Sep 10, 2019

Work set to start for Austin's next tallest tower

AUSTIN – Work will start within the next two months on 6 X Guadalupe, a 66-story tower that will surpass the Independent as the city's tallest tower.

Before construction can begin, a four-story Extended Stay America hotel on the site will be demolished.

The skyscraper, designed by Gensler, will have more than 349 luxury apartments, 589,661 sf of office space, and 11,675 sf of retail space. 

Office amenities include 35,000 sf of elevated, park-like space and private offices with balconies. Apartment amenities include an indoor/outdoor deck, three pools, a fitness facility, and an outdoor yoga deck. 

There will also be 25 penthouses with access to a private rooftop clubroom, dining room, outdoor deck, and pool.

The office portion will wrap up in late 2022.
