Here is one I don't think I've seen before. 17th & Lavaca (1620-1624 Lavaca) Flyer says max height is 120' for this site.

I think that's just a mock-up of a 120' building to market the lot.

Banger's is expanding, and it'll eliminate a small surface lot on Rainey St.

W 5th Getting More Affordable Housing, Market Rate Multifamily

Quote:
In the first co-development by CWS Capital Partners and Austin-based Oden Hughes, 1301 West Fifth St. in Austin will soon become a mixed-use project. The partnership broke ground on the development that will deliver in late 2018. The six-story project west of Downtown will have 226 units of Class-A multifamily with one, two and three bedrooms, 10% of which will be rented below market rates to qualified households.

The ground floor will have just over 2K SF of retail. Oden Hughes Construction served as general contractor on three previous CWS projects, and will serve in that capacity for this project. Kelly Grossman Architects designed the development. Amenities include a lounge and deck with skyline and lake views, a pool, sundeck, game room, dog park and indoor dog washing room, bike workshop and bike storage.

In the past five to six years, hotels have also had the highest occupancy rates the industry has ever experienced, according to STR.

The number of new hotels in Texas is notable. In 2017, Marriott plans to open eight hotels in Austin, seven in Houston and 23 in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, according to the company. Ninety-two other Marriott hotels are in the planning stages for the three metro areas. Hilton says it is planning for 75 new hotels there. InterContinental Hotels Group has more than 100 hotel projects in the Austin, Dallas and Houston metro areas, including the Candlewood Suites, Crowne Plaza, Even Hotels, Holiday Inn Express, Holiday Inn, Hotel Indigo, InterContinental Hotels and Resorts and Staybridge Suites brands.

If that ratio for this year for Austin (8 out of 38 Marriotts in Austin, DFW, Houston) is applied to the other totals mentioned...

16 more Hiltons
19 more Marriotts
21 more ICHGs


Obviously, not accurate, but fun nonetheless.

Note that this probably includes a bunch of suburban projects.

The American-Statesman had an article that talked about the Marriott "Moxy Hotel" on the Drag. This says it'll open in 2019.

The Goodnight development in SE Austin will contain the new SE high school. AISD is purchasing land there for the future school. Years of arguing finally leads to a decision.

Quote:
A 64.9-acre tract of land within the Goodnight development will be purchased by Austin ISD for the construction of a new high school in Southeast Austin. The cost of the land is $13,068,000 and is available through funds acquired during a December 2008 bond election.

Bowie HS in SW Austin is being expanded with the purchase of 2 neighboring tracts as well. It'll go from 60 acres to roughly 113 acres. Much of it must remain pervious cover, though. It will allow them to expand impervious cover and maintain their ratio.

Those proposed new CVCs just became a touch more inconvenient.

The Hotel Mirabeau, however, just started to look like a MUCH better investment.

Any office building that is 65+ stories with a small crown is likely going to be a supertall.

Let's consider Oracle's campus, currently under construction at 560k sq. ft (larger than Frost's 525k) and is expected to house some of the current local workforce (~1100) and all of the increase (~500). Translate this to Merck's announcement of a ~600 person workforce: this is HUGE for prospective office buildings in that area. Because of the CVCs, whatever building they occupy is likely going to go tall. 40 stories at least. However, they'd be a single tenant and there's no reason that a developer wouldn't build additional office space for other tenants. If this ends up being part of the Brackenridge development, I expect they'll simply get one of the parcels to themselves and the other office buildings take up the additional built space over time. If this ends up NOT being part of that series of developments, I expect that the office space will be even larger to accommodate other firms in the same building (maybe 50, 60 stories). Either of these fits their stated strategy to locate near collaborative institutions, I'd argue.

Of course, using the number of workers to estimate the size of a building is going to be imprecise. That being said, whatever we see come of this is going to be fun to watch.

You make a good point -- that Merck's building(s) might be part of the Brackenridge redevelopment, not something apart or standalone. That said, this Merck announcement seems really major to me -- it's a massive commitment to in its own right, but also a demonstration of the potential of what's being done with Brackendridge/Dell. Good sign that there's going to be more like this as time goes on.

Not quite true...



As a note: The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat defines Supertall and Megatall buildings as:

The CTBUH defines “supertall” as a building over 300 meters (984 feet) in height, and a “megatall” as a building over 600 meters (1,968 feet) in height. As of June 2015 there were 91 supertall and 2 megatall buildings fully completed and occupied globally.

likely is the key here -- if we don't know how tall a building is, but happen to know the floor count, that provides us very useful information that we can use to guess a plausible range of heights for a potential building.
