The newly renovated Williams Square Plaza, 5217 N. O’Connor Blvd., featuring the iconic Mustangs of Las Colinas reopened after being under construction for the past year. The event debuted Irving’s $7.8 million investment to revitalize Williams Square Plaza and the Mustangs of Las Colinas. The Mustang Museum, also located in the plaza, will reopen later this year.
The Mustangs of Las Colinas remain the focal point of the plaza, inviting visitors to take photos and explore one of the world’s largest bronze equine sculpture displays. The nine mustangs also underwent restorations with the assistance of their creator African wildlife artist Robert Glen. Additional enhancements include improved lighting and fountain upgrades.
Plaza upgrades include an urban greenspace area, which features a pedestrian-friendly open-air space surrounded by trees and landscape improvements, as well as moveable tables, chairs and a multipurpose patio.
William Square Plaza’s newly renovated space enhances Las Colinas as a global corporate office hotspot, while connecting individuals to nearby dining and entertainment options on Water Street, the Toyota Music Factory and the neighboring Lake Carolyn area.
Today, Williams Square is owned and operated through a partnership between Hillwood Urban, Apollo Global, a leading global alternative investment manager, and Vanderbilt Partners, a vertically integrated real estate investment manager focused on office investment opportunities. The City of Irving will maintain the plaza and museum.
