Well, I believe Houston doesn't have any zoning codes. Smart people, those Houstonians.

No solid plans yet, but the Railyard Condos that occupy two halves of two blocks just west of the convention center are being eyed for redevelopment. This says 1.8 million square feet is possible in two towers of up to 50-stories.

Railyard condo project in downtown Austin hits the market

Aug 03, 2018
By Shonda Novak, American-Statesman Staff

It’s a developer’s dream: Two unrestricted parcels in downtown Austin that could become a blank canvas on which to envision a large mixed-use project near both the Austin Convention Center and a commuter rail stop.

The dream could become a reality if a developer offers owners of the 112-unit Railyard condominiums a price they can’t refuse.

The Railyard was built in 1983 and spans two half city blocks at 201 E. 4th Street and 301 E. 4th Street. It is being put up for sale by the Railyard Condominium Owners Association in response to several unsolicited inquiries from developers.

Condo site next to Austin Convention Center for sale

Site has potential for hotel, offices, apartments

By Will Anderson – Managing Editor, Austin Business Journal
6 hours ago

The owner is the Railyard Condominiums Owners Association; CBRE Group Inc. has the listing, according to the Austin American-Statesman. The site could support up to 1.8 million square feet of development and is not restricted by a Capitol view corridor, the newspaper reports. That means buildings higher than 50 stories may be expected.

Can't wait to see what's going to be built in that area. Hope some thought goes into what does so they can get maximum use of the land.

While density in West Campus is a very good thing. Let's pause a moment and mourn the passing of a small building by one of Texas' greatest home grown architects, O'Neil Ford.

I agree! No CVC and plenty of room, this could be something special.

That's a great building? It looks like a piece of garbage built in 1970 that could be found in countless suburbs of Texas.

Yeah. He was also the architect of the Tower of the Americas in San Antonio.

This one is pretty squarely in the "meh" pile for me, but go see some of his other buildings. He was of the Frank Lloyd Wright vein of architecture, dealing mostly with mid-century modern style architecture. His single family homes were pretty decent. Architects design beautiful buildings, budgets dictate their outcome.

Alternate McKalla Place proposals line up on eve of Austin's MLS stadium vote

By Daniel Salazar – Staff Writer, Austin Business Journal
Aug 7, 2018, 2:10pm CDT

Developers, architects and residents are making a final push to transform a North Austin site into something other than a professional soccer stadium as the city nears another critical decision on its professional sports future.

Five different groups responded to the city's call for alternate ideas on developing or purchasing McKalla Place, a 24-acre site south of The Domain. One group submitted two options for their proposal, bringing the total number of alternate plans to six. Only one plan would still feature a professional soccer stadium on the city-owned site.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
100% Fantasy!


AND - Salazar is a well known hater of the idea of MLS moving to Austin. Cannot believe the ABJ has him on that beat. Poor choice, Mr. Pope!
