Robert Bass and Bob Burton in Law360: COVID Construction Files: Lincoln and Kairoi's Austin Tower


Winstead PC Shareholders Robert Bass and Bob Burton were featured in a Law360 article about Austin’s 6X Guadalupe – the tallest building under construction in Texas. An excerpt is below:

“Lincoln Property and Kairoi Residential had just started construction at 6X Guadalupe in Austin, Texas, when the pandemic hit, and that timing allowed the developers, who've looked to numerous law firms for help, to be nimble with design changes that keep health and safety in mind.

The tower, the first in Austin to have such a balanced mix of residential and office use, is slated to rise 847 feet and is the tallest building currently under construction in Texas, according to the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat.

A large chunk of the bottom portion of the 66-floor tower, located at West Sixth Street and Guadalupe Street, is office space, while the top portion is residential. The property also has a retail component…
