Report: The Domain is getting its tallest building yet with nearly 30-story tower


The Domain will be getting its tallest and largest building yet.

According to the Austin Business Journal, a 26-story tower known as Domain Central 1 is set to have 456,000 square feet of rentable space, more than 10,000 square feet of retail space, an amenity floor and a terrace on each office floor.

Atlanta-based Cousins Properties is behind the tower, though it’s uncertain when shoppers and office workers can expect to see the finished building.

In a recent earnings call, company leaders noted material and construction costs have increased, indicating work on the tower might not start this year as filings indicated. If the timeline does stick to plans indicated in filings, construction would start in November and reach completion in June 2025.

While the final price tag could change, Domain Central 1 has an estimated cost of $143 million.
