Cool AUSTIN | 300 Colorado | 420 FEET | 31 FLOORS | Proposed

I'll start a thread for this since we have some details.

From the Update thread:

Either way, AMLI downtown is mid-rise, so is Silicon Labs, so the views from this - 39 stories looks like - should be solid for a while to come.

Here's the direct link to the site plan. The elevations are on pages 22-25.

Looks like the west side is going to have a partial blank wall:



That's the west elevation, taken from the site plan PDF.

I like the location, and the building looks pretty good, would like to see some 3d renders.

This one may end up looking similar to 5th+West. Riverside Resources is behind this project and they are using the same design/architectural firm which designed their 5th+West tower.

Note: 5th+West is 39 stories and 459' tall. This proposal is 39 stories and 458' tall.

I hope they color the blank portion some sort of metalic tarnished bronze with a mixture of turquoise. This could be one of the classier looking buildings going up in a location that is densing up nicely. I don't hate the Hobby complex to the west since it helped make up the 80s building boom, but this might help cover it up some more. I think its time they did some exterior updating.

There was another permit filing for this project that indicated June 1, 2017 as the start of construction. No big project has ever started on time so it seems. But that's the first timeline we have.

I'm willing to bet that the state will eventually move the Hobby workers to a new building in the Capitol Complex...and will sell Hobby off for redevelopment.

This is going to be sweet. I'm looking forward to seeing renderings because I'm curious to see that mechanical penthouse (parapet) - which appears to be glass.

I wonder if that would include selling off the state garage across the street from 360 as well? That would be fantastic. I actually don't mind the Hobby Building's design, which is a relic of post-modernism, but yeah, it does create a hole in the urban fabric of the neighborhood.

I think the Hobby Building is an interesting bit of architectire, and it has enough scale to fit nicely with whatever gets built nearby. I am fairly certain that the building will be more appreciated in years to come. Getting rid of the garage adjacent to 360 would be awesome, but what about the cooling plant on top of it?

I would guess yes. There are numerous people walking to and from the parking garage and Hobby during rush hour. I'm not sure where those people park once the garage goes away. Both need to go away IMHO. The street level interaction of those blocks is entirely off putting.

As an aside, more than a year ago, a realtor friend of mine told me that he heard that the garage could be set for redevelopment as early as 2020. I'm not sure of his source. So that's all hearsay of course, but there might be something to it? Hopefully...

I hope so, also. It would be great as that area around the garage does feel like a dead zone. Has for years.
