AUSTIN | Project Updates Thread Part II
 
Wow, it took us seven years, but we're approaching 10,000 posts on our first Update Thread so it's time to start fresh.

You may find a link to the old thread here (soon to be edited by Kevin after archived)

Well, we started in '06 with an Andrews Urban/Novare Group project, let's do the same here:

The last time I started a boom thread, it only felt like we were in a boom.. As such, I'm sure that many of you have spied some projects that I've left off such as Magellan's 5th and Brazos (sweet project), SoCo, SoLa, NoLa, NoBur, UNO, the list goes on. Please snap some pics, throw up a rendering, and let the world know what's happening in Austin. And if anybody even hints at over building, please remind them that when family formation > permits being pulled = lovin life.

Lastly, we all know that we have to get more people in and around downtown, and not while lugging individual 3-5 thousand pound machines along with them, so say hello to our little friends:

Launching in '14, Bus Rapid Transit

http://i1373.photobucket.com/albums/...psf5c236b0.jpg


And launching today: B-cycle. Right after I took this photo, a group of folks came running up, swiping/singing and riding off. Can't wait till these things are everywhere!!

Nice first post to kick off the next 10,000. But why would I want to hug Mayor Pro Tem Sheryl Cole?

Mopacs Dec 22, 2013 1:00 AM

Great post! Really like the accompanying current site photos.

Because she's amazing. Now my question is why in 2014 are people sneaking into my condo bldg and leaving this?

It's amazing that they even get enough advertisers to justify publication.

I hate all of the street abbreviations (SoCo, etc), but at least I know what they are. WTF is UNO?

Thanks for the photos!

University Neighborhood Overlay is the only thing I can come up with.

It's funny that Sears has a front cover ad. No wonder nobody shops there any more.

DoubleC Dec 23, 2013 7:03 AM

Good golly, so many cranes and projects going up; we didn't see this much ten years ago!

I also have to say that Austin sort of reminds me of Vienna, seeing the bike share program at the end of your photos (can't put it into words).

My camera has been acting up. I can't get it to zoom in or out and I can't change the settings, so I can't adjust for light.

Thanks for all the work!

The picture of the project off (east?) 6th, looks like a chicago hood'.

This lot behind the IHOP is some prime real estate. This has got to be the last significant piece of land in the Rainey area that doesn't have something planned for it.

Looks like 35 was practically deserted on that pic of the I35 bridge over the river. What time was that picture taken? I think I 'll plan my next trip downtown whatever time that was...and day of week.

There were probably multi-car pileups in both directions just out of view that were blocking traffic.:)

Hehehe, that's what I was thinking, or some pretty good photo editing:haha:

jtown,man Dec 24, 2013 7:39 AM

Hey I did a quick guestimate on the amount of feet being built in Austin as far as UC buildings over 100ft. I could be off by like..600ft or so but it looks like something around 3,700 ft all together.

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

Cool, yeah I gathered up on what I could think of as well and got 3,248ft. Though I wanted to include the Broadstone on the Lake project, but wasn't sure if that exceed 100ft. or not so I didn't include it. Btw I also included The Skyhouse, and Gables Park Tower as well.
