Austin developer breaks ground on Domain 7 office tower

Endeavor Real Estate Group is moving quickly on the Domain 7 office tower in the Domain mixeduse project in Northwest Austin.

Earlier this summer, the Austin-based developer said that it would start construction this fall of the six-story, 222,000-square-foot Class A office space.

Just a couple of days into the fall season, Endeavor confirmed that construction has started and is projected to be complete by October 2014. 

Endeavor has lined up some big-name financial partners, including San Francisco-based Shorenstein Properties and Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management.

The partnership also has broken ground on Domain 2 across the street from Whole Foods Market, which is scheduled to open in January after sitting vacant for months. HomeAway Inc. will be the anchor tenant of Domain 2, as revealed earlier this year in an Austin Business Journal story.

Austin-based Nelson Partners is the architect for Domain 7, which features expansive glass curtains. The project includes 944 parking spaces. 

Endeavor will handle leasing at Domain 7. Negotiations are ongoing with several lead tenants, according to Jonathan Tate, vice president of Endeavor in charge of marketing the development.
