Best Reminder That Pride Goeth Before A Fall

Downtown's Abandoned Intel Building

As monuments to hubris go, Austin has its share. Take the Bob Bullock State Amusement Park - er, History Museum - at the Capitol complex, or the towering McMansions that clutter the hillsides from Mount Bonnell to West Lake Hills. But for real evidence that the mighty have the farthest to fall, look no farther than the abandoned Intel building downtown, where a concrete skeleton has replaced city leaders' vision of a dynamic, tech-driven "digital downtown."
