    With F1 and UT games apparently going to coincide regularly, I think there will be plenty of demand for rooms. ACL going to 2 weekends is another factor. And with all of this new square footage, look for Austin to compete for more big conventions.

    Chet - I am not in the business, though it does seem like a very interesting line of work. I'm just an amateur. I can't speak for goat, though.

    I was just thinking about the Filling Station. That was a landmark that doesn't get enough love. I used to love going there as a kid and sitting in one of the old cars, or looking at the licence plates on the tables.

    Bus is fine if you are poor, or still a kid. Anyone in their 30's ever try to take a lady downtown on the bus? It's going to take twice as long to get home, and that is just extra time for the chick to sober up and figure out she doesn't want to go back to your place.

    SXSW's eventual evolution is going to need more hotel space, too... maybe banquet/presentation space, too.

    I've taken the light rail downtown (or Plaza Saltillo and the White Horse) and taken chicks home in a cab. The mass transit in central Austin is really not that bad.

    Good deal. Nothing more exciting than living in a city where there is a lot of commercial construction going on.

    I've been stuck in San Francisco because the BART didn't run late hours when I was at Berkeley. Does the Bay Area mass transit count for you? At the very least you can say central Austin's mass transit service is "not bad".

    I haven't lived in Austin since 2007 but I used to take the #1 all the time. I'm sure getting around today with all the apps and $#@! is much easier than it was then, so I'm sure it's manageable in Central Austin.

    Hotel ZaZa (24 stories) is hoping to break ground later this year at 401 Guadalupe across from Republic Square Park. The folks with Austin City Lofts next door are opposing the zoning change to allow it. They're citing traffic concerns. Psh. They just don't want their view to change.



    800-804 Congress is another that is ready to go, but is waiting on an ok from the city. The developer, city, other properties and small businesses in the area are wrangling over the setbacks. This building is a little too close to Congress for the liking of the properties to the south. At least that's how I'm understanding it. Someone like LonghornFan68 can probably explain it better.







    Shoal Creek Walk would be an 18 story building. Ground floor retail and 17 floors of office space. This would be at 6th and Bowie, just a block north of 3 Eleven Bowie.



    3rd & Colorado office tower (30 stories) is moving forward.



    White Lodging is planning another hotel. They already have 2 under construction (JW Marriott and Hyatt Place). This one would be 20 stories and located on the corner of East 5th and San Jacinto.

    I'm glad some more office space is in the works. Filling a skyline with nothing but luxury hotels/apartments/condos seems incomplete.

    We haven't acquired anything yet, because of the restrictions. Its just limiting the opportunities.

    It's going to be built on the old Hickory Street Bar and Grill as well as the building north of it.

    Last January, it was reported that they allowed Hickory Street a flexible lease to reopen until they're able to move forward with the project.

    Another condo tower just got the City's approval for its site plan last month. This one is at 7th and Rio Grande and will be aptly named "7 Rio." It'll be right behind the old Katz's.

    And, apparently some called World Class Capital Group purchased those old warehouses across Cesar Chavez from the convention center back in August. As of last month, the billboards on that lot were taken down, leading to speculation that it'll soon be developed.

    Is that just a concept or is that the final design? Because that is the most depressingly boring looking building I think I have ever seen.

    world class capital has a VERY young guy leading it. pretty interesting back story on his hustling background, http://www.bizjournals.com/austin/st....html?page=all

    I have a small hand in the 7 Rio project. Every time I drive around the area I am kind of taken aback by the location/what it's immediately surrounded by. gonna be a pretty good western view 'til the next one comes along it seems.

    This was their original rendering back in 2008 before the project got stalled by the recession. According to the Downtown Austin blog, it got scaled back a bit. Originally, I hadn't read the full post (my mistake). It's now apartments and this looks like this is the site plan that was approved by the City:

    Ya, I've heard Nate talk several times and he is obviously a bright dude. I'm just curious as to WCCG's financial backing. I know the heads of a couple other PE firms and they are always wondering whose putting money where.

    world class capital has a VERY young guy leading it. pretty interesting back story on his hustling background, http://www.bizjournals.com/austin/st....html?page=all

    I have a small hand in the 7 Rio project. Every time I drive around the area I am kind of taken aback by the location/what it's immediately surrounded by. gonna be a pretty good western view 'til the next one comes along it seems.
    That Austin biz journal article reads like another one I remember.

    http://www.bizjournals.com/austin/st...07/story2.html 2008

    Obviously that didn't turn out well.

    Along with set back/congress ave corridor issues, I think they were having some parking or lack of a parking garage issue with that building as well.

    I think it's all cool, except for the lack of adequate parking garages.

    Just don't build a bunch of boring, shiny glass towers or East German style concrete beehive boxes.

    Those of y'all who look at the photo thread know I love me some abandoned buildings/industry. I look forward to Austin 20 years from now when several of these buildings are sitting vacant after everyone has moved on to another city.

    You watch too much Walking Dead. Austin has been consistently growing for 100+ years. I don't see why that changes in the next 20.

    I don't think there will be a ton of abandoned buildings downtown. Austin is growing and will continue to do so, just like it has throughout its history.

    Best looking building on this thread, IMO. Although the square panels on the bottom 6-8 floors don't make much sense to me. Parking?

    Yes, I believe you are correct. Those squares are where the parking structure would be located.

    I believe the goal is 40% pre-lease on the 3rd and Colorado project. I think Cousins will get that and break ground by mid-year. The one thing Austin is lacking is the big blocks of space to attract relocation. There are several build to suit development projects around town but I think being the landmark tenant in the newest CBD office tower is an attractive proposition.

    The building will compliment the Frost Tower nicely. Cousins puts out good product.

    That 3rd & Colorado building is really sleek. I love it.

    There are some other projects that I haven't posted about because they aren't for sure yet. The Travis County courthouse south of Republic Square is one. The twin towers in the Rainey district is another. Also anxious to see what pops up at the American-Statesman's site south of the river.

    Fairmont is ridiculous looking.

    Amazing the amount of change going on. I remember in the warehouse district, you could actually rent a warehouse, for $#@!ing cheap.

    Nobody lived downtown until the Railyard came along. Pretty wild the growth.

    I pine for old Austin as much as the next guy (admittedly, I've only been in the area for about 20 years, not the lifetime that some of you have been). And I $#@!ing deplore suburban sprawl, strip centers, and chain retail. But some of these parts of downtown that are being developed into massive office and condo and hotel spaces, they were $#@!ing nothing for decades. They were rundown warehouses, abandon buildings, fields of trash and weeds, homeless camps, defunct car dealerships, crackhouses. Yes, they torn down Las Manitas and Liberty Lunch, but most of those block parcels were nothing. NO history, no community benefit, and sure as $#@!-not putting anything on the tax rolls.
