I believe this was a project description presented to the City of Austin by the developer.

http://downtownaustinblog.org/2009/1...-walk-concept/
Quote:
The Shoal Creek Walk, a proposed development project from Schlosser Development, will be a true mixed-use building complex located at the corner of West Sixth and Bowie Streets in downtown Austin, Texas. The project will closely conform to the constraints of the site which include a capital view corridor over approximately one half of the property and the Shoal Creek floodplain elevation.

These site limitations create a specific and very limited area where building improvements can be made on the site, by restricting both the building height and the overall footprint of any buildings on the site. Within those limitations, two buildings will be situated along Bowie Street, as the eastern portion of the site is within the floodplain. The high-rise building, at 350′ tall, will be located on the north portion of the property with a total of approximately 490,000 sq. ft. of office, retail and residential uses. The low-rise building will be situated at the corner of West Fifth and Bowie Streets, with primarily offices above the first level retail component for a total of about 100,000 sq. ft.

The two buildings together will provide more than 450,000 sq. ft. of office space, which is of a size able to attract a major employer and will likely be built in phases, to allow accommodation of a variety of tenant sizes. This flexibility will greatly enhance the feasibility of the project moving forward. The larger building will also have a residential component of about 90 units located above the office in what will be a narrower, residential footprint.

Because the property has a Capitol View Corridor (CVC) slicing through it, it will require the tower to be set at an angle to miss that corridor (view of the Capitol dome).

Renderings of the conceptual design that were presented to the City of Austin.

Ooo I like this one. I knew it was only a matter of time that land would be used for something. Plus it gots some height so it would be great for the density of the area. Very Kewl...

This project has gone through some changes. It was originally being called "Shoal Creek Walk" and was proposed as a 350 foot office tower with 28 floors.

Whole Foods later expressed interest in expanding their headquarters (their main building is across the street). The project now looks like it'll be 20 floors with a 4 or 5-story retail building nearby.

A Capitol View Corridor runs through the southern portion of the lot, so that is limiting the height of what can go there. The north end has no height restriction.

So this will probably be shorter than the 350 foot height we heard about at first, but it'll probably still be around 300 feet tall.

And with the size change, I'm sure the design is changing also. So I would expect something different than what those images above show.

The map in the link below shows the site. It's number 5 in the map (west side of downtown).

New rendering. Originally this tower was proposed as a 350 foot 28-story office tower, then downsized to 20 floors, and now they're planning 18 floors and 325,000 square feet. Whole Foods had expressed interest in the project for more corporate office space. It'll still be a 200 footer, and I would estimate around 225 feet basing it off the old plan. The reddish building in the rendering to the right is Whole Foods' existing headquarters and flagship grocery store.

Between 311 Bowie, Gables II and now this, the area around Lamar Blvd will be a great and substantial cluster. Such a rapidly-evolving skyline.

That'll be 7 highrises within 1,200 feet of each other that did not exist before 2004. And 5 of them are residential.

Spring - 427 FEET - 42 FLOORS
311 Bowie - 423 FEET - 37 FLOORS
The Monarch - 323 FEET - 29 FLOORS
Shoal Creek Walk - 225 FEET - 18 FLOORS
Gables Residential II - 223 FEET - 18 FLOORS
Austin City Lofts - 180 FEET - 14 FLOORS
Whole Foods Headquarters - 136 FEET - 8 FLOORS

And there are 7 more highrises planned just east of there.

I love the design of the new rendering even though it has been downsized.

This project has been through many changes. It was originally planned as a 350 foot office tower with 28 floors. It was then scaled down to 20 floors and then again to 15 floors. Then again to 18 floors. Now they're filing for their third site plan with a 24-story design that seems to be between 300 to 320 feet tall.

Proposed office tower near Whole Foods back on track

Robert Grattan
Staff Writer-
Austin Business Journal

Schlosser Development Corp.’s office tower at 836 W. Sixth St. is back on track after being derailed twice in the last decade.

Plans would put 430,400 square feet of office space, 44,613 square feet of retail and 1,421 underground parking spaces on the lot to the east of Whole Foods Market Inc.’s headquarters. The building is one of the few office projects taking shape in the midst of several hotel and residential projects underway downtown.
Here are the renderings they used during their presentation before the planning commission on March 26.



The taller building to the left is The Monarch. That building is 323 feet tall. The new office building seems to be close to The Monarch's height.


The red triangle through the site is showing where the Capitol View Corridor slices through the property. The property also borders one of Austin's two downtown creeks as the project's name suggests. The new tower is shown to the left of the red triangle. The building to the right in the foreground is Spring. That building is 427 feet tall. The shorter L shaped midrise to the left is Whole Foods' world headquarters. It is 136 feet tall. The other skinny midrise shown to the right of the triangle is Austin City Lofts, which is 180 feet tall.

This is the best design that they've had by far and will make a great addition to downtown.
