AUSTIN-Eight construction sites are now a “sight” to behold, with 190 murals in place to make the properties more aesthetically pleasing during the development stages.

The four-foot-square murals, the handiwork of students, are a project of the Downtown Austin Alliance. The murals have been placed at the following projects: CarrAmerica’s 300 W. 6th St. office tower; Intel Corp.’s chip design facility at 5th St. and San Antonio; Computer Sciences Corp.’s campus at Cesar Chavez and San Antonio; Long Center for Performing Arts at 1st St. and Barton; Austin Children’s Museum at 3rd St. and Colorado; Sutton Co.’s Plaza Lofts at 5th St. and Guadalupe; Market Place at Lamar Blvd. between 5th and 6th streets; and the Lamar Pedestrian Bridge.
