The Domain is Austin's newest upscale shopping area. It features numerous retailers including Neiman Marcus, Tiffany, Coach, Louis Vuitton and on and on. The plans for this place are amazing and include a 20,000 square foot community center, 10 acre central park, 2 hotels, over 4,000 residential units, 900,000 square feet of retail space, 3 million square feet of office space, several restaurants and 2 hotels.
The only restaurant that is open right now, in phase I is the Kona Grill. It is very good. Check out their reverse happy hour (half price appetizers in the bar and outdoor lounge area.)
Nordstrom has signed a letter of intent to open a store at the Domain in phase II of the mixed use community. The two level 149,000 square foot Nordstrom at The Domain will be the retailer's eighth store in Texas and 2nd store in Austin. Phase II of the Domain will open with the Nordstrom store, which is scheduled to be completed by fall 2011.
