5th + Colorado, The office tower under construction on the southwest corner of 5th Street and Colorado Street is making progress.
Austin Commerical, the building’s general contractor, appears to be working on the 9th floor of the cast-in-place concrete structure. Work on the building’s facade has also commenced, as you see in our photos.
When complete, the building will rise 18 stories. Lincoln Property Company is the developer behind the project and hopes to capitalize on strong demand for office space downtown. They’re not alone — the 30-story Colorado Tower, just two blocks south, opened earlier this year. Another tower underway at 500 W. 2nd Street will be the new Austin home for Google, and the $30-million renovation of 501 Congress has recently completed.
