Austin City Hall is the seat of Austin municipal government, located at 301 W 2nd St in downtown Austin, Texas (USA). The current building was completed in 2004.

Austin formerly operated its City Hall at 124 West 8th Street.[1] Antoine Predock and Cotera + Reed Architects designed a new city hall building, which was intended to reflect what The Dallas Morning News referred to as a “crazy-quilt vitality, that embraces everything from country music to environmental protests and high-tech swagger.”[2] The new city hall, built from recycled materials, has solar panels in its garage.[3] The City Hall at 301 W 2nd St opened in November 2004.[4]
