405 Colorado jump-starts Great Streets in warehouse district

Urbanize Austin

Aug 30, 2022

A recently completed office tower near a redeveloping area downtown is the first to follow the standards of Austin’s Great Streets Plan.

All mirrors and copper, 405 Colorado rises above the mostly two-story buildings in the history-flavored warehouse district around it. That’s all about to change, though, with a planned 40-story residential tower on a nearby block bounded by West Third, West Fourth, and Colorado streets. The development of that yet-unnamed building by Houston’s Hanover will transform a strip of low-slung buildings that have long been a locus of Austin’s LGBTQ nightlife.
