All the old airport buildings have been demolished along with the terminal. The tower though will be kept as a focal point of a master planned urban development to be built at the former 700 acre airport.
At Christmas every year the control tower was decorated with the word "Noel" on the tower's shaft greeting visitors to Austin for the holidays.
Some sources report the height of the control tower as 94 feet.
This was the third, final and tallest control tower for Robert Mueller Municipal Airport. In the 1920s the first tower stood on timber logs; the second tower built in the 1930s stood just 50 feet tall.
