The building is on schedule and will be completed at the pace of one floor per week. Since then, construction has reached the 13th floor.

In response to general interest in the state of The Austonian and downtown development, Giant Media and The Austonian team hosted a media tour of the 10th floor, which when finished will serve as an urban garden complete with a 75-foot pool, fountain, private cabanas, two outdoor kitchens, two outdoor fireplaces, a secured dog park and wireless Internet. The event also provided local, media their first glimpses of the residential tower as well as the spectacular view of the capitol.

The media event was a success and received coverage on all five news stations, the Austin American-Statesman and the Austin Business Journal.
