Anyone on planet Earth has heard the saying, 'Everything is bigger in Texas' and most everyone on the planet believes it! In most cases, it's true, however, not in this case. Take for instance the Shanghai Tower in China, it's currently the tallest building in the world standing tall at a whopping 2,073 feet tall. Now, the tallest building in Texas currently comes in at a little less than half that at 1002 feet tall.

The tallest building in Texas right now is the 75 story JPMorgan Chase Tower in Houston and it could lose its title as the tallest building in the state to a new building project planned in Austin. This new skyscraper will stand 74 stories tall and if the builders can stretch it to 1003 feet tall somehow, it will become the tallest building in Texas.

Developers plan on breaking ground with construction set to begin this summer, this building is going to be quite the eye-catcher and is going to feature just about everything under the sun!

Once complete this mega-structure will house:

  • 25 floors of office space
  • 34 floors of residential space
  • 352 apartments
  • 686,000 square feet of office space
  • 251-room hotel
  • retail space

It will have a total of 2.7 million square feet of space and include four levels of residential amenity spaces for outdoor deck-type areas

How much will this supertall building cost?

Although an official cost of the project hasn't been announced, the Austin-American Statesman (via KVUE) uncovered the projected cost to be at least $520 million. In order to be built though, the developers still need a building permit from the City of Austin before construction may begin.
