Not a bad addition for Austin. It will be interesting to see how this one turns out; the rendering has it looking a bit look one high-rise stacked atop another.

This building is going to really look massive especially from the north and south views.

Mike, I walked out on those platforms in the lake a few weeks ago to get some shots. And in the process I picked up a good bit of poison ivy. Eh. No fun.

I guess I was lucky. The day I was there it was cold, so I had on long pants, and long sleeves.
Thanks for the warning.

Here's a few photos from January 20 from Lamar Square. Four Seasons Residences is at the far right of the skyline.

Heh, my dad would always gripe about the poison ivy along the hike and bike trail in Zilker Park. I can still hear his voice complaining about it. I guess that's the price you have to pay for having a wild natural looking trail. Everything flourishes.

^Yep. I went out on my "ride to see the skyline" this past weekend. I actually spotted the Four Seasons from a few spots here in South Austin.

I think they'll have to raise the crane at least once more, maybe twice? They have 8 floors to go, and I think the building would be about level with the top of the boom of the crane now. It'll be just 3 feet shorter than One Congress Plaza, our former 2nd tallest, so it will be a fairly prominent building on the skyline, especially from the south.

Here's a night view from one of the Convention Center balconies.




I had never been up on those balconies before. They're kind of nice. There's lots of those aluminum tables and chairs, with taller tables and barstools along the railing. You can get some good views of parts of the skyline from there.

Up to 25 floors. 7 more to go. I think that will put it about at the boom part of the crane.
