New Hotel Approved for Convention Center in Irving, Texas




Good news for anyone looking to book meetings or events in the Dallas/Fort Worth area: Last week in Irving (a city in between Dallas and Fort Worth), the City Council approved a Memorandum of Understanding with Mortenson Development, Inc., which allows the parties to move forward with a development agreement for a $90 million, 350-room, upscale, full-service Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas headquarters hotel.

According to the Irving Weekly, Mortenson Development will fund, design and build the hotel, which will also include a 300-space parking garage, a sky bridge linking the hotel to the ICCLC, and 20,000 square feet of additional meeting room space.

Two upscale hotel brands are reportedly in play.

The development agreement is expected to be finalized in May and with a hotel brand announcement in June. Groundbreaking will take place later this year, and a grand opening is slated for third quarter 2015.

Located immediately adjacent to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, Irving, Texas has more than 75 hotels, 11,000 rooms and hundreds of restaurants. It is home to thousands of corporations and the global headquarters of five Fortune-500 companies.
