Austonian's crane to depart soon
Austin's tallest building is almost finished, and the crane that has hovered above the Austonian for months started to come down Tuesday.
It will take about two weeks to disassemble the crane, which helped build the 56-story, 683-foot condominium tower at Congress Avenue and Second Street.
Workers finished exterior work on the tower last month.
Streetscape work is scheduled to begin this month, and in March, workers will finish lighting the glass crown. One of the three sections already has been illuminated.
In May, the Austonian will be the site of the Women's Symphony League of Austin's 2010 Symphony Designer Showhouse. In June, the first residents are expected to move in.
The Austonian's developers have not disclosed how many of the condominiums have been sold.
