Another great building we need to talk about from Austin, Texas is The Austin 360 Condominiums Tower which as of this post is the Tallest building in Austin Texas and the tallest Residential Building in Texas. This residential skyscraper is located at 360 Nueces Street, in Austin, Texas, United States of America. The Austin 360 Condominiums Tower stands at 563 feet tall and contains 44 floors.

Inside, each unit includes floor-to-ceiling glass walls, kitchens with granite and stainless steel finishes, tall ceiling heights, high-speed Internet access, TV monitors in elevators, 24-hour concierge services and a prominent lobby featuring a virtual art gallery that digitally displays art on lobby plasma screens. The Austin 360 Condominiums Tower was completed on May 22nd, 2008 and was named Tallest building in Austin Texas as of June 2008 surpassing Frost Bank Tower.
The name “360” was inspired by Austin’s history of having “360” in the names of many things such as Loop 360, the Pennybacker Bridge, which is also known as the Loop 360 Bridge. The name was also given to the building for the 360 degree views that the building will have of downtown.

The building is the tallest all residential building in Texas, surpassing Mercantile Building in Dallas.
The final section of the spire was hoisted into place at 9:18 AM CST on January 15, 2008.
Surpassed the Frost Bank Tower to become the tallest building in Austin. The building is also one of only two in the city that is not on Congress Avenue to hold the title of tallest in the city.
