Austin | 2100 Nueces | Residential | 175' | ~17 Floors | Proposed

As far as I can tell, this is yet another West Campus project that has not been mentioned yet. West Campus is confusing because there are so many similar projects so close together.

The attachment to the site plan filed on 12/22 says it's 175' with 4 floors of parking and 15 floors of apartments. So it appears at least two of the parking levels will be underground.

Site Plan:
https://abc.austintexas.gov/web/perm...ertyrsn=151029

Drawings posted yesterday from the city's AULCC ftp site:

The architect is the Urban Design Group PC:

Another one? Wow! West Campus is getting dense. Any chance the overlay is adjusted so it doesn't become 200 ft city. Get some height variation in there and it'll become a second skyline. In fact, it's already getting there when I look at it across 5th street.

It would be cool to see something that stands out up there. I've noticed the cranes at night in West Campus from my neighborhood, so something a little taller would definitely stand out in that view. It's nothing spectacular, but a few of the buildings do show up. Spring and The Bowie show up on that street.

With the arbitrary cap that the overlay places on West Campus, idk if we'll get to see that sort of building height diversity. Many developers are just building to the limit of the overlay, which makes me believe some would go even taller if they could.

I'm surprised that developers haven't pushed harder to get exceptions to the magical 175' number. There have only been a handful attempts, and they haven't been for anything too much higher than 175'. I'm guessing they just want to get their projects built ASAP (which they have been doing), and not spend months arguing with the city for a few more floors.

Well, it might not even need to be the height of Spring or The Bowie since the sea level elevation in West Campus is about 100 to 120 feet higher than it is in downtown where those buildings are. Before a few of the towers in downtown were built, there were a couple of places where I could see the Dobie Center and UT Tower. So something in the area of 300 feet would likely show up pretty prominently there.
