the spoilers are awesome because at first one would say, "oh but this is austin wishful thinking." but then you click on the spoilers and whaddaya know, nearly half the proposed buildings are already under construction.

Thank you. One thing I am not sure of though. Should I include the Circuit of the Americas?

I am trying to only put stuff that is like 100 feet minimum, and the tower at COTA is like 280 feet. And not sure how tall the grand stands and pit building are, but in the photos of the construction they are doing they look massive. So maybe?

I am trying to only put stuff that is like 100 feet minimum, and the tower at COTA is well over that. And not sure how tall the grand stands and pit building are, but in the photos of the construction they are doing they look massive. So maybe?
ah what the hell! why not? that way people can really see what's really going down in Texas.

Lol. The tallest thing in the Under Construction section will be the racetrack, followed by a UT dorm.

There was an article in the Austin Business Journal -

Downtown to bloom (again)
Four big projects slated for ‘Market District’
Premium content from Austin Business Journal by Vicky Garza, Staff Writer
Friday, April 13, 2012

You could only read the first paragraph at the ABJ, but I found the entire article reprinted on J B Goodwin Realtor's website.

Quote:
311 Bowie

The tallest project planned for the area will be south of the new Whole Foods offices, on about one acre, between the Tiniest Bar in Texas and Gables West Avenue.

Endeavor Real Estate Group and Lynd Co. are planning a 35-story building with 42,586 square feet of office space, 3,385 square feet of retail and 359 apartments. Developers had faced some challenges in 2011 because of the Heritage Tree Ordinance, but the site plan recently filed with the city states that they had received a variance to remove one tree that is dying and a permit to move another elsewhere on the property.

The project is still undergoing the city’s site plan review process.
So I guess while it's not officially approved yet, it isn't dead, either.

wwmiv - the rendering of the retail project you asked about is located at 405 N.Lamar and is also mentioned in the above story.

Thats great, thanks for the update Lonestar, that area is going to be a very nice area of Downtown, but then again it seems like most of Downtown's districts are going to be nice and impressive in their own right. Market District, Waterfront District, Rainey Street District, Warehouse District will continue to improve as well as 6th and Red River Streets in the coming years. I guess the areas that will be left for improvement will be the area surrounding the capital and if im not mistaken the state still wants to build up those areas. Im sure it may be awhile but its a step in the right direction.

Lol, NYC. I hope it is OK, I added the one from the School for the Deaf to the top of my list. I love them!

The BJ will not be necessary. Maybe I could pass your generous offer to wwmiv?

Wait a minute. What is that really tall pink line north of Frost Tower?

Also, the building south of Lady Bird Lake is missing from your list. I'm guessing that's Aquaterra? And you might want to update your rendering for Seaholm. http://seaholm.info/

The Whitney Printing Tower may just be my favorite development under construction right now. It's not huge; it's just a solid project in a key area of downtown. And it's apartments, which makes it even cooler. The Gables Park Plaza Tower is definitely up there with it, though.

The pink line by the Frost will be the T.Stacy tower, if built it would be 830 ft. tall.

thanks NYC_Longhorn! i always wanted to do some renderings on google sketchup but i feel like i should get paid for it if i'm gonna do it. so its always awesome when someone posts something like it. but who knows? maybe i'll get very bored one of these days with so much time in my hands and i'll try to put all the buildings in there with my limited to near non-existent architectural skills.

i'm sure the narrow lines don't give you a good perspective on just how dense downtown will get, but it does give you an awesome idea of how tall it will be. especially those twin towers! they're gonna make austin look mighty impressive.
