FAA permits are better than nothing, but I don't put too much confidence in them. They tend to over estimate/exaggurate the true height to add a buffer of comfort incase the project does gain a bit more height. I would always refer to the building permits/site plans/elevations for the true number. In this case, the height we've seen is 1,022 feet with 73 floors.

The crane height will be over 1,200 feet. These are luffing cranes which explains why they're so high over the roof of the building.

Are there any renderings or anything that will show what the Austin skyline will look like in a few years with all of these new towers going up? Would love to see a rendering.

Not that I know of. But forum member Studioinnovatus did this one showing the four tallest projects in the northern half of the Rainey District. Three of the four have started. There are several more in the southern half as well but not shown.

It’s going to look like a completely different city and definitely on its way to best skyline in Texas title.

The site has exceptional ERC as-of-right zoning designation that will allow for high-density mixed-use development.

The site has extremely dense right-of-zoning designations that will allow for more than 2 MSF of mixed-use redevelopment.

The project will feature multifamily, office, and retail located along the Project Connect light rail line.

This development is outside of downtown and there are many other dense projects outside of downtown too.

But this is not particular to just Austin, Dallas and Houston have been doing dense developments all throughout their cores for decades now.

DFW has this type of development all over the Metroplex and that's been the case for several years now. This is actually lower density than many sites around DFW.

Yeah Dallas and Houston both get way more of this type of development than any other TX cities. Austin's impressive too but it's playing catchup to DFW and HOU in this department. They've been at it for decades now. Houston's westside is really infilling and building up tremendously with this sort of development.

That may be true but Dallas and Houston sprawl out way more than Austin. Austin has a unique opportunity as being the baby to build out correctly and learn from the mistakes of it’s bigger brothers.

For sure, I get that but we’re not talking about sprawl IMO. As it is, DFW and HOU have denser sprawl patterns than the ATX as it is even though DFW and HOU sprawl more. There isn’t any need to be bringing sprawl up though since we’re more focused on the infill and dense urban developments within the city’s central core area in this thread. We’re specifically talking about central core city developments.

For example, in Houston you have East River, which is arguably the single largest infill development in all of TX right now. It’ll practically create an entirely new dense and urban neighborhood in the core of the city by scratch. You have Hines’ medical village, which is nearly as large as East River. You have TMC3. Autry Park. Regent Square. BLVD Place. The massive developments on Westheimer in Uptown near 610. The Ion District. Museo Plaza. And there are dozens of others taking shape right now. Etc. This has been going on for decades and has only accelerated even more in the past 12 or so years.

These are all big time dense infill developments. I know that Dallas has had plenty of these as well.

We’re just now beginning to see more of this in Austin, which is great because it’ll expand the core with density and urban continuity and will increase the total area of the urban core. All 3 cities have a lot of neat things going on right now.

Hit pause at 2:16 to get the full scope of the East River Megadevelopment in Houston. And this is just one of several massive infill projects taking shape in Houston right now.

For real.

There isn’t another metro of 2.4 million in the US with a Supertall (currently U/C). And there may be another on the way after that. Possibly 2 others if that railyard condos ground moves forward with their plans. Austin’s skyline now far exceeds that of a metro of 2.4 million people, at least by US standards imo.

Now what I wanna see is the rail system and subway start construction, the airport go from small hub to major big time hub, and the city start to expand its urban core with more dense infill developments that stretch the core further out.

As Austin continues to have this large amount of growth and tries to plan it well, I hope Austin will also work to consider the cost of living, keep cost of living down and do what it can to address homelessness and build the homeless shelters that will be needed, while also addressing drug addiction and crime.
