Austin | Block 185 | ? Feet | ? Floors | Proposed

There seems to be a lot of speculation about this lot. I couldn't find a thread and through my extensive searching all I found was Austin Proper information. Does anyone know more about this?

Block 185 will be the residential tower that was planned on being a twin to Northshore, but that recent massings in other buildings' (Proper, etc.) renderings show will have a different design (thankfully).

It doesn't yet warrant it's own thread.

A thread for this lot was definitely overdue. Here's a rendering showing what they've projected for this site:

That rendering is so old. The project will definitely not look like that.

We know the project won't look like the rendering just as Northshore, Austin Proper and the office tower don't look like that. But there is/was a proposal (39-stories, 410') and more information should be forthcoming once Austin Proper is underway. So I think it deserves a thread.

Exactly. Do you think I don't know that that rendering is old and that it will almost assuredly not look like that? I'm posting what we've got. Because this will be the thread for this lot from now on.

How can one argue against this having its own thread. All that crap in the Domain and elsewhere has a thread.

I think it's because you are a known trespasser.

Kevin, can you duplicate and add the posts regarding Facebook rumors to this thread since they're potentially relevant to this project?

Yesterday this didn't warrant its own thread. Quit trolling. In unrelated news, this will be around the 400' mark.

Well, I still think it doesn't warrant it's own thread, but since the community disagrees we might as well get all the relevant information in the thread... Don't be a jerk.

This thread has a lot of activity. That in itself shows that this project is definitely worthy of its own thread.

Kevin went dark a few days ago. This is what happens when our moderator leaves us alone in here.

We become toddlers wondering where our juice boxes are.

LoneStarMike posted a link to some vague hints at least as to the whereabouts of the forthcoming tower for this lot, reposted here for your inconvenience: Link to slide presentation (pdf file)

I was glad to see that it most likely won't block the view of the Proper as seen from directly across the Lake or from Cesar Chavez. It looks like Second Street's pedestrian attractions will wrap around it along Shoal Creek, which should be a very nice urban oasis, and from that side of the creek the best-looking side of the library will show beautifully. That's going to be such a sweet area.

In an effort to get this thread back on track...

The last known height for this project which was 39-stories and 410', was obtained from an email that Kevin got from someone at Gensler in July, 2012.

Here's Kevin's post with the info:
http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/show...&postcount=251

From the post:

GreenWater | Block 185 Residential
410 feet to the rooftop box
380 feet to the main roof
110 feet to the podium
39 floors
436,975 gross square feet
336,600 usable square feet
