Renderings have emerged showing a skyscraping proposal of 259 metres that could become the tallest building in Austin. The Lynd Company and Lincoln Property Company are partnering on a proposal that would boast at least 62 storeys, potentially climbing as high as 75 storeys, and eclipse both the current tallest building and The Independent, which is well on its way to becoming the city's pinnacle skyscraper.
The Gensler-designed tower has been imagined for a block bounded by West Sixth, West Seventh, Guadalupe and San Antonio streets in the downtown core. Currently occupied by an Extended Stay America hotel at 600 Guadalupe Street, the site would give way to more than 500,000 square feet of office space, over 300 luxury apartments, and a deluge of ground-level retail.
The Statesman reports that the development team is planning on filing applications with the City soon, with a targeted construction start date within 12 months. The goal is to have the office component delivered first, possibly just two years after breaking ground. The entire project would take about four years to wrap up construction.
Renderings for the development show a large podium structure topped by an expansive amenity space. From there, a glass-sheathed tower with multiple setbacks rises and culminates at a record height. A number of other outdoor spaces and swimming pools would be positioned along the edge of the building, capitalizing on what guarantees to be a mesmerizing view.
