From WFAA – Dallas County News
It’s been nearly four years since Texas Stadium was imploded. And now we’re finally getting a better idea of what may happen to the former home of the Dallas Cowboys. The City of Irving held a public meeting Monday evening to get input and to show off some possible redevelopment plans. One idea is a “Stadium Park,” with an athletic field in the middle of the development. Another option is a “Town Square” surrounded by offices and retail shops and with a stadium at one end. Or how about “The Avocado”? Shaped like the fruit, it’s a mixed-use development. The 79-acre site at the confluence of Loop 12, Highway 114 and the Airport Expressway also has DART rail access and is considered a big part of Irving’s future. In the coming months, the city will work toward finalizing a development plan incorporating ideas from the various proposals.
