Developers are getting closer to starting work on North Texas’ next major mixed-use development.

Verizon and KDC’s $1 billion Hidden Ridge development in Las Colinas will include corporate offices, retail, apartments and hotel rooms on a more than 100-acre site west of State Highway 114.

The huge project – which has been in the works for more than a year – is getting closer to a start, Verizon’s global real estate director Jim Tousignant confirms.

“We’re creating a very special environment with this project,” Tousignant said this week panel discussion organized by the Dallas Architecture Forum.

The Irving mixed-use development is being built on land Verizon has owned for some time across the street from its long-time corporate campus on Hidden Ridge Drive.

A new DART commuter rail station will connect the mixed-use project with Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and downtown Dallas.

Plans for the Hidden Ridge development include more than 2 million square feet of offices, hundreds of apartments, restaurants and shops.

Like Richardson’s CityLine development and the $3 billion Legacy West project in Plano, Hidden Ridge will meet the demands of corporate employers who want a mixed-use environment for workers.

The Dallas office of architect Gensler designed the Irving project.
