I think brackenridge redevelopment will really help to kick things off too.

Once WC zoning is updated to allow 300 footers, the skyline view from the west is gonna look massive.
In the draft new land use code (hopefully replacing our 35 yo code soon...) much of the area in downtown that has been capped in height is allowed to behave more like the downtown properties they are. It's imperative that we get it over the finish line. It will be really good for housing, transit and urbanism.
The City of Austin must reform it's outdated land development code.
