Back in January, Irving brought in Scott Polikov of Gateway Planning to assess the future of Heritage Crossing, the city’s downtown district. Polikov’s company has helped transform downtown areas in McKinney, Duncanville and Roanoke. Irving wanted his advice about its downtown area. Polikov presented a slide show to residents and then held a public workshop in February. At the end of February, he submitted his ideas to the city. The next step was the city placing about 20 acres of residential land on the market. The latest about Heritage Crossing is that staff is reviewing bids from developers who want to buy some of the residential land. Doug Janeway, Irving’s chief development officer, said the bids are still confidential while under review, but the hope for the area is that developers will snap up the property and build new single family homes and townhouses.
