New year, new stores to choose from! Coming to Domain NORTHSIDE this year is a plethora of new shops to grab your luxury goods from, including the long-awaited Gucci store.

These 11 new additions to Domain NORTHSIDE aren't the only shops opening this year—in fact, this is just the beginning. Though few exact dates have been released, the following are all scheduled to open their doors in the first three months of the year, meaning you can look forward to even more grand openings in the latter months.

So what's on the schedule?

Anine Bing | Rock Rose Ave.

Focusing on the minimalistic color palette preferred by Scandinavians but inspired by energetic Americans, Anine Bing will open its very first standalone Texas location at Domain NORHTSIDE this quarter. The eponymous brand seeks to give women a "timeless yet rebellious" new style characterized by high-quality materials like silk, linen, cashmere and 14k gold. Located on Rock Rose across from Nike, the store will be the sixth standalone location in the U.S.

Dr. Martens | Rock Rose Ave.

Another new addition to the Rock Rose strip, Dr. Martens' famous chunky shoes and boots will be available to purchase in person soon. This will be the first Dr. Martens in Austin and the fourth in Texas, with shops in San Antonio, Houston and Dallas.

Gucci | Century Oaks Park

The extremely popular designer brand is making its first Austin appearance, scheduled to open at the very tail end of March. Though previous fans would have had to drive south to the outlet store in San Marcos, or as far as Houston and Dallas to get their Gucci fix, the store is slated to open on Century Oaks Park at The Domain next to Tiffany & Co. in late March.

Albion | Palm Way

Founded by husband and wife duo Dave and Liz Findlay in Salt Lake City, Albion is a new take on sustainably-made women's pieces from swimsuits to athleisure to dresses. Inside the upcoming store on Palm Way, you'll find comfortable, versatile and easy-to-style pieces.

Reformation | Rock Rose Ave.

Boasting a reputation for being 100% carbon neutral, Los Angeles-based women's clothing brand Reformation aims to celebrate the feminine figure while adding in masculine touches. This will be Reformation's second local location, with one already on South Congress.

Vuori | Domain Blvd.

Vuori at the Domain NORTHSIDE will be the brand's Texas debut, joining only 13 stores across the country. A premium activewear apparel company, Vuori sells styles for men and women that are inspired by the California coastline. The new store will be located at the intersection of Rock Rose Ave. and Domain Blvd. across from RH The Gallery.

Joybird | Palm Way

Built around the idea that your home furnishings should be as boldly original as the home around it, Joybird offers both upscale designs and custom-made furniture made for unique tastes. The new showroom on Palm Way will be the second in Texas, with a storefront in Dallas, and the seventh across the country.

Room & Board | Palm Way

With more than 90% of products made by American craftspeople, Room & Board is dedicated to sustainable, quality, modern home furnishings. With plans for Room & Board to open in February, the showroom will open on Palm Way

Specialized | 3200 Palm Way

Coming this spring, Austin-based Specialized will open its first physical location to the many bicycle enthusiasts of Central Texas. The brand has been partnering with bicycle retailers since 1974, so the Palm Way location right next to Nina Berenato will be the first time to have a store in almost 50 years.

Honest Lash | Domain Drive

Coming in hot with its third Austin location, Honest Lash wants to help customers step up their lash and eyebrow game while the rest of their face is shrouded with a mask. Inside are licensed specialists, who are trained to help match your face to the desired length, fullness and shape of their brows and lashes. Honest Lash will open in February.

Westlake Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery | Domain Blvd.

With more than a dozen locations in the Austin area, Westlake Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery is well-known to Austinites. With a full range of dermatology, cosmetic surgery, injections and laser treatments, the new clinic is set to open on Domain Blvd.


1923 Lake Austin mansion demolition request pitting preservationists and some neighbors against owner and city preservation office

By Jonathan Lee

The Planning Commission was split Tuesday on whether to help save an eclectic lakefront estate from demolition by zoning it historic amid concerns over tax breaks and the likelihood that a previous owner participated in segregation as a business owner.

The property in question, known as the Delisle House, is located at 2002 Scenic Drive in Tarrytown. The main house, with Spanish and Modern influences, was built in 1923 by Raymond Delisle, an optician. A Gothic Revival accessory apartment was built in 1946. The current owner applied to demolish the structures in order to build a new home.'
