Centered in North Texas between Dallas Love Field and Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, the former stadium site property is surrounded by Loop 12 and State Highways (SH) 114 and 183. With beautiful views of the Trinity River, access to the area is ideal.
“We’ve had significant interest in the property over the years, but to market the land, the highways needed to be upgraded. With funding in place, the contract has been awarded,” Irving Mayor Rick Stopfer said. “Once completed, this will be a signature development for the City of Irving.”
Cost of the highway project, called the Diamond Interchange, is nearly $355 million. Completion is expected in 2025.
Another significant piece of stadium site infrastructure, the massive 500-foot Signature Bridge, is slated to be completed by the end of this year. The Signature Bridge was designed to have direct access via elevator and stairs down to the platform for the new Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) Orange Line Station.
The bridge spans SH 114 and will connect the former stadium site to developable land to the north, totaling nearly 1,000 acres. Highway exit ramps are included in the Diamond Interchange project that will provide direct freeway access to both properties. In addition to vehicle passage, the bridge will include a pedestrian pathway and LED lighting.
A mix of single- and multifamily residential, offices, green space and a new DART light rail station are also planned. The future construction is expected to boost the city’s tax base for decades to come.
“This project will stand as the gateway into Irving from Dallas,” Mayor Stopfer said. “There is not a lot of developable land left, and we envision a keystone work-live-play setting in the center of North Texas.”
