Brandywine Realty Trust is developing 405 Colorado, a 25-story office building that will also include 12 levels of parking (with 530 parking spaces) and 3,000 sf of retail space.

The tower will feature 19,000 sf floor plates and a fitness center for tenants. The developer is  targeting both LEED and Austin Energy Green Building program certifications.

According to a release, “the sculptural design features glass-enclosed office levels atop a strong terra cotta tiled podium base of parking. An open lobby entry and upper plaza levels punctuate the design.”

Duda Paine Architects, who also designed Colorado Tower and the Frost Bank Tower, is handling the building’s design. Austin Commercial has been handling the project’s pre-construction services.
