AUSTIN, TX. – If you’ve lived in Austin for the last 5 to ten years there’s no doubt that you’ve witnessed the city skylines evolution.
Austin Texas is quickly developing into one of the fastest growing cities in the United States thanks to a robust jobs market and still affordable home prices. Many developers are eager to cash in on Austin and leave their marks here including Lynd Development Partners, a San Antonio based company who is planning on building the tallest tower ever for the Austin TX skyline.
About the Project
The tower as currently designed has 62 stories, although there could be more, possibly up to the “mid-70s” range, Lynd said.
At 850 feet, it would eclipse both the 56-story Austonian condominium high-rise, which is 683 feet tall, and the Independent, a 58-story condominium high-rise (nicknamed the “Jenga tower” for its unusual design) currently under construction that is on track to be 685 feet tall.
“We are going to develop a 21st-century tower that is truly mixed use in one of the most vibrant neighborhoods in all of Texas,” Lynd said. “This will be an iconic tower. We are very excited about this project and its prominent address on Sixth and Guadalupe.”
Along with apartments, the building would have more than half a million square feet of office space, plus ground-floor retail space, Lynd said.
The project is being designed by Gensler’s Austin office.
Austin-based real estate consultant Charles Heimsath, president of Capitol Market Research, said, “This is a super exciting announcement on a block that is one of a small handful of full block sites left in downtown.”
There is no official name for the building yet, which is going under the working name of 600 Guadalupe for now. Lynd didn’t have a projected cost for the project, and he wouldn’t comment on financing except to say he’s confident Lynd and Lincoln will be able to obtain it.
