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.
