When it does, 3 of the buildings under construction will be in the top 5 tallest office towers in Austin when all are completed (71, 185, and Parsley) and this will be the tallest office building until either 6XGuad or Republic start construction.

I found these videos helpful in understanding the process, and it appears pretty similar to some of the equipment they have in the photo above.

Can't wait to see the final renders for this building.
Really hoping we get something similar to one of the sides of the Bahrain World Trade Center. Picture something like this on the lake shore downtown. What a skyline changer that would be.

We're not. Check out h2h's photoshop of what we are getting in the photo and video thread and try not to be too disappointed. From that angle... I am.

I'm still waiting on the real renderings provided by the architects. What's been published on these boards and in the news are low quality renderings that match the old schematics/permits. The newer set looks pretty different - no sections for the tree areas, possibly no balconies, and the other angles look pretty different.

This has certainly been the weirdest announcement for a building I've seen here. No confirmations from the architects, developers, or tenants....and dirt is moving.

These renderings do match the old - and not new - schematics, you’re right.

Remember, the site plan for the tower has not been approved yet. So we don't have the final elevations. They are technically only working on the underground parking structure which was approved.
This project still needs to go to the Design Commission for a density bonus and that is where we will see some renderings. This project wasn't on the January Design Commission agenda as I was hoping. But the next meeting is 02/25, and the agenda for that meeting has not been posted online yet.

Heck if we just get some lighting like that it would be fucking epic.

Austin's downtown is really lacking in nighttime lighting IMO....I dont know if that's a Dark Skies thing or what, but I would love to see some more lighting and color at night. Dallas has got it down, San Antonio's starting to get there.

I'm going to be extremely upset if they took out the tree sections. I think it would be a terrible move on their part and will diminish what this tower could be. The tree sections is what would set this tower apart from any other in Texas.

God, imagine 185 and the old render of Proper side by side. I get chills just imagining two sharp pyramid structures like that.

Some alternate views of today's progress, this one is going to be fun to watch once it starts going up. Good views of all four sides.
