Awesome, glad to see downtown Austin losing a lot of its crappy parking lots.

Crane construction from July 5 and 6.

















Stringing the suspension cables for the boom.



Attaching the cables.







Suspension cables attached.





Can you guess what this piece is?



It's the car the hook rides on.





The boom waiting to go up.



They got my hopes up when they started hooking it up, but they were only lifting it over the fence for the night.



After I saw this I knew they were done for the day.

First column is up! And some more foundation work. You can see it via the JW Marriott construction cam on the left side of the image.

but I guess it kills a parking lot.

3.5/10 low grade office park design, not Austin worthy

I agree that the raised parking garage could have been put completely underground but that would have cost more money. You know how companies are doing what they can to shave off as much of the cost as they can get away with but the tower design looks pretty nice IMO. The glass color is really nice and the top will light up. It may not be that tall, only a 400 footer, (10 years ago we would have been jumping up and down in excitement over a 400 footer), now that's all we seem to get but I'm not complaining. 400 footers do a great job filling in the skyline with density.

It certainly is not a low grade office park design. In Austin we don't have any office park towers over 12 floors, except for one 15 floor office building way up on the northwest edge of Austin. Most office park buildings in Austin are mostly in the 5 to 10 floor range due to zoning regulations.

I think it's a good thing for now because it keeps the tall towers built Downtown. Eventually we will have to develop highrise nodes in other areas of the city such as the Domain. I can see one for the I-35/290/71 interchange since there's already a grouping of buildings, with a 22 floor Omni and 2 others which are 10 floors.

It's the building with the red crane to the left of the Frost Bank Tower.

It's going to block the view of the Frost Bank Tower from this angle.
