I like the building. Maybe is not the best concept or design but, I think is a good addition to the Austin's Skyline.

True, around Austin people either like it or hate it. Personally I love it, it's something unique to Austin and will also have a big impact on the skyline as well.

A more recent update, I'd say it's officially U/C!

Nice!

Austin's skyline has certainly changed a lot in the last few years. I used to go several times a year some time ago. At that time the tallest building was Frost Bank Tower. Now it is not even visible in the sketch of the city's skyline shown above.

Last time I visited the city was in 2009 when the Austonian was under construction. I hope to go back sometime in the future. I have several very good friends living there.

Cheers

The parking podium seriously cheapens the design. I hope they wrap it a lot better than in the renders above. Congrats to Austin for the height though.
