Las Colinas North Shore
This 17-acre tract of land, which resides along Lake Carolyn in Las Colinas, is strategically situated between the new Irving Convention Center and a new DART LRT Station along the Orange Line. Being proximate to these features as well as the future amenities associated with the Convention Center, FRAM and Unity Hunt seek to develop an integrated mixed use environment that is both highly walkable and accessible to both conventioneers and local workers and residents. A boardwalk is planned for the portions that lay along the lake, with a central park space dedicated to the City of Irving that ties to the DART station. Tree lined interior streets with wide sidewalks and parallel parking assist in dividing the property into highly developable parcels of predominantly four to five story multi-family pods and a hotel. Lake Carolyn Parkway, which divides the property into two pieces, is planned for conversion from a conventional through-traffic collector route to a roadway that is lined with ground floor activated uses along an amenitized streetscape that encourages slower traffic and on-street parking.
