Link Round Up

  1. Facebook moves into their downtown Austin offices at 300 W 6th Street, on Monday.  This building has 22 stories, built in 2002, and is pretty nice looking, though I never know what to call it.  It’s between Lavaca and Guadalupe, across from Belmont.  It will now be called the Facebook Building.  (ABJ)
  2. The site at 2nd and Congress, where that 1000 room hotel was to be built, still could end up with a hotel, just a different hotel, but right now they are just planning for a hotel.  Oh well.  (Statesman)
  3. If you didn’t catch it yesterday, the I35 Makeover is official, funded, and soon to be under construction. (DAB)
  4. Michael Barnes shares the A-List hotel bars in Austin.  Driskill #1, Four Seasons, #2.  I would agree with those for downtown.  Overlooked was the Finn & Porter lounge at the Hilton –  the upstairs lounge has an easy going and chilled out vibe.  (Austin360)
