AUSTIN | 300 Colorado | 446 FEET | 32 FLOORS

We've been following this one, but now that the elevations have been released to the public it needs a thread.

austintowers.net has some aerial massing renderings showing its place.

518' is better than 400'...I'll take it! That area is going to seem a lot more dense with this new addition, especially being right next to Colorado Tower. Imagine if the lot just north of the Austonion on the same block and the old Children's Museum get developed with high rises!

From the renderings, it seems that there may be some ground-level retail. Is that the case?

That's the case with virtually every Austin high-rise. In this case we only know that a restaurant is part of the ground floor retail.

Sweet! This would be 2 feet taller than Frost then and would be (by then) the 4th tallest behind The Independent, The Austonian, and 360 Condos. The elevations show the 44th floor to be at 480 feet, which is 4 feet over the highest part of the roof of the W Hotel.

This says it would be the 4th tallest, but it's actually the 5th tallest. The Independent, The Austonian, Fairmont Hotel and 360 Condos would each be taller, although, it will have the 3rd highest roof in the city. The Fairmont and 360 Condos both have spires.

315-unit luxury apartment skyscraper proposed for downtown Austin moves closer to approval

If approved, the building at 300 Colorado St. would be the fourth-tallest building in the city's skyline

A 44-story, 315-unit luxury apartment skyscraper moved one step closer to taking the place of the one-story Sullivan’s Steakhouse at 300 Colorado St., Austin, after the city’s Design Commission approved the plans on Monday night.

The proposal now heads to the Historic Landmark Commission as the developer, Austin 3C Venture LP, has requested a demolition permit for the more-than-80-year-old, one-story, brick facade building that sits on the southern end of downtown’s Warehouse District.

Although the plans passed 8-1, commissioners voiced concern over the historic significance of the site. Though they said the Warehouse District is not an official historic district, commissioners said it is one recognized by longtime residents. Rather than demolish the structure—out of which Sullivan’s Steakhouse still operates—commissioners expressed a desire to maintain its character on at least the ground floor, which is planned to operate as a commercial space.

Unfortunately plans have switched over to office from residential.

$175M office tower planned for 300 Colorado instead of multifamily high-rise; Oil company takes it all

Quote:
A joint venture has been formed to build a $175 million office tower on the downtown Austin block that's currently home to Sullivan's Steakhouse.

Cousins Properties Inc., Riverside Resources Inc. and Ironwood Real Estate have teamed up on the planned skyscraper at Colorado Street and West Third Street, to be known as 300 Colorado. It is expected to have more than 300,000 square feet.

Parsley Energy Inc., a highly active oil driller and one of the few headquartered in Austin, has pre-leased all of the office space, according to a Tuesday announcement. The lease is for 12 years.

It is a slight pivot from Riverside Resource's earlier plans. The Austin-based developer had initially envisioned 300 Colorado as a 44-story residential tower with ground-floor retail. Ironwood initially bought the property in 2006 and later formed a joint venture with Riverside.

There's no indication yet of how the building might look. The Tuesday announcement only said "an entirely new concept" is in the works for the design. However, the Statesman reports the skyscraper will be 18 floors of offices atop 13 stories of above-ground parking — about 420 feet tall in all.

Construction is expected to begin in December with delivery estimated in December 2020.

The decision to switch to offices will add more capacity in a tightly constricted market. The asking rate for Class A office space in the Central Business District was about $52 per square foot in the fourth quarter, the highest across the metro by far, and vacancy was 6.8 percent, according to data from CBRE Group Inc.

More details have come out about this tower. As mentioned in January, the developers switched gears and instead of it being a residential tower, it'll be office space - and shorter. Still, this is going to be a 446 foot building with nearly 700,000 square feet of space. It'll be Austin's 3rd tallest office building.

This article includes the building elevations for the new office version, though, no renderings yet.

34-Story Office Tower Plan at 300 Colorado Gets a New Look

JAMES RAMBIN APRIL 4, 2018

Earlier this year, firms Cousins Properties, Ironwood Real Estate, and Riverside Resources announced their planned 44-story residential tower at 300 Colorado Street in downtown Austin would change its usage to offices, and that the entire building was pre-leased by oil and gas drilling firm Parsley Energy.

The building’s plan describes a 34-story office tower, approximately 445.5 feet in height, with 340,000 total square feet of offices and 10,000 square feet of restaurant space, which appears to occupy the first two floors with an outdoor terrace on the second floor. The tower’s ground floor also contains a lobby space and a garage entrance facing Colorado Street. In all, the building has 13 levels of parking above the two-level restaurant, providing 727 total spaces. That’s 300,000 square feet of parking garage — certainly within spitting distance of the size of the building’s office space, but not exceeding it.

Yeah, it's pretty boring. I liked the residential proposal better. The unfortunate thing is it's going to be fairly prominent on the skyline because of where it is. I was hoping for something with a little more facade variation and detail. I also wonder how they'll light it. The Colorado Tower across the street already lights its mechanical screens with flood lights. Doing that here would just be redundant.

They could've imagined something more creative for some corporate offices over there, given the ongoing hype about this town.
Even here in Paris, anyone reading English has heard of momentum over there, and private corporate interests usually can afford original stuff.

That said, had it been residential, I would've easily taken it for some areas growing some highrises over here.
This would be more than cool as a residential tower here.

I love it. The simplicity of it balances out well with some of the more unique towers planned around it. And the details look really nice.

Simplicity can be a good thing.
