area, about 2 miles north of UT campus:Overall shot... notice AMLI2 on the far right...

The Monarch .. I believe it is now in the 18-19 story range. Counting the crown, the Monarch should peek above the South Austin horizon, from this vantage point, when complete.

Nice. Is that glass I see on the 360? If so, I imagine it would be some sort of test?

building is looking good, I like the glass, better than what most buildings have been doing. Thanks for the updates.

The crane of Monarch was raised yesterday. Here's a shot I just took a few minutes ago, from the north. The crane is now well above the horizon...
