After several weeks of the weather foiling our plans, myself and KevinFromTexas at SkyscraperPage, were escorted to the 55th floor of the Austonian where we could take photos of the building’s city views (they kindly asked us to not take photos of the interiors until they were complete). As has been common this season, a storm started rolling in as we were setting up, and the wind was a little too intense for this photographer’s novice hand to get the tripod to support itself. I think we came through with some interesting perspectives. If you’re interested in more photos of the Austonian, make sure to checkout SkyscraperPage’s Austonian Thread and Flickr. Thanks to Cile, Sarah, and Trey at the Austonian for facilitating the tour!
You can see the 55th floor terraces here – this amazing photo is taken from the crane positioned high above the top of the building!
