Lincoln Property Co's 6 X Guadalupe (pronounced "Sixth and Guadalupe"), this Ryan Cos BBVA tower, and current Austin tallest The Independent all have flat boxy tops. Unless their architects change that, they will all just be backdrops to the Railyard proposal (assuming it goes ahead) --

I always feel like something is missing from the Austin skyline. Maybe that Railyard proposal would help but I'm not sure.

That's great news for them!

I still don't agree about Austin 'out shinning Houston/Dallas' though..haha, but we're all on the same team, and Texas, as a whole, is doing tremendously well!

I'm aware of the inferiority complex :lol: (Not that I view Dallas as superior, but it does feel like other people do seem to have some sort of complex with Dallas).

Looks like the article basically got the requested building height right for that 98 Red River site.

(If you go that FAA link, look closely haha. Someone accidentally put Dallas in there. It's clearly this project, though, with correct county and project names also there. And, the map.)

On that note, downtown Austin has 12 buildings over 350 feet tall currently under construction.

Greater downtown Dallas (CBD and Uptown) has added/is adding 13 such buildings, since 1990 (plus another 1 nearby, The Crossing).

FWIW, in the same 30 year period, greater downtown Houston (CBD and Midtown) have added/is adding 19 such buildings (plus another 10 in the nearby Texas Medical Center and another 5 in the nearby Montrose/River Oaks area).
