The massing for this rumored building even shows up in the Proper rendering that's posted on RECA's website, as mentioned and posted in the Proper thread. From the below site plan, Austin Music Hall is north of Proper, and Block 185 is south of Proper. I think the building that Syndic's friend was talking about is Cielo's redevelopment, not Block 185.
If thats the case then either Syndic's friend or the architect went way overboard when saying supertall. I would doubt it being more than 20 floors if that if it's only 250,000 sq feet.

But then again the way some people around here think anything over 10 floors is a super tall LMAO.
