^The "Post Office Towers" name is incorrect. Only one of those buildings was supposed to house a downtown post office, and that was just a generic name we Austinites gave it. That plan has since changed, and there is no longer a post office planned for the development. So really the "Post Office Tower" should just be noted by its address. Or perhaps by its developer (Novare). Also, I doubt the heights will stay the same. The 2nd tower did have a name, at least the newspaper was reporting it was called "Condominiums at 6th & Nueces".

They are:

401-499 West 6th Street - reported to be 550 feet tall with 40 floors).

Condominiums at 6th & Nueces - reported to be between 420 and 480 feet tall with 35 floors).

----------

The Museum Tower only had one official rendering shown. There was another rendering that included it from an adjacent development.

The W Austin Hotel & Residences isn't complete yet, (only up to the 8th floor). But there are renderings of the building in its construction thread in the high rise section of the forum.

Spring, The Austonian and Ashton have really good photo coverage in their construction threads in the high rise section. So check those threads for photos.

The Four Seasons Residences is topped out. There are renderings of it, and the glass is about halfway up now.

But does that have anything to do with the diagrams?

Yes, because they have to be able to see them to get an idea of what they look like so they can draw them. And because the diagrams are drawn to scale, they need to know their dimensions. I only mentioned the name change, because they aren't being called that anymore.

This isn't a photo of Twelve Domain. It hasn't even broken ground yet. And I doubt this is what the building will look like. This one of Novare's "Twelve" branded towers in Atlanta.

Yes, any photos should be credited by mentioning the photographer's name, plus a link to the website where you found them.

And to make it easier for this thread, the construction photos posted by forum members here, it would be easier to just link to those threads instead. Just link to the thread for each building.

Well I do know that isn't a photo of it, a photo of another Twelve branded tower in Atlanta instead but I posted it as it was shown on many "TWELVE Domain" renders. It is just a model to see how it would look, like the rendering of Spring that wasn't actually Spring but a different building made by the same architect in Vancouver.
