Last time I was in Austin, 320 W Sixth was the latest addition. Looking forward to exploring it this weekend.

Love the long shot over the river.

It looks like a city in Philippines, or South Korea, or any city in China.

I sort of see what you mean. It's not on the same scale as the places you mention, but I suppose it will get there eventually.

To the OP...beautiful set. Would love to see the video from the drone.

Very cool. I really like the one looking east down the river toward 70 Rainey. And that 3rd one, showing the capitol view corridor and the effect it has on the skyline, is great. I also like how you can see West Campus in the background in that one.

I would have said it looks vaguely Australian.

WOW! Killer shots. Love the green park space in the first pic right across from the river / wall of buildings.

So many new buildings going up / planned to go up. This photo shoot needs to be done every 2 years ...maybe every year... please?
