Brown Building

The Brown Building is a ten-story office and residential tower in downtown Austin, Texas. Completed in 1938 at the southwest corner of 8th Street and Colorado Street, the building was home to many significant companies throughout 20th century Austin, including the holding corporation for the Lyndon Johnson family. The Texas Broadcasting Corporation operated from the building for many years around World War II, counting among its employees humorist Cactus Pryor and future governor John Connally.

The building was renovated and converted to high-end lofts in the early 2000s. Despite its young age, the building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1997.
