This is one of the nicer buildings going up anywhere. Its location on the river is perfect for the sail design. It’s right across the river from the Stevie Ray Vaughan statue too. So it makes a nice backdrop for the tribute to such a guitar legend. You can see the crane in this photo from last year. The building is much taller now.
Here’s a better picture of the statue. SRV forever!
This is what it will look like in Austin’s skyline along with several other under construction.

Showing itself above the crowd on the KXAN webcam. I think the crane is topped out, so the building will top out just below it. Not much higher than that anyway.

Is there a zoning regulation in Austin that buildings must taper away from the river? Both of the buildings in the photo above, plus the proposed supertall at 98 Red River have setbacks/tapers that “step down” to the water’s edge below. I’m wondering if this is a design choice or a zoning rule.
I think there is. Not 100% positive, but I think so.
