If you keep up with the news in Austin and all things downtown, then you’ve probably heard about the new Google office building coming up on Block 185 of Austin’s Seaholm District. The plans for the building were released in April of 2019, and the project is well under way. Its height and curved glass structure creates a sail-like effect and will add a bit of flare and modernity (or Modernitude as Civilitude would call it, maybe that one doesn’t work!) to the Austin skyline. And Civilitude is honored to be a part of it!
The tower’s 793,883 square feet will be able to fit about 5,000 people– a huge jump from Google’s current 800 Austin employees. It’s design will include standard tech-company perks: a fitness center and recreation areas, lounges, kitchen and dining areas, conference centers, a bar/tavern, and, surely, more. Its 1,327 parking spaces will be on lower floors, with some of it underground (that’s the civil part, wink wink)!
