Fix the Crown

A campaign to fix the crown on The Independent

Crowning Achievement?

The Mission of Fix the

     The Independent - Austin topped out in late 2018 to debut its award winning design as the tallest skyscraper in Austin, Texas and the tallest residential tower west of the Mississippi River.  What was highly anticipated as the crowning achievement of the Austin skyline has become an embarrassing scar on an otherwise well executed project. 

We believe the Independent is a stunning and beautiful addition to the Austin skyline.  The mission of is quite simply to encourage The Independent -Austin through its architects, builders, and developers to finish the top of their building and correct their mistake. 

The following contributors owe it to the City of Austin and the reputation of their firms to revisit the aesthetics of the Independent's crown. 

Architects: Rhode Partners

Main Contractor: Balfour Beatty

Developers:  Aspen Heights; CIM Group; Constructive Ventures Inc
