CENTER REVIEW 106 • SHOPPING CENTER BUSINESS • May 2017 R etail development today is trend- ing towards experience, placing a focus on local and specialty retail, unique food concepts and well-designed public gathering space. With its latest — and final — phase of retail development at The Domain in Austin, Texas, Endeavor Real Estate Group has added a heavy dose of local experience, including specialty re- tail with a focus on Austin-based tenants, a variety of chef-driven food concepts — many of which hail from the Lone Star State — and entertainment and gathering space. The Domain mixed-use development — which features buildings owned by both Simon and Endeavor Real Estate Group — is home to 1.8 million square feet of office space, four hotels comprising 775 rooms, over 5,000 multifamily units and roughly 1.8 million square feet of retail.

"Food is so important to- day, and we've done that very successfully. For the new retail portion of the project, we really focused on emerging and first- to-market brands, as well as local retail- ers. It's been really exciting to see how the project has come together." A central theme for this phase of development was celebrating Austin — Adding Entertainment The final phase of development by Endeavor Real Estate Group at The Domain in Austin brings local flavor with specialty retail, dining and entertainment space.
