Construction on the Scarbrough Building was completed in 1911 (per Emporis.com). It was the first steel skyscraper in the Austin. The Scarbrough Building has 8 floors, and contains over 130,000 square feet of leasable area. A plaque on the building from the Texas Historical Register says the following: "Alabama native Emerson Monroe Scarbrough (1846-1925) came to Texas following service in the Civil War and settled in Milam County, where he was a successful merchant. He opened a branch of his business, Scarbrough and Hicks, on Congress Avenue in 1893, moving one block north in 1894. In 1910, on this adjacent, prominent corner, he completed Austin's first skyscraper. His new building was designed in the Chicago style by Fort Worth architects Sanguinet and Staats. It was enlarged and redesigned was art deco elements in 1930-31 by Wyatt C. Hedrick, Inc. and Edwin Kreisle. An early leader in modern merchandising, Scarbrough's closed this downtown location in 1983." The Scarbrough building is home to Google's Austin office. This model developed by BrightGIS.
