An urban resort, a mixed use village and an eco-community were some of the initial visions Irving city leaders had when they knew the Texas Stadium would no longer host football fans. “None of those ideas are off the table. We haven’t identified a specific plan for the site as far as a specific developer for the site,” said Doung Janeway, the city’s chief development officer. Janeway said planned adjustments to the multiple roadways passing through the old Texas Stadium site are now taking shape. “We’ve actually completed Phase One of the Diamond Interchange project, which essentially raised Loop 12 up so that the DART Orange Line can come under Loop 12 into the Urban Center and into DFW Airport,” said Janeway. Janeway said improving the infrastructure will significantly raise the value of the site, making it even more appealing to developers. “There has always been a plan by the city council here to make sure that the Texas Stadium site is developed in a way that is representative of its history. It’s iconic. It’ll be something you remember.
