Former Austin City Council member and now mayoral candidate Laura Morrison held her campaign kickoff party Monday night, where she briefly laid out a three-part platform.
The event to support the former two-term council member in her mayoral bid attracted an audience between 80 and 100 people to Threadgill's World Headquarters that included many familiar faces from the Austin Neighborhoods Council. After taking several jabs at her opponent, incumbent Mayor Steve Adler, Morrison told the crowd that her campaign would aim to create a "viable future for all of us," and would thus focus on three things.
The Domain's most recent office tower project, the rather obviously — named Domain Tower, appeared to distinguish itself from its neighbors in North Austin's largest mixed-use development by not having a number in its name — but despite this momentary break from the norm, the Domain's next office tower will fall back in line and take a number. This time, it's time to say hello to Domain 9.
Capital One Financial Corp. has closed four Austin locations and relaunched its downtown flagship in the mold of its new branded Capital Café.

The other hybrid bank and coffee shop will be at Domain Northside.

Modular buildings are partly assembled in factories to strict specifications, then brought to their permanent sites.
At that point, the buildings may already be fully put together or they'll get finished on-site with cranes that stack one piece on top of another until the project's completion. There are several reasons why modular buildings help city planners and similar professionals green the footprint of the built environment. By thinking about long-term environmental sustainability as well as eco-friendly benefits, modular building construction sites are the clear choice for the future.
