We could either have the single tallest building in the world, or have 37 100ft buildings throughout the city, how cool would that be?!

A look into the future if I-35 is swapped with SH-130 tolls

Though reality is its never going to happen and thank goodness too. I just thought it was pretty funny looking at that picture. Good job Kevin.

A CVC height determination request was filed today for 416 W. 11th Street. The site is currently a surface parking lot:

I believe that's the site for the new PTA building.

Well, that's not very exciting. But it makes sense because the site is not well suited for a residential building because it is directly across the street from the Travis Co. courthouse and criminal justice center. And that less than desirable view will not be going away any time soon.

The new PTA building's address will be 408 West 11th, however the parking lot at 416 West 11th is directly adjacent so yes this is probably for the new, larger PTA building. Marketing flyer from Oxford's website is below:

Now that The Thinkery is finished, I wonder how long before the 2nd Street Austin Children's Museum is sold, demolished, and redeveloped. That's a prime location.

World Class Capital, the ones behind 99 Trinity Tower, had filed for permits to develop the site. But they later withdrew the requests prior to submitting the site plan for 99 Trinity. I suspect they decided to focus on 99 Trinity instead.
