any word on Domain Towers 3 and 4 ?

Before Covid I would have thought they would have started by now unless they are still waiting on the South District improvements to complete. I am wondering if there is a delay because of the WFH effect on office space needs.

Also they were suppose to start the first stage of Burnet/Braker intersection, any word on that ?

They recently finished up the public comment period on the Burnet corridor improvements. Because that section of Burnet is TxDot’s, there’s a more involved process.

They say construction on that intersection may start “late” 2020

It's really going to stand out when it's all lit up for a night game.

Unrelated to construction but I'm in love with our theme song: https://twitter.com/LaMurgaATX/statu...31127171690498

I can imagine 23K fans singing this before, during, and after the matches. Catchy, and easy to remember. I'm ok with it, not crazy about the last phrase, A---T---X. Although its implied, would have liked to see Austin FC in there somewhere. Wonder if half the stadium will sing dale dale then the other half ATX, like Texas, Fight. That would be cool.

the other primary chant that's been floating around so far uses "Austin FC", as sung here by the Austin FC Academy kids (U14) after their first ever win:

I wonder what is going on with what is now called domain tower iii.

I was thinking maybe tower 3 and 4 would be delayed because of wfh/covid but I drove by today and they were tearing up the asphalt where the tower would go. Are they starting on it ?

The Domain Southend District site plan was approved and released on July 29. It amounts to site prep and utility work for future projects. The site plans for the two buildings are "still waiting on legal".

They have been very busy completing the south end district plan. The plan that must be done before tower 3/4 could start. The south side of 045 has completely changed as far as access to ibm loading dock, parking garage and bank. All required before tower 3 could start.

What is odd is this week's clearing of the area where Tower3 would sit. I did not think that was part of that plan but maybe it is. Before this week, that area was fenced off as they worked on the new road, loading dock for ibm, bank access and garage access. It was fenced off because that area was used to store equipment. Now the fence is down and they are tearing up the remaining asphalt.

I guess that could be part of the south district plan. Would need to pull it up and take a look. I thought that area was marked to refer to the tower3 plan. Then again they moved the big tree and that was marked to refer to the tower4 plan.

Here's a video of Domain Tower 2 that has lots of animated renderings. At the very end, they drop in Domain Tower 3 and Domain Tower 4 - blink and you'll miss it.

Domain 4 looks gigantic there. Those office floorplates would be some of the biggest in the city, no?

Once IBM's Bldg 045 is gone, that space should be turned into a nice park with pond and fountains like on the north side.

Me as a Domain North Side worker when I see a Domain South Side worker:



They're starting to rival (overtake?) the Domain North Side.

I didn't realize that they were planning to build a bridge over that retention pond.

And speaking of Domain South vs. North... My assumption is that eventually the Austin FC stadium will draw more development around it, replacing some of the industrial buildings. However, the IBM campus redevelopment (what is that called now?) will tip the scales back to that side pretty decidedly if that happens all at once. It's just a shame that the high voltage lines, substation, and massive parking lots don't allow for a cohesive development between the two mall areas and subsequent development.

Edit: This image also doesn't show whatever is being built just north of the RBFCU, between that and the retention pond immediately next to Burnet Rd.
