These are via the LGA visual route approach. Left hand side of the plane. One of the best landing views out there, IMO.

Even better when at times, it'll come from the North and head South via the Hudson, all the while left-hand side of the plane, go by Staten Island, turn, and than go along the East River and eventually land at Laguardia. If you get that plane trajectory, its epic.

Adelaide is probably the only city in the world that has its downtown completely separated from the rest of the city by a park. I'm not sure if that was a good idea.

When are they going to develop the other side of lake Travis? That parking garage seems a waste of space

That's the Colorado River that flows through downtown. That portion of it is known as Lady Bird Lake, or Town Lake, depending on who you ask. Lake Travis is our big resevoir lake 20 miles upstream. Between Lake Travis and Town Lake is Lake Austin. They're all part of the Colorado River, and were formed with a series of dams.

Anyway, the parking garage is only about 6 years old, so it's unlikely to be going anywhere anytime soon. The Hyatt Hotel facing the river next to it built it on what was their parking lot. The other tall building to the left of the hotel is a residential building built in 2015. That whole area likely will see more buildings. I've seen artists renderings showing up to 20 mid to high rises in that area, but there's nothing specific yet being proposed. There's also another 15-story office building built at the moment just off to the lefthand side of that photo. You can see its triangular construction site.

The biggest project in this area will be the redevelopment of the 20 acre Austin American-Statesman site. In the photo, it's the big office and warehouse building hugging the shoreline. The newspaper is planning to redevelop its site with 3 1/2 million square feet of office, residential, hotel, and retail space, plus, it'll be tripling the amount of public space available there now. Austin's hike & bike trail hugs the shoreline and runs along the site. In the 80s, the American-Statesman also donated some of their land for a public space to view Austin's Mexican Free-tailed bats, which fly out from the Congress Avenue bridge during the warm months. The plan is to expand that further and to also have an extension to the existing boardwalk, which connects to the hike & bike trail, and also a new pedestrian bridge across the river. The development itself would have 6 towers. Based on the massings, the heights would be 215 feet to 525 feet. To put that into perspective, the tallest office building there would be taller than the Frost Bank Tower, which is 516 feet. It's still very early in development, and they haven't even filed anything yet with the city. I think they're still shopping for developers.

We have a thread on the development blow, and you can also read about it in the 2nd link on, which has all the renderings of the project we've seen so far, plus some more of that overall area.

Digging Into the Blockbuster Plan for the Austin American-Statesman Site

This last link is to the article at for RiverSouth, the 15-story office building I mentioned above. Once complete, this will actually be the tallest building in South Austin, and the tallest between Austin and San Antonio, at least until the Statesman site is redeveloped.

There was also this rendering, and a few more showing a design that Gensler did. It included building an arena.
