ERRRRRRR!
Houston didn't win a state music museum. Austin was just stopped from getting one. As far as I can tell it could still happen during the next Legislature session.

Has anyone been by the site? Are they currently excavating for both office buildings or just the 1801 building across from Bullock? Also, the State's North Austin campus was scheduled to break ground December 1st.

City Council paved the way Thursday for a major state project that will transform three blocks of downtown from roadway into a grass-covered pedestrian mall.

Council voted to give the Texas Facilities Commission the OK to seize control of city right of way on Congress Avenue between 16th Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard to construct the “Texas Mall” and the underground parking garage underneath.
