Sweet line-up, I'm jealous. They had a bunch of stinkers at Movies in the Park in Austin. A bunch of chick flicks or else overly macho movies.

I was under the impression the police hq was already selected. The new police/fire hq is still a go right?

Found some renderings of "Durango" at Victoria commons, also saw the site plans and renderings for a 120 unit high rise similar to Vidorra.
I'm having trouble posting them now, but I'll post as soon as I can.
Bringing this up because it was approved by SAHA not to long ago and construction should begin in the next quarter.

Is this what you're talking about? The renderings just show buildings similar in design and scale to what's already there. No high rise.

Those are the renderings to Durango Phase.
The rendering of the highrise that I saw was in a circulating
pdf. that was for Victoria Commons.
This "would" be on the corner of Labor and Durango:


If you read through the minutes on the link that KSAL posted, they already talk about
a similar "mirror" development at the Hemisfair site. It says that a continous look and feel
is wanted on both sides and that is taking into account that SAISD would move their
offices too.

yeah I'm assuming that the "durango" would be to the left of the pic, although in the minutes I read, it said that the corner to 37 and the other end would be used for landmark development.

I count 14 stories, which seems pretty much right for that area.

I hope ITC doesn't move to UTSA. No one would visit.

Maybe there can be a land swap deal and get a spot near river north, or closer to UTSA/DT.

That sure looks a lot like the "Highland Tower" that's under construction in Houston. It's 174 feet tall with 15 floors. That building is being designed by Ziegler Cooper Architects.

Here's the thread on it here at SSP.
http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/show...ighlight=tower

Here's the Emporis page with the rendering plus a model of it.
http://www.emporis.com/en/wm/bu/?id=...houston-tx-usa

Ziegler Cooper Architects' website. Other than the Highland Tower in Houston, it didn't list one that looked like the one that miaht82 posted.

Why not build the museum veritcal? Or like Miaht said, swap and build near SAMA.

Also, Miaht, is the highrise and four story complexes supposed to begin constriction or just the two four story complexes with the high rise coming later?
