TOWERS.net has a blog post about this project and 705 East. Their new project posts often get posted shortly after new project info is posted on SSP.

Some info was added to the site plan:

Quote:
On May 4, 2017 a rezoning application was filed under
City Case No. C14-2017-0062 to rezone the Property from CS to CBD. Development intensity
for the Project will be achieved using either the existing City of Austin Development Bonus
Program, or rezoning the Property to Central Business District ("CBD"). The Project shall not
exceed a maximum building coverage of 100%, a maximum impervious coverage of 100%, and
a maximum building height of 45-stories. The nature of the permit sought at this point is the
development plan and includes all permits required to commence/complete work on the Project.
This drawing was also added. The site data table on the right states "MAXIMUM BUILDING HEIGHT 45 STORIES".

The Planning Commission takes up the zoning change request Tuesday 06/27. Staff recommends approval. There is no new building info, just better maps. The 705 East zoning change request is still pending but will be on the block just west of Sabine.

The Planning Commission approved the zoning change to CBD. Now we wait.

Velocity Tower is an investment opportunity located in the heart of Austin, Texas. The two sites, which currently house Velocity Credit Union’s headquarters and main branch, are positioned on a combined 2.4 acres in Austin’s Central Business District near the 11th Street and Red River intersection. The property’s potential to house over 800,000 SF of office, residential and/or hotel developments makes it a unique large-scale mixed use development opportunity in the CBD.

Great find. It's just a vision, but a nice vision at that. The site plan was CC Rejected months ago and has not been updated. I don't know why one was filed if there was no specific project lined up.

Yep. Something like that would be an excellent contrast to the Alexan.

That looks to be only around 400 feet, maybe even a bit less. 45 floors would suggest at least 450 feet and probably pushing 500. I really like that design. I would love for Austin to get something like that. And please, keep the greenery on it.

I think this particular design might be a little more than just a sketch-rendering vision. Remember our Gensler friend George Blume, well through his Instagram you can find another Gensler architect named Gerardo Gandy and check out the tower in the far left corner. Had actually meant to post this in the update thread as this looked like a design we hadn't seen before. The second I saw this sketch, I remembered it. There's also another model that doesn't remind me of anything that's surfaced... in the back and on the right side.

The one behind and to the right looks like 600 Guadalupe. I'm with you on all the others though, no idea...

There are some Domain buildings there, a couple 3rd + Shoals, 600 Guad and this one. There appears to be an Austin Proper model even though that's not a Gensler product. The one I don't know about it the tall one under the sitter's toes.

I think the smaller buildings are Domain 11 & 12 with Third & Shoal in the back ground.

The one beneath his toes could be the old design for the last block of the green water development viewed as if from the northwest.

That could be. The Austin Properish one also looks like an older version of Block 185.
