    The Independent is one of the "slender towers" now possible under Austin's current development ordinances.  At 58 stories and approximately 690' in height, the building was – when construction began in 2016 – the tallest residential building west of the Mississippi River.  Construction will be complete soon, and residents are beginning to move into their residences.

    DCI Engineers and Balfour Beatty US hosted two tours of the building and provide insight on it's engineering aspects.  Capacity for each tour was limited to 10.
