Colorado Tower

Colorado Tower | Austin, Texas

Colorado Tower is a new 30-story, 775,000-sq.-ft. Class A office building and parking garage in the historic Warehouse District in downtown Austin. It includes 10,000 sq. ft. of ground-floor retail, 372,000 sq. ft. of rentable office space, and a 12-level, 880-space parking structure.

Surrounded on three sides by congested downtown streets and by an existing office building on the fourth, the DPR team built the project with virtually no laydown area. Deliveries were accepted on a just-in-time basis, requiring constant communication and scheduling among team members. Pedestrian safety measures were put in place, including chain link fencing surrounding the site and frequent cleaning of the site and surrounding area.

Project Details

Precise scheduling was extremely important for the project. The team had to carefully plan and time the use of the project's single tower crane. With just one crane and while building in the tight urban landscape, just-in-time deliveries were even more important to maintain the schedule.

When the team broke ground in 2013, the space was 18 percent preleased. Several months prior to opening, it was already 95 percent preleased.

Colorado Tower opened in December 2014. It was the first new high-rise building in Austin in 10 years—the last high-rise was also developed by the same owner. Building amenities include on-site 24-hour security patrol services, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a controlled-access parking garage, and flexible conferencing facilities available for use by all building customers.
