Now officially the tallest building in the Austin city skyline, the Independent is a residential building containing 61 floors and 370 condominiums. Nicknamed the “Jenga Tower,” this 690 foot-tall skyscraper boasts amenities such as a heated pool, club room, fitness center, yoga deck, playground, and dog park.
Thinking fast on our feet, The Porter Co. team overcame a manufacturer defect by mobilizing a separate crew on the fly to focus solely on the issue while the rest of the team charged ahead, causing only minimal time lost. Additionally, we adapted to numerous architectural design changes while pushing ahead to finish the project.
The Independent is an excellent example of The Porter Co.’s mentality of tenacity, leadership, and focus.
