Austin's 45-story Wilson Tower to start work in November

Downsized Wilson Tower Goes Vertical in November

Initially, the Wilson Tower was slated to reach 80 stories into the Austin sky, making it what would have been the tallest building in Texas. But this Spring, the investors, Wilson Capital, reworked the plans and came up with a 45-story highrise apartment complex with 350 units.

Before going vertical Wilson will have to raze the existing building on the site, the Avenue Lofts. That’s expected to get going early next month. The Austin Business Journal reports the developer expects work on the apartment high-rise to be completed by August 2026.

Plans call for a lobby as well as retail space on the ground floor, while floors two through 10 will have both residential units and parking and levels 12 through 44 will be purely residential. Level 11 will be dedicated to amenities, a leasing office and a pool deck.
