Sixth and Guadalupe, which will top out at 875 feet, will soon be crowned the tallest building in Austin, and the fifth-tallest building in Texas.
Cindy Widner reports for Urbanize Austin on the status of what will soon be Austin's tallest high-rise: Sixth and Guadalupe.
Here's how Widner summarizes the plan for Sixth and Guadalupe:
Developed by Lincoln Property Company and Kairoi Residential, in partnership with DivcoWest, the building will rise to 875 feet and will be the tallest in Austin—for a moment, at least—when completed. Designed by Gensler, Sixth and Guadalupe will consist of stacked sections with different uses, combining over a million square feet of office, residential, retail, and outdoor space in one very tall building. The high-rise will include 9,984 square feet of ground-floor retail space and 14 levels of parking, topped by 589,112 square feet of Class A office space and 349 apartments for a total of 66 floors.
The headline of the story says the building, which is expected to be complete in spring 2023, is about halfway done with construction. The source article, linked below, includes more details about the facilities and amenities included in the building's plan.
