Homewood Suites in Austin Tops Out

Largo topped out at the Homewood Suites in Austin, Texas last month. Working with general contractor DD&B Construction and designed by Phillips Partnership and DCI Engineers, the high-rise concrete frame building stands 17 stories on the eastern boundary of Austin’s Rainey Street District. With a total of 150 rooms across 200,369gsf, the first four levels will be designated for parking and are hidden by a metal facade which carries up the building’s core to the roof.

IBC Bank Tower Complete

Largo completed the final clean at the Block 51, IBC Bank Building this week in Austin, TX for JE Dunn. The concrete framed building is over 400,000gsf and features 6-levels of commercial space above 7-levels of parking and retail on the ground floor. Scheduled to be complete in late 2014, this is the first commercial tower to be built in downtown Austin for 10-years with nearly 200,000sf of office space.

The curved façade on West Fifth distinguishes the building in one of the most coveted areas of town directly across from Republic Square Park and a couple blocks away from the Federal Courthouse and City Hall. Largo poured over 16,000CY of concrete over seven months with no recordable injuries.
