The one downtown Austin building that has protected views of just about everything in central Austin (Zilker, Lady Bird Lake, Texas State Capitol) is officially open.  According to Larry Warshaw, one of the developers of the Spring Condos, closings began late last week and residents have started moving in.  Cool!

[update: It appears that all of the construction barriers have been removed.  3rd Street reconnects with Baylor St on the other side of Lamar.  The ground floor retail frontage is visible from the street.  I’ll try and snap some photos tomorrow.]

If you witnessed a line extending half-a-block down w. 3rd on Tuesday evening it was the line to get to the top of Spring condominiums.  The party was to celebrate their topping out at the 41st floor.  Using the cargo elevator, attendees were taken to the 41st floor.  Once on the 41st floor you walked off the cargo and greeted by a cavernous space filled with guests (similar to the Austonian party).  Judging by the line and logistical challenges, including a 45 minute wait to get a tour of the interiors, I don’t think the Spring developers planned for the volume of guests!  Still, the drinks were flowing and everyone looked to be having a great time.  The views were what you would expect at that level… while the sun was setting… amazing.

Guests were also invited to tour a couple of furnished model units.  Many existing buyers were in attendance, eager to get their first glimpse of a completed floor plan.

After the jump you can find a few pics of the interiors.
