AUSTIN | 3rd & Colorado Residential | 518 FEET | 44 FLOORS

We've been following this one, but now that the elevations have been released to the public it needs a thread.

518' is better than 400'...I'll take it! That area is going to seem a lot more dense with this new addition, especially being right next to Colorado Tower. Imagine if the lot just north of the Austonion on the same block and the old Children's Museum get developed with high rises!

From the renderings, it seems that there may be some ground-level retail. Is that the case?

That's the case with virtually every Austin high-rise. In this case we only know that a restaurant is part of the ground floor retail.

Sweet! This would be 2 feet taller than Frost then and would be (by then) the 4th tallest behind The Independent, The Austonian, and 360 Condos. The elevations show the 44th floor to be at 480 feet, which is 4 feet over the highest part of the roof of the W Hotel.

This says it would be the 4th tallest, but it's actually the 5th tallest. The Independent, The Austonian, Fairmont Hotel and 360 Condos would each be taller, although, it will have the 3rd highest roof in the city. The Fairmont and 360 Condos both have spires.

315-unit luxury apartment skyscraper proposed for downtown Austin moves closer to approval

If approved, the building at 300 Colorado St. would be the fourth-tallest building in the city's skyline

A 44-story, 315-unit luxury apartment skyscraper moved one step closer to taking the place of the one-story Sullivan’s Steakhouse at 300 Colorado St., Austin, after the city’s Design Commission approved the plans on Monday night.

The proposal now heads to the Historic Landmark Commission as the developer, Austin 3C Venture LP, has requested a demolition permit for the more-than-80-year-old, one-story, brick facade building that sits on the southern end of downtown’s Warehouse District.

Although the plans passed 8-1, commissioners voiced concern over the historic significance of the site. Though they said the Warehouse District is not an official historic district, commissioners said it is one recognized by longtime residents. Rather than demolish the structure—out of which Sullivan’s Steakhouse still operates—commissioners expressed a desire to maintain its character on at least the ground floor, which is planned to operate as a commercial space.
