Developers are continuing to move dirt, make way for new hospitality, retail and restaurant businesses and build out the live, work, play vision for The Domain.
Luxury boutique hotel Archer Austin broke ground Dec. 1 as part of Phase 3. La Corsha Hospitality Group, owner of Second Bar + Kitchen, announced its plans Jan. 5 to open a new location inside the hotel on a second-floor outdoor veranda overlooking The Domain.

Nordstrom Inc. is building a 123,000-square-foot store adjacent from Archer Austin on Palm Way. Nordstrom spokesman Dan Evans said construction will be complete by fall 2016.

Located behind Nordstrom on Alterra Parkway is Domain 7, which was completed in December. Jonathan Tate, vice president of Domain developer Endeavor Real Estate Group, said the office building is 75 percent leased, and tenants will include Ottobock Healthcare LP, the Huckabee architecture firm, Autobach Auto Service and homebuilder Brookfield Residential.

Tate said Endeavor's Domain 1 office building is also under construction and will be almost identical in size to the five-story HomeAway building, which opened in October. Domain 1 will be located at the intersection of Domain Drive and Domain Boulevard near HomeAway. Endeavor also has plans for a 75,000-square-foot office building called Domain 5, which will be located at the corner of Alterra Parkway and Esperanza Crossing.

The outdoor lawn venue at The Domain II in front of iPic Theaters opened to the public in late fall for the holiday season. It closed Jan. 2 while installation of a permanent shade structure is completed. Lauren Krumlauf, area director of marketing for The Domain, said the lawn venue is expected to reopen by March.
