The development of two proposed skyscrapers in the Austin Texas area hit a snag this week when a planning commission meeting was canceled at the last moment, denying the developers the necessary permits that they need to move their project forward.

Located off Guadalupe Street in Austin, the project will be a mixed-use project condo office tower (37-story) while the 66-story tower will be the tallest building in Austin once it’s finished.

Disappointment at Meeting Cancellation

Upon learning that the planning commission meeting was canceled, the disappointment was obvious by the architects and designers who have been working hard on this project.

"Wе wеrе рrеttу disappointed іn thе mееtіng саnсеllаtіоn last nіght but оn bоth рrоjесtѕ wе feel рrеttу роѕіtіvе about where wе аrе in design аnd schedule," ѕаіd Seth Jоhnѕtоn, Austin-based vice рrеѕіdеnt оf Lіnсоln.

Project Moving Forward

Although their meeting was cancelled due to lack of a quorum it’s obvious that this project will move forward without any more glitches or delays because it’s going to bring more jobs to Austin and interest from people who want to live in this prime location.

This project will likely be discussed and approved at the next planning commission meeting on August 27th.
