Not sure it ever really had any life. Maybe not dead, but certainly missing.

If you read further in the article, the firm's chief executive says "this project is done and ready to go". He also says that the project has secured financing already. This is getting VERY interesting!!

I read this on the digital component of the SA Express News, and I believe the article will be printed on tomorrows printed edition of the SA Express News.

Now that rendering is pretty damn awesome. Added floors I didn't see coming either. Downtown sure is getting busy.

Maybe it's an early rendering? It's a year out so maybe they had to change the design for the offices.

It was 30 originally. I changed it today to 32 because that's what's today's article states. That the developer added more residential units and office to the tower. As Jaga stated, this could be the 30 story version.

The view of the Tower Life Building is gonna be blocked by that?!

At least it will only be from the southwest angle.

I feel ya. But maybe they'll change the design a little since now it's gonna be a little taller. If not I don't hate it. It's just basic.

Kind of reminds me of a mix of the Austin's Seaholm residences and Austin Proper towers. Seaholm turned out better than expected....

What do you think the elevation will be based on scaled drawing +2 floors?

+400 ft?

I think it will definitely be a 400 footer. Kind of a slap in the face to the Frost Tower though, lol.

It could push 400'. I think it will be between 375' and 415' when all said is done. Residential towers are typically to 10'-12' per residential floor. Podium parking is usually in the neighborhood of 9' per level.

True, i only say that because the roof of Tower Life is about '404, and the rendering currently puts it there. I'm totally fine with whatever height we get
