Dude, so negative. And bitter. Do you really wonder why people don't want people like you moving here? How could that possibly be a good thing?

My apologies, I could have been less mouthy. I was in a bad mood from reading negative comments about MLS coming to Austin. We seriously need a pro team of something to keep me entertained. My alma mater is not UT.

A Gensler architect posted a picture of 600 Guad, saying something to the tune of "look at this nice-looking building, it will make downtown Austin better."

Lots of people (including me, and other forum members) follow him on instagram, and may or may not have commented.

One person, whom I can't imagine is a member of this forum, posted a comment essentially bashing highrise developments, and lamenting the Austin of old. Obviously most of us think differently, and someone ended up getting in a 50-comment argument with this random guy about how if he doesn't like growth and development, he picked the wrong city to live in. The guy responds by saying, in essence, that development is bad and Austin needs to stop changing and growing. It devolves into namecalling and foolishness. Not sure if either of the people involved were forum members ( I doubt it), but it lead to the Gensler architect deleting his post.

Those comment sections are cancer. People are so close-minded it hurts.

Lynd Development is changing their name to Kairoi. They are based in San Antonio and were considering a move to Austin or Denver. But the City of San Antonio is offering incentives for them to move to downtown San Antonio. An S.A. Express-News article about the company mentions their biggest project which is apparently still in need of financing:

Kairoi, which is headquartered in San Antonio with offices in Denver and Austin, will take over the projects that Lynd Development has been working on, including an 850-foot, 62-story skyscraper that would be Austin’s tallest building. The company is raising capital for the tower, Lynd said.

I thought Lincoln Property Group was behind this too. Joint venture?

What set Austin on a different path toward growth and prosperity was that it diversified its economy. Having UT here didn't hurt either. It's a huge boost, but Lubbock has Texas Tech which isn't exactly a shabby school with a mediocre influence on Lubbock. Those places aren't doing horribly, though, Lubbock I would suggest is in better shape than Midland and Amarillo are judging from the number of proposed projects it has versus those two. Midland has even been tearing down some of its high rises. The only one out there in better shape than those three is El Paso. I'm glad Austin grew up. Sure, there's charm in smaller cities, but it felt like forever before we had anything interesting to do in Austin, especially in downtown unless you were only into music.
I moved here in the late '50s while in high school (graduated St. Ed's HS - Class of 1962).
The phenomenal growth of Austin is fascinating to me, as back then I wondered what the city would look like in the far future. I think it is amazingly cool in spite of the terrible traffic.

Yes, it's a joint venture. Lincoln seems to have gotten more attention - maybe because they are the bigger developer of the two in Austin. But Lynd co-developed the Bowie with Endeavor. In that case Endeavor got most of the attention. Maybe Lynd (Kairoi) likes to stay low keyed.

If they are actively seeking financing this may be further along than I thought it was (looking for a tenant).

At this point I wouldn't mind adding 3 floors to the podium just to get to 70. Come on! Just 3 more floors!!

The brochure notes it's all office. Wasn't it mixed use originally?
