I find it interesting that this building is exactly 2000 feet shorter than Burj Dubai.

Thanks for the fine photos, VictorF. It's nice to see a new skyscraper in the context of the other buildings around it. Also the views from different angles helps us appreciate the architecture better.

A fine addition to the skyline of Austin! (Although I confess I wish they called it The Austinian")!

Downtown still looks kinda empty. They should make some underground parking garages and build skyscrapers on those ugly parking lots.

If you are talking about the last couple of pics that's not downtown. That's the same blighted area that all cities have just outside their downtown area.

This building looks great on the skyline. I need to get on the road and go see it in person.

Beautiful building, but why The Austonian? The city's name is Austin, not Auston.
