The site plan had basically the same info added to it as did the 610 East site plan. They are looking for a zoning change for a maximum height of 45-stories. Here's a location map from the site plan.

Well, we know this one will not be 45 stories (so I'm not sure why the tread has it in the title). There is a CVC running straight over the property.

That view corridor doesn't exist at the moment. It's a proposed new one along with a couple more in that area. It's being assumed that these new high rise proposals popping up in that area now are serious proposals, but also that they're political in making a statement that developers and property owners in that area wish to retain the right to build as high as they want within the current rules.

Ah. That makes sense. I did not realize that the CVC was not yet in place. Thank you, Kevin, for clarifying it for me.

Brings up a worthwhile question, though: are there any ways to waive or exempt a specific plot from a CVC?

Isn't CVC 16 the existing 7th and Tillery CVC?

If anyone can make sense of this, here's the CVC determination for both 610 East and 705 East:

https://abc.austintexas.gov/attachme...ZAuMmnTFRtINhO


Both CVCs on the 705 East site are current CVCs and not the proposed ones. So I think "up to 4 or 5 floors" is closer to reality than "up to 45 floors". They seemed to have just copied the the "up to 45 floors" verbiage from the 610 East site plan to the 705 East site plan. Anyway, instead off 11 planned towers in this small area, we have 10. I can live with that.

Both 610 East and 11th & Sabine are going to have be skinny towers to fit in between the CVCs.
