  1. Austin kicking it up a notch. This is taller than any highrise built in Texas since the 80's, and mixed-use on this scale is not something I think we've ever seen in this state. https://www.bizjournals.com/austin/news/2017/08/04/austins-skyline-to-reach-new-heights-high-rise.html
  2. Hines announces timber office project in Austin Katherine Feser Aug. 25, 2021Updated: Aug. 25, 2021 2:40 p.m. Hines is developing T3 Eastside at 1200 E. 4th St. in Austin. It's the company's first Class-A timber project with a residential component. Hines Houston-based Hines announced it would build its first timber office project in Texas. T3 Eastside, in Austin, will have 92,000 square feet of office space and 9,200 square feet of residential space. The project, a Hines eco-minded initiative named for timber, transit and technology, will be developed at 1200 E. 4th St. and include 15 loft-style units with a historical industrial design. It is among 16 T3 office projects for Hines and is the first to be designed with a residential component, according to John Mooz, senior managing director at Hines. The construction method incorporates wood products generated from fast growing trees. T3 Eastside, which is accessible to downtown by rail, is the first project in Austin for Hines in more than 40 years. Several additional projects across various sectors will be announced in the coming months. JLL is marketing the space to tenants in creative industries such as technology, advertising, media, information and biotechnology/life sciences. “T3 Eastside is designed to accommodate needs of firms who seek creative-class workers and residents by delivering a unique product and location while offering proximity to living, dining, entertainment and easy access to transit while honoring the unique artistic spirit of the neighborhood,” Philip Croker, senior managing director at Hines and co-Austin city head, said in an announcement. The building will feature areas for collaboration, a rooftop patio, private outdoor balconies for tenants, shared conference space, a fitness center and bike storage facilities. Austin's office vacancy rose to 16.9 percent in the second quarter as 1.9 million square feet of office space was completed in the first half of the year, according to JLL. Occupancy was 10.6 percent in the year-ago quarter. Another 4.2 million square feet is under construction in the Austin area. Hines has developed T3 projects in cities such as Minneapolis, Atlanta, Denver, Toronto and Melbourne, Australia. https://www.houstonchronicle.com/business/real-estate/article/Hines-launches-timber-office-project-in-Austin-16411232.php

  9. Austin (Travis County) — Plans regarding the construction of a 50-story office tower in downtown with the working name Fourth & Brazos continue to develop. The Design Commission was expected to vote on a density bonus for the project, but their Oct. 25 meeting was postponed due to a lack of quorum. VBX first reported on the project in January of 2020 when Cielo Property Group closed on a deal to acquire the Brazos Lofts at the southeast corner of Brazos and East 5th streets in hopes of redeveloping the site with a tower development. The project is located at 216 East 4th Street which is currently home to the 35,000-square-foot Brazos Hall and a small office building. According to a memorandum submitted to the commission last month, the proposed 50-story tower would have a project area of 813,000 square feet on a lot area of 35,371 square feet. The building height, (705 feet), would include 18 levels of above grade parking. The tower would have 765,000 square feet of office space and 48,000 square feet of retail space. Cielo is requesting a Floor-to-Area ratio (FAR) of 23:1. The maximum allowed under the current zoning is 8:1. This is an increase in FAR of 15:1 (530,565 SF). A ground floor site plan shows four retail/restaurant areas near the tower’s entrance lobbies. A pedestrian paseo would split the building from East Fourth Street north to the alley between the southern and northern half of the block. The project will also include outdoor plaza space at the ground level in hopes of enticing the public to visit and adding open space to downtown, according to the application. The outdoor space will employ “pedestrian-friendly natural materials as well as greenery at the street level to promote Austin’s unique character and build a strong connection between the built environment and the outdoors.” The Fourth & Brazos tower would also benefit from Capital Metro’s plan to construct the 8.2-mile Blue Line, a light rail transit corridor that will be routed down 4th Street directly in front of the building. The project team consists of the local design studio Perkins & Will, Austin-based Michael Hsu Office of Architecture, Austin-based civil engineers Garza EMC and landscape architects at Ten Eyck, also out of Austin. Richard T. Suttle, Jr. with the law firm Armbrust & Brown, PLLC is representing the project to the commission. https://www.virtualbx.com/construction-preview/austin-cielo-properties-proposing-to-develop-downtown-50-story-office-tower/

  11. Wow! Great looking building. I can see the link with the photos but when I attach it the subscription requirement shows. GRRR. They are saying it'll be the tallest residential west of the Mississippi. Shouldn't we have that? http://m.statesman.com http://www.mystatesman.com/news/business/seaholm-areas-rebirth-to-include-austins-tallest-t/nksBg/

  13. MLS’ Columbus Crew seem intent on moving to Austin in time for 2019 season. While it was stated move would occur “if a stadium deal couldn’t be reached in Columbus,” owner Anthony Precourt has already conducted negotiations with Austin officials, surveyed the market, trademarked names (Austin FC & Austin Athletic), hired PR firms locally and begun a social media campaign aimed at the Austin market (mls2atx.com). Simply put, these moves don’t sound like he wants to stay in Columbus. http://www.dispatch.com/sports/20171016/crew-sc-owner-considering-moving-team-to-austin-texas Stadium location options being looked at (doubtful these happen) http://www.statesman.com/sports/soccer/mls-columbus-crew-intends-move-austin-2019-barring-stadium-deal/gXduiAnet8xFjLuFuUGWPP/ On stadium financing...
  14. Developer: Aspen Heights Architect: Rhode Partners Type: Residential Location: 8th and Nueces, NE Corner Construction Timeline: Summer 2014 Start Date - 1Q 2016 Completion Full Article: http://www.bizjournals.com/austin/blog/real-estate/2014/04/another-austin-luxuryhigh-rise-apartment-project.html Aspen Heights, an Austin-based student housing developer, will break ground this summer on a high-rise multifamily project at the northeast corner of West Eighth and Nueces streets. The project will also be called Aspen Heights and will include 196 units with a rooftop pool, fitness center and dog park. It's scheduled to be finished by the first quarter of 2016. The 22-story project is the company’s first foray into conventional multifamily housing, though CEO and Founder Greg Henry has a history of working on various real estate developments dating back to his career in Arkansas.
  15. I know this is a Houston forum, but I didn't see any topic about the ongoing saga of Austin getting light rail (although they're calling it urban rail b/c it'll share the road w/ cars while in downtown). http://impactnews.com/austin-metro/central-austin/austins-urban-rail-plan-could-cost-1.4-billion/ Here's some more literature that I've found: http://www.austinchronicle.com/news/2013-12-13/urban-rail-which-way-to-connect/ http://www.austinchronicle.com/news/2014-04-18/project-connect-central-corridor-options/ Ben Wear does a good as the transportation writer for the Statesman and I'm sure he has lots of articles about this. However, ever since the pay-wall went up for that paper's site, I haven't been able to read any of his stuff. Here's another resource: http://projectconnect.com/
  16. From the Austin Business Journal. I like the looks of this, and it would be gorgeous in Houston! I apologize if this is already listed. http://www.bizjournals.com/austin/blog/real-estate/2014/05/39-story-downtown-tower-on-austin-city-councils.html
