Cool AUSTIN | Callaway House | 205 FT | 17 FLOORS | U/C | T.O.

I was looking around for some info on another project, and found this one.

It's planned for 22nd & Nueces in West Campus.

New housing complex to hit West Campus by 2013

Published 24 Aug 2011 at 10:30 AM
By Jillian Bliss

A privately owned student-housing firm is working on a plan to bring another high-rise dormitory to West Campus.

The housing firm, American Campus Communities, has scheduled completion of the Callaway House at Austin for fall 2013. The 15-story building will be located on the site of two parking lots between 22nd and 21st streets currently owned by University Baptist Church. During a University Area Partners neighborhood association meeting on Aug. 23, representatives of American Campus Communities requested support from the West Campus community for plans to turn an alley way into a tunnel, allowing vehicles to continue through a 14-foot underpass bridged by living space.

Members of the West Campus neighborhood association voted to support the design after hearing from planners, developers and property managers involved in the proposed project.

The residence hall is designed mainly for freshmen, and the plans provide for traditional student-housing amenities including a dining hall and a parking garage said Jack Tisdale, a senior partner at STG Design — an Austin firm hired to work on the building.

Cool... It may not be the best design, but glad it's adding density to the area.

I believe this is on the north side of the block that is one and a half blocks to the east of 21Rio. One block towards UT on 22nd between Nueces and San Antonio where those two parking lots were.

So drab. Bigger windows would be an easy remedy.

If this was a rendering of a hospital, I would like the design, since it's not, I don't.

well, i agree with everyone that it's a crappy design... but at least its creating more density. in the long run when the empty lots get filled in even though some designs may be crappy it will still look good overall because of its dense appeal to it. i dunno, i guess that's just the way i see it.

it's like the medical center in houston. all the buildings are unattractive, i guess cause they're medical buildings after all, but it still looks cool having a dense neighborhood like that.

Back in the day dorms were either called "houses" or "halls". Think Gryffindor House or Slytherin House. It's very retro posh.

more density shouldn't mean atrocious design

Its a "chain" of student housing developments. There's one in College Station too.

I always think of the Blues Brothers and Animal House when I hear the name.

Hey, at least it's another 200 footer. It'll probably be around 220 feet or so. 21Rio is 235 feet I believe, so it'll be pretty much level with its main roof.

That will kinda suck for those in the 21 Rio. It will block the view of the tower for them. But I guess that is what happens. lol.
