There’s a well-known saying that everything is bigger in Texas. But so far, that hasn’t been the case for the state capital’s skyline.
That could change soon, said Brad Wilkins of architecture firm HKS, during an interview with CNN.
Wilkins has worked on some of the world’s tallest buildings — including Dubai’s Burj Khalifa and the Wuhan Greenland Center in China — and he’s the principal and design director behind Wilson Tower, an 80-story, 1,035-foot residential skyscraper planned for Austin, Texas.
The project, which developer Wilson Capital announced this month, is expected to break ground next summer though it is still going through the permitting process and a budget has not been made available to the public.
