WOW! I like it.

With regard to its construction start date, Robert Lee has already indicated it will be in the next cycle. Thus, if built, probably not until the later part of 2017 or early 2018.

I think that is all residential, where is the Class A? There are balconies all around on every floor. That would be highly unlikely for Class A. I like that the sloped south side has balconies down the slope and that the building narrows to the west allowing all those balconies views of town lake and hill country.

That makes me think this is not the final rendering. Since this won't be starting anytime soon, they may have included office in the site plan in case they decide to add office space later.

Well, I was close on my estimation of the height...

They posted the site plan today. The elevations are on pages 19 and 20.

ftp://ftp.ci.austin.tx.us/ATD_AULCC/...enue_PLANS.pdf

The heights are:

370 feet to the high roof
360 feet to the low roof
350 feet to the 33rd (top floor). There's also a 33rd floor setback on the building's north side at that height.

This building is going to be soooo fine.

Woo! I'm excited for this one.

The developer has also updated their webpage for the project.

That is going to be one hot pool deck, with that huge south facing mirror pointing down at the ants...I mean swimmers.

Hopefully this won't become too much off a problem. The Vdara Hotel in Las Vegas is known for it's "death ray" that causes severe burns in the pool area due to the refraction of the rays, and I suppose that could occur with this one too if the angles line up. Something to keep an eye on.

I love this design!! I love the blue glass and the sharp angle that differentiates it. Definitely an upgrade from that rough sketch that was attached to the article when it was announced a couple years back. Skyhouse, 70 Rainey, and this one will all look pretty cool clustered together. It looks like units on 2-9 will have 9-foot ceilings and the rest will have 11 ft ceilings. My only question is why aren't they masking the parking garage on the West elevation? I love what they did on all the other sides, but why leave it exposed to the West.

The West side of the parking garage will only be visible to people inside Skyhouse's parking garage. At least this will block most of the East side of Skyhouse's garage.

I hope this tower and 70 Rainey come to fruition. They will be a very nice additions to this part of downtown and the skyline in general. Especially since they will be so prominent from IH-35. Now, I just with Manchester didn't screw with the original Fairmont design. Oh, well...

I think it would be a bigger problem if this faced West and was unobstructed. Also, it looks like the angle is slight enough that any effect on the pool deck would be minimal, and only certain times of the day. That being said, let's hope it doesn't melt any luxury cars
