Irving’s recent city council approval for the Water Street project, a mixed-use retail and residential project on a high profile 14- acre site at O’Connor Road and Las Colinas Boulevard, has Atlanta-based developer Gables Residential planning to begin construction early next year.
The project includes more than 55,000 square feet of new retail space and about 300-350 luxury residential apartments. The retail and residential project is located across the street from Williams Square and alongside Lake Carolyn. City officials say the project would boost activity in the Las Colinas Urban Center. The City of Irving has made numerous city investments alongside Lake Carolyn to spur development.
