Plans unveiled for prime downtown Austin block: City’s largest skyscraper

City documents show an initial plan for the redevelopment of a prime downtown Austin block by Trammell Crow Co. The 36-story office tower would have 665,000 square feet of offices — making it the city’s largest office skyscraper — plus restaurant and retail space.

It’s the first glimpse into the Dallas-based developer’s vision for the coveted block just north of Chase Bank Tower, and was first reported by Austin Towers.

The 1.75-acre site — surrounded by Colorado, West Sixth, Lavaca and West Seventh streets — is owned by the University of Texas System. The UT System used to occupy offices on the site, although it has nearly finished relocating across the street to a new headquarters tower.
