Every single building that you see here has either been proposed, is under construction, or is being prepped.

The tallest building in the pictures is the Travis County Courthouse project. The actual courthouse will be adjacent to the taller, mixed-use building. I used the tallest proposed height that was provided for the tower as well, so it will likely be about 20 or so stories shorter than it is in the renderings.

Now, I'd like to say that this is NOT design accurate, however, it is height and placement accurate, minus Trinity Place, which is an educated guess.

The only buildings that I question if they will get built are the Rainy Street towers really. Most of the rest of these buildings will most likely get build, given the market, over the next 5-7 years.

Oh definitely. It won't be but a little longer before the other Big 4 come and try to place doubt. Most of these buildings are apartment buildings. Austin has a 98% occupancy in DT regarding the apartment market. Even with these thousands of apartments flooding the market, demand and supply won't match for years to come. The only questionable buildings are maybe the Rainy Street towers, as I said before, and of course the height of the massive mixed use building next to the Travis County Courthouse. It will likely come in at around 400-700ft.

Oh, and maybe the Planetarium Tower that's going to (maybe) get built right behind the Capitol building. It will be 655ft. more or less.

I'm not really sure how to, but I'll mess around with it.

This is the one I seeing generating the most resistance, because it seems the most out of place to me.

The rest, I see as pretty much inevitable. Nice job with the rendering.

Oh, wow! Great work!

Can we make request for views? Like maybe from Auditorium Shores? And maybe one from my house. It is kinda like the view from the Palisades West at 360 and Bee Caves Road but closer to Westlake Dr up in those hills?

No problem. I'll do it when I get home.
