Not bad. And, yes. It's good infill.

The architecture is consistent with their (Citizen M) model.

Also, this is a very small site. The building is not going to be as boxy as it seems in the first rendering.

well I think it's ugly

but it's also 200'

that means it's at a scale which can be renovated. if the hotel fails or is deemed ugly in a decade or two it will be able to be transformed. this is problem i have with some of these bigger buildings. if they're ugly they're ugly until they're torn down.

i don't think the street interaction is great but it's there and i like the common area on second floor. i really think the (sky lounge/sky lobby/x floor common area) is a trend that is going to be here for a while.

build it.

The North facing rooms will have some amazing views of the Norwood Tower.

The worst thing about this tower is it will ruin the reflection of One American Center on the Indeed tower.

Here's an updated (66 pages!) presentation from the DC meeting. It has a lot more renderings. I'm too lazy to bother posting any now.

When did this get a height reduction?

Looks like they were planning a 20-30 story building and landed on 17. COVID?

Never as far as I know. It looks like the height in the thread title was changed to the roof height in the DC presentation when it should still be the original height with mechanical listed in the elevations. Also, sixteen is the highest occupied level - 17 is mechanical.

The height I had listed for it was 204 feet to the mechanical parapet with 16 occupied floors. That came from the site plan that was posted to the AULCC page on June 8. The elevations start on page 21.

*EDIT:* - I think the 192 foot height is the height below the mechanical roof and mechanical parapet, and is probably the roof level you'd be standing on as you walk through the doorway into the mechanical penthouse. The design in the renderings that were posted recently don't seem to be any different from the one shown in the elevations. As usual, Austin typically does not count mechanical roofs in building heights as they are exempt from height variances.

That's what I'm using for the height on my list as well.
