Austin's proposed tallest (in 4 yrs)

Postby I45Tex » 09 Aug 2017 11:08

Been seeing features online about 600 Guadalupe (downtown block bounded by 6th, Guadalupe, 7th, and San Antonio). Initial proposal has ground floor retail with 500Ksf office below 300+ luxury apartments, but if they increase either component then the floor count could increase from 62 into the "mid-70s." Have yet to see a filing with the aviation authorities.

Austin Has the bet Downtown of all the Texaplex cities.
This will only make it better.

Oh, I don't know... :)

San Antonio has been rockin' a downtown gathering place for almost 300 years; it's unlike any other, and it's better.

I sure do like the surge in Austin's skyline! I'd rather see a spire than a flattop, though.

Update - the developers asked the FAA for 847’ feet above grade. A study is being conducted since anything above 499’ would be an obstruction to air navigation under the Code of Federal Regulations Section 77.17 (a) (1)

(But never fear, tamtagon, someone in SA has asked for a 900’ Ferris wheel...)

Is this tower going to be a go? Can't find any additional info on it.
