Yeah, that glass is going to look great. Probably our darkest since the little BoA building on congress?

Looks to be almost the same color glass on the indeed tower with a greenish tint in the right light.

Isn't the post office block still in play as well? No height restrictions there, right?

Nope. But whatever the plans for that block are are the best kept secret in Austin.

Yeah, I just have to wonder how whatever goes there will play off of 6 X Guadalupe...will certainly be impressive to have a couple of imposing towers next door to each other. It would be cool to have a second supertall in the works.

That said, I'm impressed with 6XGuad and its height. While it's a glorified box, the CVC at least gives it a neat angle cut off of it, and the glass color is a great choice.

...from the top, they may be able to watch a UT game with binoculars!

I think the aluminum panels look a lot darker/better than in the renderings. They’re almost as dark as the glass and hide the garage better. I guess we’ll see if they keep that dark color around the vented sides.

You know if you just add L just before the jpg it makes the image smaller.
