Austin's skyline is fat

Nothing too in-depth, just a few shots from Monday. I took these from Saint Edward's University in South Austin. Someone suggested I post these here too, so here we go.


















Crane for the Texas Monthly Office Building.








Spring - 434 foot, 42-story condo tower.


Spring (condos) - 434 feet - 42 floors - and The Monarch (apartments) - 323 feet - 29 floors.


Can you see it?! There's a new tallest on the way...




The Ashton - 412 foot, 36-story apartment tower.


Legacy on Town Lake - 339 feet - 31 floors - apartments.


Four Seasons crane, no building yet. It'll be 394 feet with 32 floors once finished. Condos.


360 Condos - Austin's new tallest at 563 feet with 44 floors.


21 Rio. This is a 236 foot, 21-story apartment tower in the West Campus neighborhood north of downtown. It actually made quite an impact on the skyline. I was surprised.

Nice panos. Looks like Austin is just-a-boomin' with skyscraper construction.

Could you be more specific? The skyline or the small college town vibe?

Well, I live here and the buildings that show up in the photo are all real, and in the right place. Why would you say that? What's your basis?

Hey Kevin, you should dedicated a day to take some pictures of the new UT stadium and what it looks from the outside. That would be great as these.

Those 360 condos do look photoshopped in! Austin is getting quite the skyline going.

I need to take a trip there, it's been too long...
