Frost Bank Tower

The tallest building in town, this retro-future skyscraper looms large over the skyline, providing an obvious beacon of change, signaling an era of things to come. Designed by HKS Inc., who along with Lake/Flato will design the new UT Hotel & Conference Center in 2008, the Frost is 515 feet of glass and steel. This new landmark keeps Austin characteristically weird with its owl face looking down over the city and characteristically Austin with a 30-foot cedar tree perched high atop the mechanical penthouse.
