Don't think the Restaurant Association building is anywhere near demolition. ¥ou are probably talking about the four or five story building a few blocks to the south that is being renovated. It is completely gutted at present. I am starting to think maybe this sexy SXSW building is not going to happen. It is taking too long, and there has not been much information about it in a while. Hope I am wrong because it is an elegant design.

This one is not in trouble. The site plan hasn't been approved yet, but the tower crane permit was filed on 07/24. The tower crane filing means this is as much of a sure thing as a project can be before an official ground breaking.

Edit: The site plan went "Inactive" not too long ago which means a change is coming.

Walked past the site today and a construction fence was up and workers were present. I'd say demolition is imminent.

Having issues posting the picture through my phone...

Yeah, this one should be interesting. I'm also hoping for some LED ring lights around the roof. With the curved shape that should look nice.
