Most of Austin's tallest projects don't get posted about in this thread. But to sum it up, we now have over 40 projects proposed or U/C that are between 300' and 850'. It's hard to comprehend that many towers going up in addition to what has already been built during the past several years.

Yeah this thread isn’t updated as much as the other Austin threads, but we have a ton of major projects underway. Austin is booming!

Since this thread doesn't get updated much, here's a general update by the numbers. I'm almost ready to post my final Tallest Austin Projects list of the year in the sticky development links thread in the Austin subforum. But I'm waiting for height info on three projects that I will add to the list once I have it, and I'm also waiting for two more significant groundbreakings that could happen in December. The fact that we have 41 projects in the works that are between 300' and 850' is amazing for a metro of 2.2 million. That total only includes projects announced by developers and/or have had city documents/permits filed. It doesn't include planned projects like the Railyard condos site towers and the Brackenridge campus redevelopment site towers. Of course nobody including me expects all 41 to be built. But more than 1/3 of them (14) have already broken ground. This is all on top of what has already been built over the past several years.

Yet another 600+ footer for downtown Austin. This one is all office (41 floors & 634'). It's being called: Tower 5c (I assume that is for its location at 5th and Colorado).

Now that is sexy! I like how it isn’t another asymmetrical geometric box pile. The crown is going to really stand out and become a recognizable landmark.

Just wondering, are all of these towers going to be built in/near downtown or other areas of the city as well?

Phew! I just went through this thread and I have to say, we have a ton of construction cranes in Nashville but Austin is just on another level in that regard, blowing away all the competition in terms of both height and quality. Just beautiful!!

Three of the 42 I counted are being developed for the Domain/Broadmoor area in north Austin. So 39 are downtown. Fourteen of the 42 have broken ground which is 1/3 of them.

Here's a photo taken by clayton_rogue and posted in the West Campus thread in the Austin subforum about a week ago. It's looking north away from downtown towards campus. The view now has 21 cranes I believe with around 15 more in downtown proper in the opposite direction.

That’s a beautiful tower

Why can’t nyc and especially Brooklyn get such nice designs?

Wow! At this rate of construction and new projects it seems Austin's CBD will have just as many towers as Dallas's and Houston's CBD. Or am I jumping the gun? That panoramic shot you posted is gorgeous by the way.

Outside of the Texas 4, Nashville is definitely a city that I keep up with. Impressive stuff you guys got going up there.

This one almost looks unreal. It looks like some Southeast Asia city with the hills shown.

I used to live in the treed area on the bottom left. My mom grew up in that same area. It is called Travis Heights. It used to be pretty middle class and suburban, but now has gentrified to the point to where when I move back, it’ll be hard to afford this area. I think the lots now are starting at about $500 k with a hundred year old run down house. They are now demoing those houses to build million dollar houses, thus gentrification.

Yeah that's the downside of gentrification. The increased expense and the pricing out of former residents. I wouldn't be surprised to see highrises start popping up on the other side of the river. That is if it hasn't started happening already.
