Standing taller than any building in Austin, residents, visitors, and travelers on I-35 have witnessed the visual impact of Sixth and Guadalupe on the Austin skyline as it grew to its final height of 865 feet. This much-anticipated tower will be completed late 2023, having managed through skilled labor shortages, a pandemic, and market inflation.
Sixth and Guadalupe sets the bar for defining the function, beauty, and community integration of mixed-use buildings. It is a 2.1 million square-foot, 66-story tower that stacks 15 levels of parking, 19 levels of Class A office space, and 33 levels of high-end residential on an entire city block in one of downtown Austin's most walkable and popular areas.
It will also include 10,000 square feet of street-level retail and has the largest elevated outdoor amenity space in Austin.
"We have assembled a remarkable team to build what we believe will be the finest residential experience in all of Austin. We are looking forward to celebrating this successful milestone with our team and partners," said Tony Curp, Executive Vice President of Development at Kairoi.
"Sixth and Guadalupe is designed to provide unique live and work experiences with a mix of amenities that takes advantage of the walkability at such a high-profile location," said Ed Muth, Principal, Gensler.
"There are a lot of firsts with this project – it's the tallest for Austin, it's the tallest JE Dunn has ever built, and this entire team is really pioneering this level of design and construction," said Forrest Wilson, Vice President and Project Executive on the project, "And this project is done by a team that is on the ground everyday with hundreds of skilled workers every day. To have such an engaged and dedicated team on a project that will be almost four years in the making is phenomenal."
