Project Spotlight: Waterline — “The Tallest Tower in Texas”

WGI is providing a wide range of civil engineering services for what is set to become the tallest tower in Texas — Waterline

The City of Austin has given the green light to one of its most ambitious projects yet which was recently coined with the unique name of Waterline.

Upon completion, this record-breaking skyscraper will stand at over 1,022 feet and will take the title of the tallest building in Texas.

Transforming How Austin is Envisioned, Designed, & Experienced

Located minutes away from downtown on East Cesar Chavez & Red River Streets near Rainey St. District, it’s destined to become an incredible showstopper as a mixed-use tower that includes office space, hotels, and residential units along with plentiful amenities for visitors, boasting a total of 2.6 million square feet that will include:

  • 74 Stories
  • 251-Unit Hotel
  • 352-Unit Residential Complex
  • 700,000 Square Feet of Office Space
  • 24,000 Square Feet of Retail and Restaurant Space

In alignment with WGI’s vision, this soon-to-be record-breaking tower will transform how Austin is envisioned, designed, and experienced, all while overlooking Waller Creek and the Waterloo Greenway.
