I can’t find any information on how much steel or concrete was used in this great Steel Building.   Anyways here is some information about the building.

Just a few minutes away from the State Capitol, The Austonian is within walking distance of more than 100 restaurants and nightclubs, dozens of cultural attractions and parks, as well as a tantalizing abundance of clothing and furniture boutiques. Daily needs, conveniences and indulgences are just an elevator ride away. Man-made convenience is complemented by the natural advantages of Lady Bird Lake—a block away—for a challenging run or casual stroll, or for admiring the beauty of Austin from ground level.

“Whatever the residents want!”
The Austonian Homeowners Association will be directed by David Regenbaum, Co-Founder, Chairman and CEO of Association Management, Inc.

In 1979, David Regenbaum, a recognized expert in real estate and community association law in South Africa, retired from the law firm he founded and moved to Houston to found AMI. His objective was to set a new, exemplary standard for professional management services to associations.

Now, AMI has become the leading association management company in Texas, continuing to innovate, develop, and set new standards for the industry.

AMI provides a dedicated, professional team of people to attend to the needs of each community. Each team includes an administrator, a full-charge bookkeeper and a service counselor/administrative assistant.

A higher level of technology.

Putting technology at your fingertips is something that happens quite literally at The Austonian. One touchscreen controls your home’s climate, lighting, telephone and security systems, even music and movies that you can enjoy in any room of your home. You can schedule when lights and climate control turn on to maximize safety, security and energy savings. The system will even alert you via email or phone if there seem to be any problems with your heating or cooling.

Your touchscreen is also a helpful interface to the world outside. You or your guests can notify the valet to get your car ready and receive an alert when it is at the curb; you can make reservations at many restaurants or check movie show times and purchase tickets. Be alerted when visitors have arrived, schedule housekeeping services and report maintenance concerns. Stay informed of Home Owners Association news. Reserve the spa, massage room, Austonian Club, conference room – all of The Austonian’s amenities.

You can also observe the inside and outside of your home anytime you want, from anywhere. In fact, all the systems of your home can be remotely monitored and controlled from any telephone, PDA or via the Internet. You can even use it to monitor a second home.

Your home is also pre-wired for stereo speakers in the master bed and bath, kitchen and balcony, with surround sound in the living room and high-definition video in the master bedroom and living room. Wiring for standard security systems is installed, and your entire home features both wired and wireless Internet access.

The Austonian. It’s high technology at its highest.

Green Features

Environmental Features
Green from the inside out. And the ground up.
From the way it’s constructed to the particular brand of luxurious living it affords, The Austonian is one of the most sustainable addresses in Austin. A long list of features has resulted in The Austonian seeking a four-star rating from the City of Austin in its Green Building Rating System, equivalent to the LEED Gold Rating from the USGBC.
Water savings.
It is estimated that The Austonian will save up to 37.6 million gallons of water each year in landscape watering alone, compared to a typical hill country community of 188 families living on one acre suburban lots. This is due not only to The Austonian community requiring little land, but also to its unique rainwater capture system, requiring no public water for landscape irrigation of the Lawn. Low-flow toilets, lavatories and shower heads are installed which will reduce the use of potable water by at least 30% over typical fixtures.

 

Less auto use.
The Austonian’s location puts dining, shopping, entertainment, employment and recreation within a five-minute walk, lowering the carbon footprint for every resident. Secured bicycle storage makes zero-fuel transportation an excellent option. Families in typical single family homes generate 10 vehicle trips per day. Urban living reduces the vehicle trips per day and shortens those daily vehicle trips that are needed.
Construction materials.
The Austonian residences have been designed to maximize outdoor views. Specially coated and insulated glass provides year-round energy savings and comfort by helping manage the sun’s energy and maximizing HVAC efficiency. All adhesives, sealants, paints and coatings used throughout public and private spaces adhere to the strict VOC requirements designed by the LEED’s Green Building Rating System. These low-emitting materials achieve energy savings through reduced ventilation requirements and improve indoor air quality and all come from sustainable sources. The Austonian’s roofing system combines reflective materials and other green features to minimize the building’s contribution to Austin’s urban heat island effect.

 

Electrical power.
Utilities are one area where saving the environment also means saving money. The Austonian has partnered with local “green power” provider, Austin Energy, to supply such efficiencies to residents. Sensors and dimming ballasts in select common areas reduce the amount of lighting used when they are unoccupied. The Austonian’s heating and air conditioning (HVAC) system operates using the Austin chilled water system, rather than using electricity and 188 or more individual HVAC units, each powering condensers and separate cooling systems. By using the chilled water system flowing under downtown Austin roadways, little energy is consumed to heat and cool The Austonian residences.
